Challenge #1 - New!!

Welcome to House Mouse and Friends first challenge. I do hope many of you will be able to play along.

For our first challenge we would like to see your project based on the theme 'NEW' (with this being a new blog, what a great challenge for us all to start on), this could be New Home, New Baby etc etc - it's up to you!

It's entirely your choice what you make - card, Lay out, atc, etc anything goes as long as it features at least one House Mouse or Friends image and follows the 'New' theme.

With this being our first challenge i have decided to give away a prize to one lucky winner chosen at random, all entrants before Sunday @ 8pm (GMT) will qualify to enter. Entrants from across the globe are welcome to enter. The winner will be announced after our next challenge has been announced. So here's whats up for grabs:
Promenade Tilda - Brand new stamp
Papermania Ribbons - spots and flowers citrus
Dovecraft Pastel brads
5 stamped images (not shown, these will be stamped on SU whisper white using staz-on ink)
Here's what our lovely DT have produced and don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!











Please leave us a comment with a link to your card. For those who don't have a blog please feel free to email them to me.

Congratulations! Just found your blog. I love House Mouse and would love to participate.
Have a question. Will the challenges be posted on Mondays or Saturdays (as was the case this week)?And will you have a week from the post date to complete the challenge?


Sassy Crafts said...

Sorry if i confused matters, i start preparing the post earlier than Monday cause as you can see there is alot to prepare. All challenges will be posted on Mondays as was this one. Thanks for raising the question.

Juliana said...

Between my computer UPstairs and my stamping area DOWNstairs I messed up the theme. I thought it was FIRST instead of NEW--I tried to edit--but it is a bit of a stretch. Feel free to disqualify me if you need to.

Here is my card:

Congrats on the new blog--Fantastic work by the design team!!

I just started a new blog on Aug. 8, and on Aug. 11 I posted two HM cards that fit perfectly with the theme of this challenge. So, since the blog is new, I'm going to link to it. Please look for the 8-11 post. I love these little guys and ordered several just last week from HM. What a fun challenge, and what great cards!!
