CCMC165 and Stamping 411 Sketch 219

Monday, September 5, 2011

The color challenge this week at Create With Connie and Mary made think of Halloween.


 So with a color scheme in mind I searched around for a sketch challenge and thought the latest Stamping 411 challenge would be just the thing.

I love making things for Halloween.  Cards, favors, you name it, I love it.  It seems like it's been ages since I've used one of my Halloween stamp sets so this was a lot of fun.  For this card I used a couple of stamps from the Halloween Hoot stamp set.  I colored the frog with a blender pen in Lucky Limeade.  I didn't have any buttons, so I once again made my own with the Sweet Buttons embosslit. 
I hope this inspires me to make some more Halloween things before the season is over.  I know it's only the beginning of September and I should have plenty of time, but time has a way of steam-rolling past and before you know it, it will be Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by today!
