Whew, I am getting this one in just under the wire...the Halloween wire, that is! Today's Just Us Girls challenge is to make a holiday card for a photograph. Kristin didn't say exactly WHAT holiday, so I made one last Halloween card. (And make sure you visit the blog....they have CANDY!).
Anyone who reads my blog knows that we are hosting a woman & her brother while she gets a guide dog, who will help her with migraines and balance issues from brain tumor surgery. They "graduate" tomorrow and today they had a Halloween party, complete with costumes, so yesterday, we sat & cut out felt petals and used black pipe cleaners as a framework so that Dutch could be a "black-eyed Susan". I was fortunate enough to get a pretty good picture of Dutch wearing his costume---he looks a little forlorn, but really, he's quite happy! I made it into a big easel card and I will give this to Lynn as a special reminder of the time she & Dutch spent with us:
He & Lynn won a prize for being the best look-alikes!! Here they are:
The card itself is very simple; I used Basic Black, Whisper White, & Summer Sun cardstock, making a 5 1/2" square card. The witch hat is embossed in White EP using White Craft ink. The other images are from Crafty Secrets' Halloween set, the "happy" is from SU's Happy Everything set and the words are computer-generated. The directions for the easel card can be found on SCS here. If you have any other questions, just shoot me an email! Hope everyone has a safe, happy Halloween!!!
