Candy Corn Wishes

Howdy Stampers,

Halloween is approaching so quickly.  It has kind of caught me off guard.  It is one of my favorite holidays.  I don't usually need a reason to be goofy.  Check out the photo of recent trip to Target. They have so much fun stuff to play with.  :)    Who doesn't like to dress up?   What are you going to be for Halloween?  Do you have a favorite Halloween costume?

I wanted to get in the spirit of Halloween.  I love the House Mouse stamps.  This image of the Mice in Candy Corn Costumes was released in a mini version many years ago.  The smart people at Stampendous rereleased it in a full size version.  Not only that, but they made them foam mounted.  What a perfect idea!!!  

Just a warning, they were a little overzealous with the foam.  The foam is really sticky.  It made a mess of my clear block.  I tried a few things, but in the end I ended up remounting it on my own foam.  It works perfectly now.  I hope they get the manufacturing process perfected soon. 

Here is my card inspired by the samples released by the company.
