     Good morning all. 
It is finally Saturday and I for one am very very happy for that.  It has been a long week that made it most impossible to post anything for you guys to see.  Ok, now with my grumping out of the way I do have yet another Halloween Card to share today.  This card idea has been in my head all week, but first I had to find the 'PERFECT' Jar to use.  I knew that my friend Amy had made a wonderful jar for her Sweet November Stamps, but when I headed over to CC Designs I could not find it.  Thanks to Amy's help I was able to click on the link she sent me.  I was really happy to buy this in digi form as I didn't know exactly how big I wanted  it to be.  This allowed me to play around a little more with my options as well.   Thanks ever so much Amy, you are a life saver. 
       I really thought it would be fun to make a card that had a jar full of eyeballs in it.  So I picked up a pack of googly eyes and put some Copic ink on just a few of them to make them stand out just a little more from all of the rest of the eyes that I knew I was going to put in there.   Once I colored the mason jar all I had to do was add in all my eyeballs and "TaDa!"  Jar full of Eyeballs just sitting on the counter.  :O)  Sorry the idea just makes me smile.   It was so much fun to make.  I hope that my idea comes across like I could see it in my mind.  I didn't have a die to cut out my jar, but it was super easy to trace around my jar and do it the old fashion way.  :O)  lol..
     Well guys, I am going to run. Still in the mood to make a few more Halloween cards.  I am a little mad at myself at the moment  because a few years ago when I first got into blogging and Copic coloring I had purchased a Halloween stamp set from  All that Scraps now (CC Designs)  and for some reason I can  I can not find them.  They has just vanished!!!  GGrrrrr.. If you hear a loud noise it isn't a volcano erupting or a fireworks exploding, it will just be me going crazy looking for them. 
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

Totally out of my Licorice Twist black Bazzill  CS and I had to use Smokey Shadow from PTI. 
Not my favorite, but didn't want to use orange or purple for this card.  :O(

M&Ms picked out the sentiment.  I wanted it to read..."I always feel like somebodies watching me"
Do you have that song in your head now?  I do!  lol
