Happy Haunting!!

Hey there crafty folks!

I have yet again made a Halloween card! Hopefully you are not tired of them yet because I still need to make at least 7 more and I really like trying to make them all different!  🙂 This card was super easy because the DSP did most of the work for me.


That fun background paper is part of the Motley Monsters DSP from Stampin’ Up. With that pretty background all I had to do was stamp some Jack-o-Lanterns from the Fall Fest Set and some leaves to go with it. Then I added a sentiment from the Ghoulish Greetings set and it was done.

I am entering this card over at Stampin’ Up! only Challenge Blog as their theme this week is Autumn Colors!

Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday and I will be back with more fun Halloween cards soon!

A Witchy Halloween Card

Happy Monday!

I always try to start out on the positive side on Mondays but sometimes it can be hard to do.  Today was no exception as I have had numerous technical difficulties in getting this blog posted.  Happily it finally came together and I can share my fun new Halloween card with you!

I made this card for my second card swap in the past week.  The goal was to make something fall themed and I still have many more Halloween cards to make so my decision was made.

I really love the puny Sentiment from the Tee Hee Hee Stamp set. I also enjoyed getting to use my new Blendabilities Markers on the Witch from the Freaky Friends stamp set. I do hope that my fellow stampers like it, and I can’t wait to see what creations I receive from them.

I also decided to add a little something to the inside:

Every girl needs to have a pair of shoes, right? 🙂

Hope you have a great Monday with minimal “Technical Difficulties” 😉
