Hello Ghoulfriend!

     Alright guys,  I have to be honest here.  I am NOT a Halloween person.  We don't do Halloween but it's that time of year so pretty much every designer and DT is going to be doing spooky scary Halloweeny stuff.  In this case the Catered Crop has a "Halloween Screams" challenge going on, but Linda has also opened the challenge to fall themed projects for those who don't do Halloween.  Our sponsor is Tiddly Inks.  LOVE their images.  We were lucky enough to be able to use a TI image on our projects this go around and I chose Gossmere.  She's not really scary unless you notice she has a skull on the end of her wand.  LOL  I have zilcho Halloween papers in my stash but was lucky enough to find these wonderful freebie digital papers over at Bearly Mine Designs.  Donna has several freebies you can nab over there for all sorts of themes.  I dyed some more cheesecloth with alcohol ink for this project.  One of my readers told me they found pre-dyed stuff at the Dollar Tree.  Cool!
     I spent about three hours on the computer this morning trying to catch up with all of you.  LOL  I'm finally up to speed and hope to be able to stay on top of things.  Got a list a mile long of DT projects I have to get done so I'm keeping my fingers crossed I won't get behind again.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine--Halloween
Clear It Out--anything goes using orange, purple, or black)
Party Time Tuesdays--halloween
Ribbon Carousel--Halloween spirit
Hooked on Craft--Halloween
Make It Monday--anything goes

     Hope you're having a fantastic day!

  11. I think you've made a wonderful Halloween card! You've done SO well,I bet it was a challenge as you didn't have any Halloween stuff in your stash to begin with. I love the image, so cool, also for other occasions. And the colors of your papers and texture from cheese cloth and ribbon - it all looks great! I spotted your card on MIM.

  27. You could have fooled me chica, this ghoulish halloweeny card is adorable!! Can you say that about Halloween cards? Ah well, I just did. She's darling and I lurve the inventive ways you come through shining on this themed card, even without having elements on hand. That's true creative genius!!
    So glad you're caught up, LOL..I'm not! I could spend all day on other people's blogs...hmmm, maybe therein is the problem!
    Fantastic card H and I hope you have a very fun and productive weekend.
