Crafty Gals Group Monthly Challenge

It is time for the the monthly Crafty Gals Blog Group Challenge.  Barb is this month's hostess and here is her challenge to us  "Many of us will be taking a summer trip someplace, if even just for a weekend. So, your challenge is to create a card that shouts summer fun! Maybe a camping trip in the forest--or a trip to the ocean for a lighthouse tour or time on the beach--or a flight to another country to see the sights--or road trip to see local attractions--or biking along the rails to trails--or ....................... you get the idea. Shows us image that highlights a summer experience you have had or are planning to do in the future. Please include some patterned paper on your card--along with an additional embellishment or two........ If you want to share on your blog post a fun experience you have had on a vacation, that would be great! We all love to hear about trips--just not all of the hundreds of slides or photos."

So for this month's challenge I used one of my House Mouse stamps.  Everytime I see this stamp, I think of hot weather and summer.  Love those cute mice laying on those ice cubes. I colored the image with Prismas and baby oil.
