Good Monday Morning!  Time for another House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.  The Challenge for the next two weeks is to create a card or project using Halloween images OR colors.  You must use a House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper on your card.

I have used a stamp called Trick or Treat Night, which shows some of our little mice friends out trick or treating in their costumes.  How cute are they!!  Love the little ones!!  I colored with Copics.  The pumpkin border is from K and Company.

I also made this goodie basket using the little individual stamps of little trick or treaters.
The complete directions for making this basket from one piece of card stock are on my other Monday post, below.

Here is a picture of the basket from the other side. (more cute stamps)

Close up of this wonderful stamp!

Hope you join us this challenge.  If you don't have any House Mouse Halloween Stamps, cut one of the characters from another stamp and add a pumpkin or ghost, etc.  be creative!  You have until Sunday, November 7th to link an entry for this challenge. We are looking forward to stopping by your blog to see what you came up with.  The prize for the winning entry chosen by random draw is a House Mouse stamp of your choice from Simon Says Stamp.

Stop on over at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge site to see what the super talented ladies of the design team came up with, you won't be disappointed!!
