Spooky Going's On Around Here!

Hello, and welcome!

Another Friday nearer to CHRISTMAS......WOOHOO!

Sorry, just needed to get that out of my system......ahemmm.....

Card Crafter's Circle are actually having a 
theme for the challenge, this week.......I can't understand why the team won't just let me make a Christmas card every week...hahaaa!

I have to say, though, that I really enjoyed making my themed card....even if it wasn't Christmas.....because the gorgeous digi images that I got to play with were delightful!
Our sponsor is
and our randomly drawn winner will receive their choice of Two Sets of Images from the store!
And there's a special offer of 50% off everything at the don't miss out on some lovely stamps!

Here's my card.......I used the fabulous Trick or Treat Houses Combo.....

I decided to go with an easel card for this one, so that I could use as many of the stamps in the set as possible.....there are actually a lot than I managed to fit on.....such good value!  The lovely paper was a digi it!......and the green background is from my stash.......

The colours are all  much brighter than this terrible photo would have you believe....phhwwtt!......I chose to work with the pre-coloured stamps. I printed and cut out each stamp, then put them through my Stampin' Up Trellis embossing folder, to add some texture....

I punched a circle of white card and coloured it to match the purple in the stamps, and also ran it through the embossing folder.....added a freebie sentiment and a button with ribbon tied through.......I wish those colours didn't look so flippin' washed out...that green card is much deeper green.......

Would this little fella spook ya?  He was one of a number of Halloween goodies that I won at Quixotic Paperie ....thanks again, Elaine!  

This was a really fun card to make....I love these stamps!

Hop over to the challenge blog to see all the great inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, then make a little something to enter into the fun....don't forget that great prize that's up for grabs!
