House-Mouse and Friends Challenge and Inspiration Hop

We have a team of designers involved in a challenge for the next two weeks with House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog. 

Grab your House-Mouse stamps, that includes the Gruffies and HappyHoppers too, and find some stencils to use together! Why? Because there are prizes involved. Check out the Stampendous blog post today for details.

Here is my sweet sample today using House-Mouse stamp and Dreamweaver Stencils to fit the challenge. The supplies and instructions follow below, but first I wanted to share the rest of the links for the inspiration hop for today.
