Happy Halloween

Last night Scott and the kids carved and decorated pumpkins.   I was making Scott some Chocolate Chip Cookies for his birthday and completely forgot to take any pictures.  Oops.   Perhaps I will remember to take pictures of the finished pumpkins today.

Have you seen Stampin' UP!'s stamp set called Button Buddies?  If not here it is:

Aren't they cute?  I wanted to make this card with the pumpkin, but I don't have this stamp set.  :(  Instead I used what I had and I like what I came up with. 


If you saw yesterday's post then you might recognize the Mojo Monday sketch I used again.  What can I say?  I'm a sucker for good sketches, and this square one just seemed to fit. 



There are a few things I changed though, including the orientation of the card.  Instead of opening at the bottom this card opens at the side. The inside is decorated too.


I made my own background paper by stamping the swirl from Everything Eleanor in Soft Suede ink, stamping off on some scratch paper first.  I did the same for the little boo tag.  The front panel is embossed and sponged.  Actually all the pieces ended up getting sponged. 


This was a quick, fun card to make and I've already begun some modifications to make it perfect for Thanksgiving.  (or a fall thank you card)

Come back later today to see my "scary" Halloween post of my craft room.  The before pictures are pretty spooky to me.  LOL

Creative Blessings,
Heather North
