House-Mouse fun with Mudpie

Hello Everyone,
I am here today sharing my crafty needed dose of House-Mouse Design by Stampendous! I find them so adorable in their whimsical fun cute way of posing in there memorable backgrounds I had to jump in and have fun coloring one.
 We have been having some really hot days here in Texas and sometimes I feel like dipping myself in a glass of iced lemonade instead of drinking it. This particular stamp was one of my first House-Mouse stamps by Stampendous! This one is Mudpie in 'Splish, Splash...A Citrus Bath'. 

I rounded the cutout glass with a pencil to give depth instead of using my embossing tools that give dimension. Added pop dots in the center to give the rounded effect.
I cut the lemon separately and pinched with fingers on the stamp sliced area to give it dimension and placed two pop dots to keep its dimension.
 I am so happy I recently got to build my House-Mouse stamp collection by having a fun scavenger hunt through the Clearance items at Hobby Lobby and I can't wait to play with those.   While Blog Hopping I found a  bi-weekly challenge blog called House-Mouse & Friends created by group of women who created it with their love for these critter stamps.  And to top it off this Month of August 'Stampendous' is having a House-Mouse Challenge...woohoo.
Today I am entering this card to :
