Yep, we are having a Blog Hop.  Our talented teammate, Kate, has chosen the theme for Challenge # 131
"SPOOKY/ Sweet & Colourful"
Using the colors Orange, Purple, Lime Green and Black
Your card or project does NOT have to be Halloween, you can use any image
and make your card Spooky or Sweet, using the colors above.
I decided to go with Spooky AND Sweet!

This is the House Mouse October Stamp of the Month.  Wow, what a haul
of candy corn this witchy mouse is bring home!

I started with a white scalloped card base, added a mat of
black spider web paper.  The Oval die is Spellbinders.
Bat was purchased at Michaels.  Spiders are punched.
Ghost and the word spooky are Sizzix dies.  The leaves at the bottom the of oval
is a wonderful die by Impression Obsession.
I colored with Copics.
Our very generous sponsor for our Blog Hop is House Mouse Designs, and they
have offered a $25 Gift voucher for their online site.  Please remember, shipping and
taxes are the responsibility of the winner.
Here is the list you need to follow along the hop:

My spooky and sweet blog hop candy will go to a randomly
drawn winner after the blog hop, who follows the rules of the

Whew, if you're still with me, I hope you will ink up those House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper
Stamps and join in the Blog Hop fun.  This Challenge and Hop runs through November 3rd at
midnight, EST.
Thanks for stopping by today, have a great Monday.  Until later............

Sue, Now I'm hungry for some Candy Corn. They look delicious. Wonderful coloring, as usual from you. Love those Sizzix die pieces and your spiders, etc. The different papers you used for background and the die pieces all go so well together and they are perfect for the theme. Viewing your card is, again as usual for me, a big Treat!!!
Enjoy your week, and, of course, pass on my kisses to Keeya.
