A Mouse in Moose Costume


This week's HM challenge is a Halloween theme, represented either by the image itself or the color scheme. Since I've already posted my two Halloween HM images, I decided to go with the color idea. The only problem is that this is a moose, not a mouse. (Shhhhh......) I thought about trying to see if anyone would notice, but alas, I'm afraid you would. :) Then, I thought that this could be Amanda in her Tu-tu, disguised as a moose, but again, I'm sure you wouldn't buy that either. The funny thing is that this idea came to mind with the intent of using Amanda in her tu-tu. However, I just received my order of Rileys and I simply grabbed Sophie instead of Amanda. Since I worked hard on my ballerina, be it moose or mouse, I am posting it anyway, at least to my blog. I'll have to decide if the HM DT will ban me from future participation if I post this to the HM challenge. I would still like to use Amanda, but I have now used my ballet-slipper charm with Sophie. Oh the woes of having "stampers confusion." I need to write Dear Paperlicious for help. I want to give this to my granddaughter for Halloween. She's been asking grandma for ballet slippers, so this is a start. My DP is Basic Grey's Ambrosia. Yellow CS and ribbon are PTI. Thank you for looking and I'll really work on my "animal confusion."

I'm so glad I just took a quick break from my typing to come over and see your blog. I enjoyed seeing this darling card you made. Very much a treat for the eyes. Your card night cards area also fabulous. I like the image from the SU holiday mini. I'm looking forward to ordering out of the mini catalog.
