House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge ,,, HALLOWEEN

Good Morning :-) it's time for a new theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. It was Scoopy's turn to choose the theme for this fortnight and she chose Halloween

Now I didn't have any Halloween stamps ( I gave mine away in a candy and forgot to replace it !! :-/) so my lovely teamie Sue Drees came to my rescue and sent me some images by express mail ,,, thanks Sue ,,BUT ,, Christine and Mary have both made absolutely AMAZING creations using general House Mouse stamps,, so even if you don't have any specific stamps it is still possible to join in

We are being sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a choice of House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hoppper stamp for one lucky entrant :-)

The image I used for my card is called Just Clowning Around and the one I used on the candy bucket is called Sweet Friends I coloured them with copics and inked the edges with black soot distress ink. The papers are from Funky Fairys and are unfortunately not available any more,, shame ,, they are fab !! I did a few faux stitches around the edges too. The gorgeous bats , spiders and punched cats are all a RAK from teamie Christine :-) I made the Trick or Treat charm using shrink plastic and a Studio G clear stamp.

I cut the candy bucket on my Cricut and added a few Snickers ,,, unfortunately they disappeared shortly after the piccy was taken :-)

Heather said...

Fabulous set Lols, love the image, especially the little mousie in the middle, he's so cute!!! Fabulous details, and the candy buvket is stunning. At least you waited until you'd photographed them - I usually have to pack the bottom of my boxes with tissue to make it look like I haven't eaten half the goodies as I go along.
hugs Heather xx
