EEK!


For our House Mouse & Friends Challenge this week, we were to make a Halloween card. I love this little mousie dressed up like a fierce bat. He has the cutest little fangs - I think they are hard to see in this picture, but they are so "fierce"! I got this great background paper on my trip to North Carolina when I went shopping with my friend, Deb {beadn&stampn}. It's a Heidi Grace design. Some of the bats have glitter on their wings, so I added a bit to my mouse's bat wings. I put a piece of it on the inside (which you can see a little bit of) to carry the design to the inside, which says "Have a very MICE Halloween!" The brads in the corners are by The Paper Studio.

A few weeks ago, Monica (Hambo Stamps) sent her Design Team two fun stamps and a challenge to come up with a project showcasing those stamps. The neat thing about it is that the thumbprint is actually from Monica's thumb! She will have fun stuff with these stamps all week long, so be sure to head on over to "Talk to the Ham" and get a glimpse of what she made too! None of us have discussed what anyone has made, so we will have to see if we had the same ideas! Libby and MacKenzie are having "Hambo Week" all week long, with lots of cool stuff, so check that out! My Hambo Week will be next month!

Be sure to check out the other Design Team blogs and see what they came up with as well:





And here is mine:


I used my Heidi Grace paper again, and carried the spider idea over into the thumbprint stamp. His eyes are tiny white brads (CTMH) on which I drew little black pupils with a Sharpie marker. This was a fun challenge, and I will have a few more projects with these two stamps later this week!

Have a GREAT Monday!

I LOVE this Judy! I probably thought of 100 different things to make with the fingerprint, and yet a spider wasn't one of them. SO stinkin' CUTE! Thanks for playing! :)

Judy, your HM card is adorable! This looks like Monica. She is the smallest of the mice, presumably Amanda's little sister. She looks so cute in her little bat wings, and the paper is perfect with it. Very cute card!
