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.

Bugs and Hisses to You!

I decided to do Halloween today! This is for 2 challenges...one is Outlines Monday Challenge 12 -- Lovely with Lace (yes..I did Halloween!!) This is their website.  http://outlineswithkathy.blogspot.com/ And the other challenge is for Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge..Anything Goes as long as it isn't the standard A2 card. This is their website. http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com/search/label/Speedy's%20Friends%20Challenge

So...I started out with a 5x7 card and used GKD Wild Lilac cs with Moxxie dp. The stamps were Outlines 1113B Bugs and Hisses To You, H907 Sparkle Happy Haunting and G1102 Spooky Kitty. I stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Smooch and a couple of Copics and a clear glitter pen by Sakura in spots. The background was sponged with Lulu Lavender Memento and Pear Tart Memento.
I added some PURPLE lace, a purple ribbon and some spiders and ghosts on the front. On the inside added LOTS of bling and ghosts and a bat! I cut out with die cut Labels 17 and 15. Happy Haunting!
