31 Days of Halloween - Day 27

It's day 27 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween blog Hop.  Please visit the Smeared and Smudged blog for the daily clues and all the rules to  qualify for prizes and to find out about the daily winners.

I have used Calypso from Smeared Ink. Many years ago I had a pet rat, Cleo, and she was the smartest rat ever.  So I colored Calypso to look like my Cleo.  I've added a hat that I cut out from a printed designer paper because even rats love Halloween and like to get in on the fun.


This is a 4x4 fat page on a black cardstock base.  Papers are from my stash. You can't really see in the photo but I've added liquid glass to her eyes.

Next stop of the hop is Sandy.  If you get lost along the way the complete list of Wicked Bloggers can be found to the left in the side bar.

  11. All rats to me are GROSS. Some folks hate and fear spiders. For me, much like Harrison Ford, I hate and fear all rats and mice! YUCK
