A few Halloween cards

I colored these House Mouse images last year when I bought the stamps. I used Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I don't often use gamsol, but thought it might be fun to try it. It makes coloring very easy and quick. I always have a hard time figuring out the layout for my cards, so got out the most recent issue of Cards magazine and picked ones I liked and adapted. I've mentioned this before, but I am terrible with embellisments. I just don't know how to put them on, how much to put on or even do I use them at all? This second card is a very unconventional Halloween card. I colored the lobster more red than orange, so I had to choose paper with more reds in it. This paper is from Memory Box. It's on of the new ones. I can't remember the name, but you can find it on the Memory Box website. There are lots of new papers, and yes, I have them all. This last card is 5.5" x 5.5". I don't make many cards this size because they take extra postage and they don't fit in my "for sale" box, but I couldn't resist the paper and the layout. Isn't this mouse too cute in his cheese costume? Yeah, I think so, too. I'm tempted to send my cards to someone who does good embellishing to see what they would do with the card. You interested? I'll send them to you. There are two copies of each card. You embellish them, keep one and send me one of each back. Deal? Leave a comment.

I love them all! The cheese one made me laugh. So funny. You know I'm not the embellishing queen. How about Pam...she rocks at embellishing.
