Spooky Halloween and Happy Hop WINNER!!

Happy Thursday, everyone!! I hope you are having a great week!! I have a winner to announce from the Happy Hop, but first, I have a card to enter into a few challenges :)


I used the Crafty Friends sketch (see below) for this Halloween card. All of the papers are from Me and My Big Ideas Spiders and Bats Mambi Stack.


my Zutter Distress-It-All!! It was used on all the edges, then they were inked with Black Soot Distress Ink...I thought it made the edges look like they had been burned. The orange paper is a Spellbinders Grand Rectangle. The tag is a Spellbinders Tags and Flags die, the edges inked with Black Soot. The skeleton is from Happy Hauntings, lightly inked with Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap for an aged look. The stitching is by hand because I wanted it thicker than my sewing machine could stitch. The adorable crystal spider and web are from my sweet friend Sharon of Mee Mee's Creations. I won her awesome blog candy giveaway...thanks again, Sharon!! The spider reflected the light but I thought it looked cool :) The banners are Spellbinders Nested Pennant dies. "Spooky" and the bats are from K Andrew Designs Fall-O-Ween stamp set:

  1. Crafty Friends #6 - Use Sketch  (see below)
  2. Little Scrap Pieces - Halloween

  4. Sunday Funday - Linky Party

  28. My sweetest friend, you have once again excelled at creating a scene. :o) A spooky one at that! I love the sentiment arrangements, the perfect sparkles, enlightened spider, and of COURSE the distress-it-all! It looks amazing! It indeed looks burnt to a crisp and I love that it gives a slightly bigger peek at the neon green background. Such spectacular layers, too. You are so super spiffy. :o) I hope you have a beautiful and sparkly Friday! Thank you for always making me smile. :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
