House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge

Trick or Treat

Wooohooo!! It's Monday! I know everyone is totally excited that it's Monday...right?! hee hee hee. Well...you should be.........beeeeecause it's time for you Monday Morning Kick Start! Another FUN House Mouse and Friends Challenge :)

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #8 - Halloween.
Let's see some creations with Halloween as the theme. If you don't own any Halloween stamps then just use a Halloween color scheme :) It's entirely your choice what you make - card, lay out, atc, etc anything goes as long as it features at least one House Mouse or Friends image and follows this weeks theme. AND....there's Blog Candy up for grabs this week!! Get all the details about the challenge & blog candy - plus see all the awesome DT Halloween creations HERE.



For my card I used Beates Weekend Sketch Challenge #60. My favorite way to color in these cute little creatures is with colored pencils and Gamsol. I LOVE these images!! They always turn out SO CUTE! Look at that little tongue :')

The main image is stamped with VersaFine Black - but I stamped off once to get a little lighter image. The orange background paper is retired from Stampin'UP! I put two black eyelets in the corner of the image layer and tied black twine through them. Main image layer is popped up on dimensionals.



So.....who's gonna play along this week?! Remember...if you don't have any HM & Friends Halloween stamps...you can create something using Halloween colors.

Lori, this little one is so cute with it's pumpkin presumably full of treats. Your coloring is great. I love coloring with my Prismacolor pencils, but I've never tried the Gamsol. I'm wondering if that would make a difference. Anyway, very cute card!
