I loved putting on a costume and Trick or Treating as much as the mice do. After supper was the best time; just dark enough to lend atmosphere and populate the neighbourhood with imagined ghosts and ghouls, but still safe for visibility. A cup of hot cocoa on my return was always a welcome accompaniment to my hoard of treats.
Years later, I relived Halloween memories as I accompanied my two sons from house to house. I had the chance to accompany my older granddaughters once--a special treat!
The three cards in this post were all made with House Mouse stamps. From top to bottom: Tweet Treats for All, Gettin' Spooky, and Incognito.
The yellow card stock on the first card was embossed with Branches with Leaves, by Ellison.The third card was reverse-masked to make the moon before it was stamped with Trees Backgrounder by Cornish Heritage Farms. Stampin' Up Night of Navy was then sponged over the image. The little ghostie was stamped and cut out before being added to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Watercolouring was done with Stampin' Up Watercolour Wonder crayons.
The third card will be entered in the Fall/Halloween/Anything Goes challenge at http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.ca
