How about a Friday Challenge!

Addict meets Spark!

I love doing challenges! They're perfect to get ya started on a project. You ever want to make a card...but just don't have a clue where to start? THAT is when you do a challenge. There's challenges all over the place on blogs & forums. Sketches, Color Combos, Special Techniques, etc. Don't forget to come back to my blog on Monday's for the new House Mouse & Friends Challenges.

This card actually covers a couple challenges I wanted to do. I punched out the circle with a hand punch. Stamped the little ghosts and cute them out. Boo is stamped on the inside. When you open the card you can see the rest of the sentiment. I traced over Boo with Clear Spica Glitter Pen for some sparkle.

One is for the "Share Your Spark Fridays" challenge over on Heather's Blog One Little Spark. Her challenge is to create something where a portion of the cardstock you're using has been removed. This is fun! Think of all the possibilities!! See all details on Heathers blog HERE.

Another challenge is Weekly Challenge #55 on the A Muse Addicts Forum. This week's challenge is called *Meeting Inspiration*. The challenge is to find a VMAA (virtual meeting of a muse addicts) card that you love and make your own card based on that one. I picked a card that the awesome Julie made on the VMAA Challenge she hosted HERE. She made a totally cute card (as she always does!) with a cut-out.

Another thing...A Muse is getting ready to release some new Halloween stamps!! WAHOO!!! All us A Muse Addicts can hardly stand the wait!!! So to pass the time we decided to get out our old Halloween stamps and create something. I CAN'T WAIT to see what's new!!!! BRING IT ON! LOL. Like I don't have enough stamps already! ha ha We can NEVER have too many stamps!
