This Could Be "Double Trouble"


I recently received new House Mouse stamps and this one was perfect for their current challenge of "Double Trouble". This little guy is so excited with the big sparkly teeth he has created that you know he has great plans for Halloween - and his buddy is thinking he may want some too! Those two will be planning some trouble, no doubt of that! The colored image is outlined in marker, cut out and glued to the wonderful patterned Halloween paper, which is also layered on black cardstock. I have applied Stickles to the paper he used to cut out his teeth (and the teeth) to make them sparkly and also to the background paper in areas that did not have it. There are so many great entries at as well as the DP inspiration so be sure to visit! I hope that you enjoyed my card today - Halloween is on the way!

I just realized that today is Thursday already which means that I missed my WOYW? Wednesday entry yesterday, but I have been ill and got my days mixed up this week. I have had such ear/neck pain and all Tuesday night it was very bad so yesterday I was worked into a clinic appointment. I have an inflamed carotid artery on my left side and that is causing great pain in my ear/neck and painful to move my head. When I went out to start the car to pick up my son Jim to go with me, my car battery was dead and had to call my friend Kris who bless her, came over right away to drive us so I didn't miss my appointment. Today I go to the dentist as I broke off a tooth so this has been quite a week. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today! We are to have thunderstorms and rain over the next few days here in this part of WI - we have our yearly community celebration this weekend so iffy for the events, craft sale in the park and parade. Hoping for the best. Wishing you a good day today!

Your card is another great entry. Great idea for the Stickles. I agree, they are definitely in for some "trouble". Thanks for playing along with us at House Mouse this week. Best of Luck to you.

He looks really scarry. You have such patience at cutting out and layering. I posted your Sea glass off to you yesterday by Airmail. Hugs Mrs A.

Barbara, this halloween card is just delightful. Scary little teeth there. Love the colors too. Thnaks for joining the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. Nicely done. Sounds like you have had some double trouble of your own, ear/neck and tooth. Hope all is sorted for you soon and your feeling much better quickly.
