Halloween Trio

Hi everyone! I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I did. We had the most lovely weather! I didn't get as much house cleaning done as I should have, but I was struck with the crafting bug and I had so much fun playing that housework was put on the back burner.

Today I have three Halloween cards to share with you! This first one was done for a sketch challenge on Card Patterns. I flipped the sketch around.

The cute little witch is one that Inger Harding drew for Squigglefly. It's called Little Witch Girl. Isn't she sweet? I colored with Copic markers and used some of this wonderful spiderweb embossed vellum that I bought a long time ago at a specialty paper shop in Kansas City. I only have a little of it left and thought this image would go perfectly with it! Isn't it cool paper?

My next card is a Funky Spider that Cheryl Alger drew for Squigglefly.

I love the goofy smile on this guy's face! The sentiment is a stamp from Micheal's dollar spot and I stamped and embossed it. I still may add googly eyes to this fellow.

Last but not least is a fun card using one of Squigglefly's newest releases from Revi Debi Paat called Happy Owl-oween.

It's colored with Copic markers and chalk. The sentiment is a freebie you can grab at any of Squigglefly's groups. See my sidebar for links to the groups.

I have a wonderful card to share with you today. Take a look at the card that Dawn Burnworth made HERE. Be sure to check out the newest Squigglefly challenge on their blog, and there's still time to join in the Sketch Challenge with a twist! The prize package is now up to two prizes! Come on and enter so I have to add something else to the prize - I've got some good stuff here just waiting to be added!

Enjoy your Monday, and thanks for stopping by to see me this morning!

WOW, GF! You almost ODed on creativity this weekend! HOLY COW...these are AMAZING! You KNOW how much I love cool paper, and that spiderweb tops them all! What a PERFECT background for this lil cutie! "Little Witch Girl" is the most precious witch ever, and your coloring/shading is AWESOME! The expression on Cheryl's spider is priceless...what an imagination she has! You chose the perfect DP for him too...sooo fun! And what a 'hoot' Mr Owloween is...sorry couldn't resist! :) What a charmer he is and you did a fantastic job on his coloring as well! This background is fabulous too! Yep, you had one amazingly productive weekend...wish I could say the same for me!
