Best Witches ...

Pin It

Happy Stump Day, Hampers!

Today's card project was created for SCS's "Clean and Simple" Design Team search. Designers must create a card following a sketch, a color combination, and/or an autumn-themed holiday. I chose to create a card featuring my favorite autumn holiday: Halloweenie!

I stamped my pumpkin in hybrid ink, colored it poorly using Copic markers, then over-stamped the sentiment in Distress ink.

For all the spooky product info, check out the supply list, below.

Soooooooo, Sheila's DH, Ken, called me last night to ask if I'd create an "anniversary-slash-birthday" card for him to give to Sheila.

"Ummm, Ken, I can make a birthday card ... or, I can make an anniversary card. Do you want me to make one of each?" I asked.

"No, that won't work, Deb. I need a card that covers both events ... we're celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of Sheila's twenty-ninth birthday."

Alrighty, then ... that I can do!

Thanks for stopping by ... you rocketh!
