Our family has an eeeky squeaky LOL Halloween story that not all of us think is funny. Years ago when our oldest son lived in a very posh condo, he kept complaining about a possible ghost in the unit because things kept moving around mysteriously. In the end, because most of the movement involved food, he set a trap and he caught a mouse. (I think it was a RAT, but mouse sounds cuter.) We still laugh about the incident (except our son who still is insists that it was a mouse), so I decided to kid him a little more I would make a Halloween card for him.
I started with the Dandelion Design Halloween mouse set because the character is so cute and happy running around with the candy. I stamped the images and words on the inside of the card (made from Marker pen paper available at Ben Franklin Crafts) and colored it with Copic pens (also from BFC). I added some candy corn stickers and Stickles. After the Stickles gel was dry, I smudged on some Ranger Distress Ink (marigold) and copper Tsukineko spray. For the front of the card I cut out a small section of a cellophane treat bag I purchased from the Celebrations store, tied it with a ribbon, and glued it down. I adhered some candy corn (some under the bag) and rat (Martha Stewart) stickers from BFC. Then I smudged the background like I did on the inside of the card. Finally, I finished the card front with a hand-drawn squiggly line border. Do you think my son will find it humorous? Maybe not....LOL!
