***House-Mouse Designs Gallery!!!!

I am excited to announce this envelope has been chosen by Barry Percy, Co-Owner/Co-Founder of House-Mouse Designs Inc., to be posted in their gallery on their official website at I hope you will visit their site, enjoy the gallery and purchase some cute stamps for Christmas!
Thank you Barry Percy for this opportunity to share my work with others.
Today I made an envelope for the House Mouse Challenge #83 at
This was a plain white envelope sponged with Moss and True Thyme inks then stamped using SU! Bells and Boughs and the House Mouse stamp "Having a Ball." Envelope was colored with Prismacolor watercolor pencils then glittered with Martha Stewart glitter. "Having a Ball" was cut out and pasted to the envelope. This is a fun challenge and there is still a couple days left to enter. I hope to see you there!

    Always appreciate anyone taking the time to visit me!

    Your envelope is great, I must admit that I have not tried to make envelopes!Even though I have templates everywhere!

    The mail man will be covered in glitter,hee hee.
    I usually put little messages on my envelopes for the postie/mail man to thank him for doing a good job getting my card to it's destination.

    Wishing you & your family a Great Christmas & a Fantastic New Year!

    All the best for 2011!
