Back To School with the HM&F Monday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today sees the next fabulous challenge over at the  


The theme is 

Back to School or Office

with two fabulous sponsors



One winner will get a $25 gift certificate from House-Mouse Designs


A Second Prize by America
In addition, a second Lucky Player will get this awesome (hard to find) Design of the Month House-Mouse Stamp from April 1999, called "Computer Tutors", and featuring Monica, Maxwell and Mudpie... isnt is great for the current theme?


I decided to create a notelet, but do hop over  to the main challenge site to see the rest of the amazing inspiration from my sister meeces :)
The base colour is a tan pearlescent paper as is the contrast.  The MS PATP creates the first layer and a Marianne die the second under the image.  The sentiment is from the little labels pack by Wild Rose Studio.

The image coloured in copics to match the papers in the main.  The image is called Class Clown (August 2011) with Maxwell getting up to his tricks again.
Do hop over and join us for the challenge :)

Hi Kate
I have not commented for a while but your previous cards I have not commented on are super gorgeously fantastic and this one is no exception. I was going to say you used "Kraft paper" but then on closer inspection you used something far more posher than that "tan pearlescent paper". Very posh indeed!
Love the punch work. The house mouse images always make me smile and you colour them so beautifully.
Is it me or do you have some new House mouse watermark across it as well? Or it was probably on your other cards before but I've never noticed it as usual!
