Witchy, Witchy.

Hi everyone. I hope that you all had as pleasant a summer as I have. It has been a long time since we have had such beautiful weather. We really got to enjoy our back yard this year, with many BBQ evenings and fires in the fire pit. You just can't ask for anything better.

Well, I have a couple of cards for you today. The first one was so fun to make. It was for my DH birthday. We are a cat and dog house and all the animals are his (at least he feeds and cleans them !! LOL !!). So that is the reason for the animal card. Simple but fun. Stamping directly on the checked background paper was really a fun thing to do. I see so many cards on SCS that do this and I never remember to try it. This time I did and I'm hooked. There is nothing out there that says you can't enhance designer paper, is there? :)

The second card is my favorite witch. I have had her for about 4 years and every year I have to bring her back to life. I love the face and expression that she has. She is fun and not scary so you don't have to worry about who you give it to. She is pretty much age appropriate for anyone. And this year I really had to glitz her up a bit. Stickles on her hat and star tassel and a strip of matallic star paper, which was a scrap from last year. Yes it is that time of year again. I have a friend that loves Halloween so much that she celebrates the whole month of October !! It is a fun holiday where you can really let your imagination "fly" !!

I'll have some other creations for you shortly. I'm in the middle of some commission work and I'm liking what is coming out of my head !! LOL !! I sure hope that all of you do to.

Have a great rest of the week.

I love the effect of stamping directly on the DP! I'll have to try it sometime.

The witch is adorable and you're right, it's good for just about anyone. Love all the sparkle!
