Hey Pumpkin...


Halloween blog here!!!

     Hello everyone,  
      I hope that you are all enjoying my Halloween cards.   As most of you already know I am not Copic Certified, I just really love to color and make cards.  It is my way of relaxing after work or on the weekends.      I hope that your week is going well so far and that you all had a great Monday.  I am going to try and make this short as I am tired from a busy work day and an early morning tomorrow as well. 
     So, let's get right to my card.   I have to admit that so far this card is one of my FAVORITES!  You all know that I just love the Creeper Crew stamps from The Greeting Farm and this little 'Sweet and Toxic' is one of my faves.  So with her little skull hairpins all ready to go she just  had to make an appearance on one of my Halloween cards. :O)    I felt that she needed to have red hair as it just kind of goes with the whole Halloween theme.  (All redheads, please don't be offended.  I have a redheaded Sister, Sister-in-law, two nephews and a Great Niece-in-law)  Oh no, I am surrounded!!!  lol...
     Moving on... My card came to be because of this awesome new 6x6 paper pad from Graphic45  that I purchased and really wanted to make a card with.  I thought that 'Sweet & Toxic' really went with the papers,  so I  grabbed an oldy but a goody from BasicGrey, the Graphic45 paper pad and Sweet & Toxic.  Threw then all together and voila.... Instant Halloween card! 
     Ok guys, that's it for me today.  I hope you all have a wonderful evening.  I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

I forgot to mention that I also made this card to enter it into The Greeting Farm's FFF challenge of paper piecing.  I paper pieced her hairpins and her dress,  I love how they turned out and how it allowed me the ability to make those skulls really shine.  Thanks for stopping by.

I took all of these pictures without a flash.  I am hoping that will help with keeping
the colors more true. Let me know what you think.  I don't want my cards to look dark.
Thanks for the input.
