Too Cute to Spook!

It's challenge time again at My Craft Spot, and this one is such a fun one:  Too cute to spook!  Last month, I found a great deal on "Happy Hauntings".  I was so excited to see the adorable little mouse and decided that he would be perfect for the challenge!  He's just SO cute!
I did make a few small changes to the image by making the mouse's arm a bit longer and by changing the face on the little pumpkin basket.  (I did this with my Gypsy.)  I used a bat/web frame from Happy Hauntings as well.  The patterned papers are from K&Company's Spooktacular stack and the solid papers are from my stash.  I used a metallic silver cardstock for the mouse.  The sentiment and tiny little star stamps are from My Craft Spot's Candy Corn Kisses set, stamped on a banner from Happy Hauntings.  I LOVE the tiny little star!  It's so versatile and could easily be used as a snowflake or flower too.  It worked perfectly to fill in the empty spaces on my banner.  I also stamped the little star on each of the corners, punched with an EK Success corner punch.  I finished things off with some brads and fun Orange Licorice Baker's Twine from My Craft Spot.

Head over to My Craft Spot to see the rest of the Design Team inspiration - and to link up your own "Too Cute to Spook" project!  And don't forget that My Craft Spot is looking for FOUR new design team members.  You can read all the details HERE

Hi Kate!

I must first say...I love the mouse wearing the little mask, that is adorable! The card turned out very cute. Thanks for the nice compliment on my tray and also for following CricutandGrasshopper. I noticed you did leave a comment at Craftingmisfit, even though she hasn't posted the tray project yet, so I will see to it that you are entered for the Sizzix folder. That way you don't have to worry about going back and checking. Thanks again Kate, I look forward to blogging with you! (Oh, and I'm a new follower here too!)
