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.

Happy Halloween! For Fun Challenge

This is for the For Fun Challenges...October 26..Anything Goes - Halloween Style. The challenge runs Wednesday, October 26 thru Tuesday, November 1.  (Here is the website)

The Sponsor is Rick St. Dennis  and the prize is a digital sheet of Halloween Images. He has some really nifty looking images and really makes you think OUTSIDE the box!

I used 3 images...1 on the front and 2 on the inside.  The witch I colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens and gave her LOTS of colors! Then cut her out with Spellbinders Labels 17. The cs was GKD black onyx and the dp was Martha Stewart's Halloween. It was the perfect background for some SPOOKY looks. I added some stickers, embellishments, pearls and a little ribbon. The corners were punched with Martha Stewart's spider web corner punch.

The inside used Labels 17 to cut out the image and Labels 3 to cut out the sentiment. All of the backgrounds were sponged with Clearly Better Silver Ink and Brilliance Copper ink to add a "spooky" look!

And I do hope you have a mystically magical Halloween! Enjoy the adventures of ghosts, goblins, witches and look for the black cat crossing the road! And maybe your creation will be a treat and win you some goodies! Good luck!

Witches, Spiders, Bats and Cats!

Happy Halloween!


  1. Great cards. Like how you sponged the back ground to give it a more grungy feeling. So glad you got to play with us this month.
