“Rain Flower” for HMFMC #289

Front view of Rain Flower House Mouse handmade card

Rain Flower was the second House Mouse stamp image that I purchased.  I know that I am way behind on this house mouse craze journey!  But isn’t it fun to be excited about new stuff?  And so the buying commences, LOL!

Monica is the featured House Mouse for Rain Flower.  The fact each mouse has a name and a suggested color scheme is a fun characteristic of House Mouse stamp images!

I want to play along with a challenge that is new to me called House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.  The #289 HMFMC challenge includes “Spring” with the Anything Goes general theme.  Since April showers bring May flowers, it seems fitting to add my Rain Flower to the gallery of House Mouse and Friends!

The main image may be House Mouse, but most of the remaining card elements are products by Stampin’ Up!

    Oh, Katy, I love “critter” cards and this one is absolutely adorable! You might just be pulling me along with you in your journey because your use of Stampin’ Up products made this card so much cuter (if that’s even possible LOL). Wonderful card for a friend! Off to pin…

    The House Mouse family is such a cute line. I’m so glad you found our challenge. Your card is adorable and beautifully embellished. I like the rain drops, too. Remember we are an anything goes challenge each week with the optional theme. So, if you want to use the same image twice until you build your stash please do so. Thank you for joining us at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge. Bunny – House Mouse DT
