That Spooky Night






I  may be gone away from my blog again for several days after today. Going to a ball game Saturday and my sis is coming for a visit on Sunday and we will have a lot to. Did I mention we have a super scrapbook store that we love to visit? Anyone want to send a donation for our shopping trip?  LOL Yes, Michael's, Jo Ann Stores, and Hobby Lobby will be visited, too. Hey, we can even go online for crafties.  Fun, fun, fun!!!

I wanted and needed to make a Halloween card. I spent so much time with this card. There are several digital images on this card and also several wooden stamp images. I really think it is so cute in real life. I made it larger than usual (5 x7) to fit it all the items I used.


This card is entered into the Splitcoaststampers QFTD182. This is the gorgeous card I was supposed to case. It belongs to Tina aka GardenDiva. Well, it barely resembles hers. Ugh! Does my card look as if I got carried away? YES!!

And, another card for Pixie's Crafty Workshop #90---I used snippets getting my characters made

I'm also sending my card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-- use a product that is available in the Simon Says Stamp Store and state what you used. I used the Stampendous Stamp Give Candy Blockart.  I also used their Memento dew drops ink/Girls Night Out-Tuxedo Black and Arizona Canyons-Desert Sand. SSS is also having a STAMPtember blog hop going on.

Recipe:
Stamps-Digital images/Brickworks, Corner Bricks, Large and Small Brick Crack, Street Curb, Mummy and spider web unknown--probably picked up at Wal-Mart, Stampendous Blockart Give Candy (Dracula), Sentiment is Studiog 2011 Janet Dunn (no name)
Paper-PTI white cardstock, K&CO Ghostly Greeting Die-Cut Mat Pad
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black and Desert Sand
Accessories-Copics, K&CO ghost from adhesive border/Halloween Icon

Great scene you've created. Love the webbing in the BG.

Donna Hanley said...

You went all out on this one with all those images. I have to say the bricks are just outstanding. I also love your dies, especially the orange one. Your grandchildren will all be happy with their special cards, I'm sure. I was thinking about sending you a donation, but then I thought better of that. I don't want to be accused of contributing to your "habit", you understand don't you??? LOL Enjoy your time with your "partner in crime".

What a wonderful Halloween card! You know that for Halloween more is more! LOL, wish I could send a donation to your shopping trip. What you buy will probably cost me some money. LOL, Internet shopping is dangerous! Have fun!

This is darling and I adore all the elements you used on it! Your little ghost in the corner is such a cutie! Fun card!

Oh I know somebody besides myself who will love this card! So much to enjoy on this with so very much detail. Carried away? No, don't think so...but there's a lot to see. Loved your spidey border background frane, and the scalloped mat. Your little creatures are too scary...so much dimension as well. I like how you combined the digi with the wood stamps. A new thought to Moi. Enjoy your holiday and don't buy anything I wouldn't like! LOL

Cathy said...

Too cute to spook! I hope you enjoyed your visit with your sister. Wish I could tag along on the shopping sprees you'll be doing. Hey, did I hear that Hobby Lobby may close its doors? Or is that just a rumor spread on the internet?

Ajascha said...

Hallo Brenda,
eine schnuckelige schaurige Karte. Die Ränder gefallen mir sehr gut, so eine Stanze habe ich noch nie gesehen, wirklich schön.
♥ Grüße, Anja
