Hints and Tips
I love House Mouse stamps but I couldn't afford all the stamps so I just bought some of the individual mice and then combine them with my other stamps to make a scene.  For this card I used Nutcrafters Ice Cream Parlour stamp for the background and Craft Lounge cocktail from the Beauty and the Beach stamp set and last but not least House Mouse What? stamp.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge: Challenge 122 Summer Refreshments.
Papertake Weekly Challenge: Bingo (Punch, free, button).
Fab'n'Funky Challenge: Challenge 126 Polka Dots.
