House Mouse ~ Float Your Boat

I think I've been bitten by the House Mouse bug!  Ever since I discovered the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog, I've been wanting to participate every week.  

This week, they're looking for a bit of sparkle.

Try as I might, I could not capture the generous dose of Wink of Stella I added to the flower that little Maxwell is holding.  I did however, add a couple strips of glittery washi tape to add more sparkle.

He's offering boat rides for .05 cents, however no one can seem to wake him from his cheesy dreamland.  

You can join in on the fun here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Super cute card Birgit :-) the image is just so sweet and I love the sparkly strips and that you used some Wink Of Stella too, sparkle is difficult to photograph, so am sure this looks even more super sparkly IRL :-)

Thanks for joining us on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, and so glad that you are looking forward to joning in even more! :-D

So cute! Love the scene and wish I could join him! (Don't think I can fit in a walnut shell) Love all the signage too!

I would pay him lots of nickles to ride in that cute little boat! This is so sweet, Birgit and the polka dots kick up the cuteness factor a notch!

That's a great deal on those boat rides, you could stay drifting along all day :)
Terrific coloring, love the framing and the extra sparkle you gave to it, so sweet!

Maxwell, how cute lol So hard to capture WOS on a card, but don't we just love the sparkle and shimmer it adds? This is an adorable card. Loving the dies you used and the way you put it all together. It's just FUN!
