Booooo To You!


Time for some PPA fun! Grab your crafting supplies and this great sketch - an original Moody - and play along! Imagine all the possibilities!  Head on over to Pals Paper Arts to check out some great inspiration from the fabulous design team and post your own entry.


I am so excited to share this card with you for a few reasons.  The first being that there are some great new products available in the new Holiday Mini catalog, second, this is my first Halloween card of the season, and I LOVE Halloween, and third, because I feel that I got a bit of my lost mojo back when I was making this card.

Look at this cute little tag!  This is part of the Ghoulish Googlies designer kit, which can come in a bundle with stamps!!  Can you believe it??  When you order the bundle you get 15% off, you gotta love savings, I know I do.

I partook in the bundle savings, and got the clear mount bundle (129853) which includes the above tags, bags, googly eyes, pumpkin pie bakers twine and the Googly Ghouls stamp set.  I love it!


I stamped both the little bat and the BOOOOOO in versamark then heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I love a little shine.  I used the new finishing touches edgelits to make a spooky flag.  You don't have to be perfect for Halloween cards, a bit off, is perfect!

The black mat behind the bat tag was made using the new delicate doilies sizzlits.  It has a slightly torn edge look that fit just perfectly behind my bat.


Since most Halloween cards are fun and quirky, I thought that I would tie my ribbon in knots, why just lay it flat?  Quirkiness fits perfect here!  I really loved how it turned out.  You can also see my quirky sewing, and that was not on purpose, my machine was acting up on me, but I think it will work out great on this card.

So back to the best thing of all about this card, is this fun,and quirky new Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP.  Look at the fabulous prints, colors, and textures that are included in the pack of paper.  I love it, it is one of my favorite Halloween papers.
This is a 5x5 card that will fit in a square envelope, and should mail pretty easily.  I might have to make more of them, I just love it.
Thank you for stopping by, please drop me a line and let me know what you think.  I really do enjoy reading all of your comments.   I hope I inspired you today to get out your Halloween supplies and start your own new favorite card, enjoy!

Love your card this week! My favorite part is how you knotted the ribbon and I also love the fact that you used up one of the tags from the Ghoulish Googlies designer kit as the backdrop for the bat image.
