SIP119 Cardmaker's Choice

Hi peeps!  Hope you're doing well today---it has been a beautiful October so far!  Justin has a fun , easy challenge for us at Stamp Ink Paper this week:

Image may contain: text

Well, maybe it's a little tougher than I thought!  There is NO WAY I could pick out a favorite stamp set, color OR paper!  I just have way too many favorites!  But I did remember a cute little stamp set that I hadn't gotten inky in a long, long time that I thought would be a good one to pull out...it is one of my many, many favorites, it's called Greeting Card Kids:

And I was able to incorporate a few more challenges with this one, too!  In(k)spire Me has a sketch; House of Cards wants CAS Halloween; and Less Is More wants watercoloring!

I stamped my cute little witch with Stazon ink on SU's watercolor paper and colored her in with an aquapainter and reinkers:

I cut the circle out with a Stitched Shape die and added a little circular element from another Halloween set, then added some spooky bats on the Crumb Cake background!  And here's the inside:

Lots of favorites...alll my Halloween sets are right up at the top of that list!  I hope you'll share your favorite stamp, ink and paper with us this week...if you can decide which to choose!  Check out the other designers' creations as well...they have some beauties!

And speaking of little beauties, here is Cassidy's school picture for second grade:

We were happy with it!  And we're happy you popped it today---be blessed!
