HMFMC #270-ANYTHING GOES/OPTIONAL THEME 'HOT SUMMER DAYS"

I forgot when I posted earlier that since I won last months House Mouse challenge, they asked if I would like to do a post for their themes this month.  The one this time is Hot summer days.  Boy have we had those around here, when we go for our walks we try to find the most shaded areas and this little guy is doing the same, he is relaxing underneath a flower to keep that harsh sun off of him.

I colored the image with my Spectrum noir markers, adding a few stamped blades of grass for the pot to sit in and stenciled the sun and clouds.





If you would like to play along check out the House Mouse challenge HERE they have some great prizes that they give away, and some great inspiration from their design team.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Oh how fun that you got to be a guest designer for house mouse. I was going to look for one or two of these at Tuesday morning if I am able to go soon. I love your sweet mouse in the pot. The coloring looks vibrant and summery. Yes, we have had hot weather. Today it is not humid but it was 89. Tomorrow the humidity will be back. Have a great day.

House Mouse stamps have sure been around and popular for a long time. Even if some are retired they never really grow old. They're all so cute and I love seeing what these mischievous meeces are up to! Connie, I absolutely love this card! Beautifully colored and so clean and simple in the design. The sky is awesome. Fantastic!

Congratulations on your win and guest design spot. You coloured this image to perfection. I should see if I still have my House Mouse stamp. I purged a lot of stamps when I moved but I think I kept the one house mouse on a sunflower

Absolutely adorable card. Beautiful coloring. We here in Florida also know hot. Ugh! It's been terrible and the end isn't in sight for at least 3 months. Thank you for joining us as a Guest Designer at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge. {Bunny} Designer for House Mouse and Friends
