House-Mouse Chin Up

Hello, everyone!  A warm welcome to my newest follower - Cindy Womack - so nice to have you here! Today I am sharing a House-Mouse card - there's a fun challenge and blog hop over at House-Mouse and Friends and I wanted to play along!  I've used a cling-mount rubber stamp called Chin Up and coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.

I used my Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders to make a fun design and added a snowflake button tied with twine.  The DP is from BoBunny and the sentiment is a clear stamp from Hampton Art.
