7 Kids College Fund ~ Halloween

Halloween certainly seems to be a VERY popular theme this week!   This is my 3rd challenge card with this theme.   This time it’s for the 7 Kids College Fund challenge blog.

I’ve used one of the cutie pie new release images from LaLa Land, now up for preorder at 7 Kids College Fund.   This is Big Panda Marci.

The sentiment is from an old pack of Halloween stickers in my stash from Jolee’s boutique – but thought it would be fun to match Marci’s shiney black boots!

Be sure to take a peek at the adorable Halloween cardz from the 7KCF DT  right HERE.   I hope you will join us for this fun challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!

LaLa Land & House Mouse ~ Monday!

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a great weekend and are enjoying the gorgeous fall colors – it seems to have reached the peak here in Wisconsin.   I really hate to think what  comes after this!  blech.

We’ve got a new challenge for you today at LaLa Land Crafts Halloween.   Always a fun theme with these cuties.    This is Buccaneer Marci, isn’t she the cutest?!

The papers are from MME ~ Haunted Harlequin.  I always love using papers that are printed on the brown kraft paper.   She’s been colored with Copics, but I did use a white prisma pencil for her shirt and a Pilot gold marker for her earings, belt and buttons.

 Be sure to pop over to the LaLa Land Crafts blog and take a peek at the awesome cards from the DT, you won’t be disappointed.

. . . AND, Happy House Mouse Monday!

Our challenge today at the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog is a color challenge: Black, Orange, Yellow,

(This allows those of us who celebrate Halloween to make Halloween
cards, and those that don’t celebrate Halloween to do something else.)

This cutie is COUNT MOUSE a/k/a Maxwell Mouse!    Scary guy, huh?  🙂

Be sure to pop over to the House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge blog to take a peek at the adorable little mice in their Halloween colors.
