Today begins a new Challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday, and our theme for the next two weeks, which was chosen by our fellow, talented teammate, Stacy, is to make an ATC using a House Mouse, Gruffie, or Happy Hopper stamp and then use it on your card or project.
The challenge begins today and runs through October 20th at Midnight.
I made my ATC (an Artist Trading Card measures 2 1/2" x 31/2") using the Stampabilities Stamp
Sweet Find (HMUR1054)  Paper is My Mind's Eye, Halloween Scary Sparkles.
Border Punch is EK Success.  Pumpkins and sentiment is Offray ribbon.  The October 31 sentiment is a sticker.  Colored with Copic Markers.

Here is a side view of the treat pouch.  Yummy Candy Corn and Cocktail Peanuts mixed
together is the treat.
Our generous sponsors for this challenge are:
Simon Says Stamp, a 25 gift certificate
Sweet Stamp Store, a $10 Gift Certificate
Take a look at what the design team came up with on our House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog, then ink up those stamps and join us for this fun challenge!  We look forward to visiting you.


We must say goodbye to our awesome September Guest Designers Crafteresa and Kristina. Thank you ladies for joining us and for contributing such gorgeous samples. With a new month ahead we are also welcoming two new Guest Designers. They are super talented. Please help us welcome Dawn and Silvia to the Team this month.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Monday.  Until later....................
