My Saturday Spotlight

Hi everyone! Well look, since I didn't post yesterday you get TWO posts from me today! If you haven't seen my earlier post, be sure to scroll down!

I just had to play along with Vicki's brand new Saturday Spotlight Challenge where the first challenge is to make a Halloween using non Halloween stamps. What fun!

My first card uses a well loved Halloween phrase that I printed out with my computer in a Chiller font. I paired it up with some baby feet stamps by PSX.

I added some orange rain dots in the corners and you've got a super fast Halloween card!

I didn't stop there though, I had another idea I wanted to do! This time I used the same font and the Wit's End image from Squigglefly to make this

Here's the inside with a stamped candy corn border.



Here's the copics I used to color the lady




This was a fun challenge. It makes you look at your images differently! I urge you to play along!

Both cards made me giggle! First as soon as I saw those "feet" I knew where you were headed ... well done! Then I saw your second creation and cracked up at the image itself ... very cute ... Love it!! Thanks so much for joining us at Saturday Spotlight ... I look forward to seeing more of your creations in the upcoming weeks!! WELL DONE!!

I love both cards but the "smell my feet" had me falling off my chair. I know I am going to hear that for the next few weeks from my first graders. That is just too cute.
Thanks for the info on the digi stamps. I did buy a couple the other day and I want to do the color challenge this weekend if I get to it.
