The challenge this week over at The House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog is "chipboard". Along with a House Mouse or friend image you must use chipboard of some kind in some way on your creation. I have to admit I wasn't too happy with the challenge as I do not really get into chipboard. I don't even have too much in the way of chipboard pieces. But that's what challenges are all about right......to make us try new things! I was unable to do last week's House Mouse challenge so I didn't really want to miss this week too. I found some chipboard letters I have and the idea started. I thought of "Little Punkin" and then thought of the Halloween paper I found when cleaning my craft room last month. Before I knew it....I had created a Halloween card which is also unusual for me as I do not get into Halloween much either. I love "little punkin" though and couldn't resist him. I had several House Mouse stamps on my wish list that my kids bought me for my birthday last year. Little punkin was one of them. I had to paint the chipboard letters. I also added two chipboard photo corners which I also had to paint. I think if I can find a chipboard bat one day to add to the card I would then feel it was complete. For now though this is my entry for the challenge this week and I am also way ahead of having a Halloween card ready to mail to someone in October!
