Shimmery Pumpkin Pie

If you’ve perused my blog, you know I LOVE House Mouse stamps. I was so excited to see the last House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge because I have the stamp set they used for the DT Kit Challenge. The problem, I’m always a day behind getting my posts online so I missed the contest. But, the card is so cute, I can’t be too upset. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

Image Detail
I was at a retreat this weekend and fell in love with Smooch Spritz. This angle shows the Vanilla Shimmer pretty clearly. In real life, it’s just an added layer of shimmery goodness and not so intense. I bought the product in purple as well and can’t wait for more spritzing.
