**Make Wishes Come True**, HMFMC113

Eeek!  Hello Friends! Welcome back to HMFMC!
WOW!! Our LOVE themed Blog-Hop was a huge success thanks to you! We are truly overjoyed at the amazing response and thrilled with all your gorgeous entries! THANK YOU!!

You are probably wondering if you have won one of the many amazing prizes, heh??  If you played along the Hop and you visited our Team Member's blogs following the DT's individual candy rules, then you may have already won their hidden candy!  These DT's may be posting their Candy winners as early as today, but if not, a post announcement with a complete WINNERS' LIST will follow here on Wednesday, February 15th, 2012.  So please be sure to check back then to see if you have WON!

For our Sponsored PRIZES and the Team Prize, we still need a couple more days to sort through all your fabulous entries to check that all Blog-Hop rules were followed.  With so many entries, it was very difficult for our Team to have to choose the winners. The DT is voting on our top 5 favorite entries and will offer the top 2 players with the most votes, the top 2 prizes and a Guest Designer Spot with our Mousey Team for the month of March!!! Isn't that exciting?  So please go check the DT's blogs to see if you have won, or check-back here on Wednesday when a final Master List of ALL winners will follow!

  **NEW CHALLENGE #113**
This next challenge is being hosted by our mega talented Teamie, Heather Gilfor-Bond, who has chosen to go with a *Make Wishes Come True* theme.  This theme can be anything from a wishing well, a birthday wish, to wishing upon a flower....etc.... really any interpretation you'd like to create to "Make Wishes Come True" is what we would like to see! :)

**Our CHALLENGES now have a CODE**
We dont want to miss your lovely entries at any online galleries, so we are going to start labeling our House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge entries with a Mousey Code going forward. So, the code for Challenge 113, will be HMFMC113.  Please use the codes whenever uploading your projects to any online galleries. This will make it much easier for us to find your HM&F work.

This new challenge is proudly being Sponsored by;

In business since 2002, Simon Says Stamp is striving to offer you the best selection of Rubber Stamps, Altered Art, Scrapbooking, Artist Trading Cards and Paper Crafting Supplies in the world. They stock over 100,000+ items, offer quick service and 1 stop shopping at a great price!
PRIZE ; A $25 Gift Card PRIZE to the Simon Says Stamp Shop!
(Please note; all prize shipping/handling and tax fees are the responsibility of the winner.)

** Mid-Way Challenge Post Reminders**
Since our challenges run for two weeks, we have decided to implement a new phase in which we will post Mid-Way/Mid-Challenge reminders for our Mousey audience to see.  In doing so, we are thrilled to say that our beloved Vicki Parson, is also back home to our Mousey Design Team now that she has returned to crafting. We're very excited that Vicki will be joining most DT challenges as well as posting these great Mid-Way Reminders for you too!  These mid-way postings will help you remember to take-out your HM&F stamps and join in the fun for your chance to win some FABBY prizes! :)  What do you think about this new Mid-Way posting?? Isn't this a great idea??  :)

In 2012, our Design Team started a new special thing here in which our first two winners of the new month's first challenge will also continue on to be our following month's Guest Designers!  Isnt that exciting for you, our beloved Mousey players??  So without further delays, we'd like to introduce our very special February Guest Designers,  Carol and Tanja. 

CONGRATULATIONS to you both & welcome to our House-Mouse & Friends MC Team Ladies!  We are very excited to have on board this month as we look forward to working alongside you. !!! :)
