Who doesn’t love the fun of Halloween? Fluffles sure loves it, even if this little mousie did scare him pretty badly from behind with his mouse “boo!” This image was quick and fun to color and so easy to pair up with some fun Halloween designer paper and coordinating “eyes” ribbon. Cindy also challenged us to use sewing or faux stitching in our design.

Next up is my weekly CCEE challenge card.
In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.....
In honor of Columbus discovering America, Shirley challenged the CCEE Stampers to make a card with a ship, ocean, Indians or anything that relates to this day. I also made this card for one of the Hope You Can Cling To challenges over at Splitcoaststampers for the entire month of October as a card drive to benefit those affected by breast cancer. Yesterday's challenge was to have at least one heart in your design.
I pulled out a much-loved, but long-neglected Stampin' Up set called Boatloads of Love for my Friend-ship card today. I watercolored everything except the sky, which I sponged. The base card and ribbon are navy blue, although they appear to be black in my photo.
Here's a close-up of the multi-layering I did on the heart and the puffs of steam from the boat.
