Cheery Lynn Designs Halloween Themed Challenge

10-13-16-1

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Halloween themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.10-13-16-2

I love the wonderful subtle texture you get by using the Large Parallel Rectangular Pierce Plate.  I use it quite a bit when a white background is just too plain.

My sentiment was cut in black and orange and layered to create the shadow effect.  I cut my pumpkins in orange, then added brown stems and backed them with yellow for a jack-o-lantern look.  I have some grass behind them.  My sentiment is up on foam tape and I shaped the bat wings a bit before adding the bats.10-13-16-3I added the boo sentiment and a scary ghost to the inside of my card.10-13-16-4

Christmas Isn’t Just a Day…

Hi friends.  It’s October, and you know what that means, right?  It means that if you are hand making your holiday cards, you need to get started!!  Just imagine how nice it would be to sit and relax with a cup of hot chocolate and some yummy cookies in the second week of December knowing all your cards are done and mailed.  Such a fantastic dream…. but it really could happen if you get going now!
