Too Cute to Spook!

Hi, and welcome!

Don't know about your day, but mine has been lovely.......spent the morning with Daughters 1 and 3, and one 11 month old, one 4 year old, two six years old, and two 8 years old.......trawling the local shops for Halloween fripperies (love that word....fripperies), and some Christmas stocking fillers......last day of the half-term break, and the decibel level in the shops was way off the scale......mostly from my tribe....haaaaa!  Loved every minute of it, even though Millie, my 11 month old grandbaby, was soooo tired.....and when Millie is tired, everybody knows about it .........

'Twas lots of fun, but couldn't wait to get back home, and spend a little time in my craft room.....all that Halloween spooky stuff, in the shops, really got me ol' Mr. Mojo wantin' to play....woohooooo!

Here' s the of the fastest cards I've ever made........20 minutes, start to finish....yaaaaay!!

Cute, eh?  I think so, anyway....heehee........
Used some purple pearlescent as the background, then layered stripey Echo Park paper which I edged with orange ink..........I used a freebie digi (help me out...where did I filch it from?) all coloured up with Promarkers.....told ya it was quick, so I just tore and inked the edges of the paper layers..........

Used my new silver paint  pen on his neck bolts...ouch!.......and just wait 'til I get goin' with the gold one....haaaaa!

Bought this green sparkly ribbon for Christmas cards, but liked it on here, too.........

I cut the purple paper using an old Fiskar's template....stuck some black alphas on a scrap of white card, coloured in the o's and stuck two silver beads on.....ok, they were originally silver, but licked 'em over with a black Sharpie.....haaaaa!

Finished off with two torn and inked circles, scrunched up a bit, and topped with a purple button and a piece of the glittery ribbon.....can't believe it was soooo quick to do.........hope ya like!!
