Have a Mice Halloween!

Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog! I want to show you a Halloween card I made. These mice are sooooo cute dressed up in their candy corn costumes!

I had just bought spider embellishments, so I drew a web in the corner of the card and a line for the spider to hang from. I also used green google eyes on the spider. Did you know that spiders' eyes show up like green pin points when a light is shown on them at night? When my oldest son was about 10 years he told this to me because he had learned it in scouts. So one summer night we went outside with flashlights held up to our foreheads and saw all the little pin lights in the grass and bushes. ( Now you can imagine how we looked to anyone that passed by and at that time we lived by a busy road! ) You would not believe the hundreds of little eyes we saw!!!! It can be rather creepy to know how many spiders are in your yard!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a very mice day!
