Halloween is just Around the Corner!!!

Hello everyone and happy Monday!!! I made these Halloween cards yesterday before my DH returned from his fishing trip. George and his fishing partner actually won a little money...Whoohoo!! Enough to pay for all the fishing stuff they bought to get ready for the tournament...LOL!!! Anyway....I used the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges C4C55 to create this fun little Halloween card. The adorable Rubbernecker Halloween Stamp called Dragon Boy was colored with copics and the papers are from Memory Box's Spooky dp. Candy dots, ribbon, and the scalloped border finish it off.
Susan (Rainy) challenged us with a sketch challenge on her blog. I just had to make another Halloween card since I send them to all my Grandchildren. The adorable Lockhart stamp was colored with copics and the papers are from Stampin Up! and My Minds Eye. Sewing was done around the background edges and the bats are felt stickers. Pearls and ribbon are the finishing details.

The last Halloween card features this weeks sketch from the Our Craft Lounge Blog. The super cute image from OCL's Ghostly Greetings set was colored with copics and the little pumpkin from the same set was popped up on the ribbon. Other details include the papers from Memory Box's Spooky collection, pearls, scalloped border (EK Success punch), ribbon, and a punched bat (Martha Stewart Punch).


Don't be shocked but I actually decorated the inside a little!! I usually don't do that till I send the card out so now it's already to go!!
Thanks for visiting today....have a wonderful start to your week!!!
