Spooky Mouse!

Oh Lucky Me!  I am thrilled to have been offered a second GDT spot on the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, and of course I jumped at the chance, well....... which HM fan wouldn't!

For this fortnights challenge they would like to see Halloween/any or all of the colours Black/Orange/Yellow/Green.
I don't normally do Halloween cards,  and don't have any suitable stamps, so needed to improvise and it was a case of letting the imagination run wild, so to speak!  This is actually a cute stamp called 'Lip Stamp' (nice red lips on the stamp) but I changed it to vampire teeth and gave  him a cloak (coloured with Promarkers and added glitter)
The orange and green papers are from a handmade paper pack and I distressed all the edges with Walnut Stain DI.  Hand drawn spider and web - couldn't resist! Sentiment was computer.
Do have a look at the Blog as the Design Team have made some fabulous creations for you inspiration, and I really feel very privileged to work with these girls again.
Thanks for looking and I do hope you like my little offering - and you are inspired to enter this great challenge.
I am also entering this card in the following challenges
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  Stamps & Fun = creativity - Halloween
  Victorine Stamps - Halloween
  One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
  Sparkles Forum - Halloween
  Challenge up Your Life - Halloween
  Scecret Crafter - Anything Goes as long as it Sparkles
