House Mouse & Friends for the love of the Game

Our new challenge for this week is Football orientated.

Our super sweet DT Member STACY Morgan, of TWINSHAPPY is a BIG FAN of FOOTBALL, so she wants to see us creating projects with the USA GREEN BAY PACKERS Football TEAM in mind. Yeap, that's right!  That's her Twin Boy's Favorite Football Team. So, A FOOTBALL FRENZY theme it is!!!!  
Doesn't have to be Green Bay Packers orientated, or even American football (nothing wrong with a good old game of SOCCER I say!!) I seriously considered using MAN U as my inspiration but feared I might just get lynched!!
Check out the DT's  cards there is plenty of inspiration there 

Esme and Nancy are both our GD's again this week and we are looking for GD's for future months so pop along to the blog if you'd like to have a go!!!

Here is my take on Stacy's theme. I have lost a packet of House Mouse stamped images - naughty little blighters have gone walkabout - so I didn't have the image I wanted and had to improvise.
I decided we would have our mouses celebrating a win - thought that might keep Stacy happy!! I used some 'grass' paper as backing  and used the image called 'Olive a Party' and coloured it in Copics, I stamped some mousie footprints along some yellow ribbon and placed that one some green, twirled it around and fastened it to the card with glossy accents. I made a yellow flower with the EK Succes punch, cut the tips with some of those fancy scissors then scrunched it up hoping it looked somewhat like a rosette. I stamped the little mouse called 'Jumping for Joy' and cut him out with a round nestie and computer orientated the sentiment, which for some strange reason looks totally the wrong colour. 

We have the lovely DI from Di's digi downoads sponsoring us this week with
3 free digi's for the lucky winner!!

I love how the twirly ribbon with those footprints extends from the hopping mousie & how the whole thing echoes the twirly bit of the image. The grass bacKground is thoroughly effective too.
