So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Witch's Brew

This is a Halloween card created for 2 challenges. One is For Fun Challenge which was to create a Halloween card with NO orange! The other Challenge is for Cute Card Thursday which is to use a transparent part. Here is the card I made.

I used GKD green grass cs, some dp from my Halloween stash, Penny Black stamps, Papertrey jar stamps and diecut. I stamped the inside of the jar on the acetate paper and then layered it behind the front of the card which I had cut out with the diecut of the jar. I covered the back of the front of the card with green and also cut some of the acetate so that it would slip back up to the top of the jar.  I used Stazon black ink on the acetate and it didn't smear!! Then colored with Copic markers and a gold pen. I used Labels 8 Spellbinders die to cut out the jar label and added some ribbon, embellishments, and flower. Corner punch is a cloud punch. I used the Penny Black stamp on the inside. Don't know if you can see the acetate very well...but it is there!

It was a fun challenge...but very putzy!!! Don't think I'd make too many of these!! BUT Happy Halloween!!!
