Happy Halloween


Good afternoon. I hope everyone is having a good week. Mine is okay so far. I hope it continues that way.

I made this card for Mary Jo's sketch challenge and Basic Grey's challenge. It looked like a fun sketch. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. I love embossing of any kind so when I saw that Basic Grey's was to emboss it was an easy decision to join the fun.

This is my first Halloween card for 2009. I bought the Basic Grey pack and I love the papers. I couldn't wait to use them. I don't have many Halloween stamps so I was limited with what I can do right now. I glittered the spiders so they would show up better and give the card some sparkle. This is the first time I tried moving the Nesties around to get points instead of scallops on the circles. It is so easy. I love it. All you need to do is cut the scallop and then move the die so it cuts in the middle of one of the scallops and you get points. Don't you love the creative people who come up with these things!

I hope this card looks brighter to you than me. For some reason when I attached it the picture looks darker than I thought. Maybe it's just my computer or my new glasses I just picked up this AM.

Thank you for looking at my card. Let me know what you think!

This is such a great first card for the Halloween season! What a great idea with the Nesties. I may have to try that out. Thanks for playing with us at Basic Grey Challenges!
