Oh boy - once again I have not posted in 3 weeks! Unfortunately I have been sick for most of that time and after a long Doctor's appointment and some tests it turns out it may be my thyroid that is causing some of the fatigue and other issues I have been dealing with. I will know more when results from some of the tests that were run yesterday come back. Yeah!!! I can't wait to begin to feel better!!!!
Anyway I finally made a card today and played with lots of Halloween items that I pulled out of my stash over the past couple days and placed in a pile on my crafting desk. I am going to enter it into 2 challenges - the black and orange challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs and the Make it Monday challenge over at Nichole Heady's blog for Papertrey Ink.
Here is the card that I made:
Halloween Treats and Sweets; Mr. Bones; and Spooky Sweets II.
The adorable witch and pumpkin girls as well as the bat, candy corn and small jack-o-lantern are from a cute set of rubber stamps that I picked up at Michael's by Recollections. Aren't they cute?!?
spider web doily die from Cheery Lynn Designs. I also used the Anastasia Border die B136 from Cheery Lynn Designs along the bottom of my card (cut out of black cardstock) to help ground the images.
The patterned paper is from the "October 31st" line from Fancy Pants Design which I think is a collection from last year? I edged the paper with my Martha Stewart web border punch.
I tried my hand at coloring with copics again but just a reminder that I am a total amateur and do NOT know what I am doing. But regardless I always have fun doing it which is what crafting is all about for me - a way to relax and feel happy!
Here are some links to the two challenges I entered this card in: !
Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge #49 - Black and Orange
Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday #86: The Inside Edition
I hope you decide to play along with me!
