House Mouse Monday Challenge #131 and Hop

      There are some exciting things going on over at the House Mouse Monday Blog.  That excitement includes a hop with tons of prizes, and a new Challenge with a Spooky, Sweet, and Colorful theme.  Be sure to click on the link and check out all the wonderful inspiration.  The colors of choice are Orange, Purple, Lime Green and Black.


     Today my card uses a House Mouse stamp called Monster Mouse.  I trimmed out the scary one and added him to a Halloween background with die cuts from K&Co.  I added a wee bit of hemp twine and an multi- color gem.  The card base is a soft orange card stock I just unearthed from my stash.

     Hope all is well and praying that Sandy takes a turn out to sea, this weekend.  If you are to be in her path, take things seriously, and batten down the hatches!  Thanks for stopping for a visit.  I just love your comments.

Great scene you came up with for this "scary" mouse. You did get all of the required colors into this card. The hemp just fits nicely. We have spent the morning bringing things in and moving things around. In Irene we lost 6 trees and a Gazebo frame. Have all my batteries, lanterns, etc. I'm one of those people that always prepares for these things and most times people think I'm foolish, but I'd rather be foolish and safe than sorry.
