Hey Pumpkin

Happy House-Mouse Monday!

WOOHOO!! It's my turn picking the challenge! Since it's October, I decided we needed to dig into some pumpkin. Halloween is just a few weeks this is perfect!

House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #155 - Hey Pumpkin
Create a project using at least 1 House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffies image along with our challenge theme "Hey Pumpkin."  You can use pumpkin images, pumpkin colors, pumpkin embellishments or whatever. Most of all...have a crafty good time!

Go check out all the challenge details and see the AWESOME samples our design team & guest designers have come up with HERE.

I used one of the most adorable House-Mouse stamps I have ever seen! eeeek! It's called "Leaf-ing The Comfort Of Home" and features Muzzy, Amanda & Monica. So stinkin' CUTE!

 Along with the pumpkin in the stamp, I used pumpkin cardstock and pumpkin buttons from A Muse Studio. The card base has mice footprints stamped all over...cause it's totally necessary.

I just love coloring these little critters. The sky in the background is colored with a Copic marker. The rest is all colored with colored pencils.  You can't see it in the pic...but I added some shimmer with a Spica Glitter pen on the pumpkin cutouts and leaves. Gotta have some bling...right? ;)

This challenge has really put me in the mood for all things Fall. How about you?

Have fun creating!
