Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!



Hello, Over at The Paper Players and being it’s the beginning of October the theme we have for you today is Spooky.

I have close to zero Halloween stamps so I actually “had” to purchase something for this challenge. LOL I grabbed the only thing I could find when I was at a local store a few weeks ago. The set is not my style, but I did have fun creating this card.

I am also linking up over at Festive Friday where you have to pick at least three from their challenge list. I chose- Circle, Green, and Tree.

I was also introduced to a challenge that I had not heard of before. It’s Halloween all year long. Wait till you hear the title….Two Old bat’s Challenge! LOL Darlene was nice enough to message me about it so I decided to play along. You can use the mood board or you can just make a Halloween project. Thanks Darlene for the message! You are crazy busy!

Card Details: Stamp set is from Tim Holtz and I sponged the moon. I also used some white pencil to see if I could cast shadows on the trees. My favorite part is the sentiment. The stars are sponged with white paint.
