JUGS366 and IM272 Happy Halloween

Happy Monday, everyone!  It's a week until Halloween!  Have you sent out any cards?  I made a big dent in my (hoarded) stash, but it's always fun to use my Halloween stamps, so I decided to make another one  The Just Us Girls photo challenge was too cute to pass up, and the In(k)spire Me sketch worked with the stamp I had in mind!

So here we go--it's pretty clean and simple!  I started with a Basic Gray card base and added some Frightful DSP from My Mind's Eye:

I got this little cat on a pumpkin a few years back from 100 Proof Press!  He just cracks me up!  I have had the cats border as well as the "Halloween" for a while, too....I believe they are from Graphic 45.  The "Happy" and the flourish are both from an older Crafty Secrets set.  I stamped them all in Basic Black ink and colored in the pumpkin with Tangerine Tango ink, then added some sequins...easy peasy!  I did do the sketch in the landscape mode, as the elements fit better that way!


The inside was stamped with an older Lizzie Kate sentiment, which I love too!

Out in the mail it goes!  And thanks for popping in today!

Have you hugged a pumpkin today?

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."  Proverbs 3:5-6

Halloween is my least favorite "holiday" BUT, your card makes it fun! Now there are more companies I have to search on Google :-) With the card shown in the portrait version, it looks like it could easily be an easel card. Love the pumpkins with sweet Cassidy. Have a blessed week.

LeAnne, what a great take on the inspiration photo. I love the embossing on that DSP and the line of cats creeping along the top is perfect! So glad you joined us at JUGS this week
