A Mousey Halloween Card

 Yesterday evening I finished my first little Halloween card. I don't usually make them because we don't really celebrate Halloween much. But I like the colors associated with it and especially the colors called for in the flollowing challenges that I am entering this in:
http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.com/ - "Halloween Color" #106,
(use black, orange, yellow and green)
http://houseofgilli.blogspot.com/  #18 "Purple, Orange, Green, Black & White (pick 3)"
Items used:
House Mouse stamp "Contented Mudpie"* &
  hand-drawn pumpkin, both colored with colored pencils
"Happy Halloween" sentiment is computer generated
Silk leaf, wire curly-Q's, black ribbon and netting - all from my stash
The green Halloween cardstock is Imaginisce
(the rest of the cardstock are brands I forgot to make note of)
The "BOO" sentiment is from the "Holidays" set* from StampingScrapping
Inks: orange is Stampabilities die ink, black is StazOn solvent ink
Adhesives: Glue Dots*, ScorTape*, ProGlider- high tac*
Rhinestones are from Target, I think!
AND... I used LOTS of "Icicle" Stickles*!

Items with a * are available @ http://www.stampingscrapping.com/

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you have a minute, please leave a comment...just "Hello" is fine! I'm trying to find out if I have my settings for my blog set wrong. Is it difficult to leave comments here? I do have that trouble with a few other peoples' blogs and hope I am not causing frustration for others! Let me know if there is a problem! THANK YOU!
