Are you tired of Halloween yet?
I'm going to try to switch to some more fall themed cards tomorrow - I'm sure Halloween is getting old already. I just need to start working on my Halloween cards since the time is starting to approach. I need to really work on my basic "stock" of cards, too - I would like to have a bunch of Thank you - anniversary, birthday, etc. on hand, so I can just pull a card out of stock when I need one. Usually by the time I realize there is an event, I just don't have the free time to sit down and create a new card.
On to my card today - I picked up some new stamps at Joanns yesterday (it was my birthday & went there to spend some of my birthday money - unfortunately all I bought was a set of halloween stamps and a scrapbook). So these stamps are by Heidi Grace - I thought they were cute. There are some other images with the set I didn't use yet - but I'm sure I will, so I'm not posting them all just yet! I used my basic memento black ink and got the card layout inspiration from Unscripted Sketches (see my sidebar for the link). I used my Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch on the bottom with green glitter paper for the "goo". It's so creepy!!! I kept the inside pretty basic - I was trying to use up an odd-sized piece of orange CS and I used a corner punch on the top, and stamped with the spiderweb & small spider stamp from my set to decorate it. I couldn't resist the jeepers creepers saying - esp. since spiders are just plain creepy (we get these giant daddy longlegs spiders here that are just creepy, so it reminded me of that).
Well, I hope you enjoy your Friday & thanks for reading!
