Hello and welcome back House-Mouse & Friends! We are so happy you are here!

WOW!! What a great Blog-Hop Party!! THANK YOU so much for hopping along to help us celebrate our 100th Challenge! It was so much FUN browsing through your beautiful entries and we also loved hearing from you!!

As you know, there were many GREAT prizes along our HOP. These great prizes/giveaways are from our incredibly Generous Sponsors. Soooo, if you joined us on the HOP and followed ALL the Mousie rules, you may just be one of our very Lucky winners!!!

Please note that due to the great number of entries, we will need a little extra time to post a final list of the randomly chosen winners who will get the prizes. This list will be posted/announced right here by Wednesday, Aug 3rd, at Noon time (EST).... So please remember to come back and check-in to see if you've won any of these amazing SPONSORED prizes!

For the ADDITIONAL (AND SUPER AWESOME), BLOG-HOP PRIZES provided by our wonderful and beloved Design Team Members, please visit the DT Member's blogs directly to see if YOU have won!!

Our very own, and super fun, super TALENTED Lori Barnett, wants to see you creating an ATC. (also known as ARTIST'S TRADING CARDS).

If you are not familiar with ATCs, these are miniature works of art, approximate size of (2 ½ X 3 ½ inches), or, (63 mm X 89 mm), just small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media and usually traded or exchanged rather than sold. The sky is the limit in this fun art.

For this ATC challenge, we proudly welcome back our GREAT SPONSOR, Simon Says Stamp who will be offering one lucky YOU a $15 Gift Card to the wonderful Simon Says Stamp store! Sooo, if you want to win this fabby prize, be sure to join us!!
