First Halloween Card EVER!!!





Well, this is my first ever Halloween card ever!!!! I didn't think i would ever make a Halloween card and i have to tell you once this one was done, I'm excited to do more...soooo much fun. This image is another one of Krista Smiths that i fell in love with, colored with promarkers and the only thing i don't like is how i colored the broom, i wish i used lighter colors...Next time for sure. Another first is coloring hair a different color...i mean NOT a natural color, but if you look hard enough I'm sure you would find a teen sporting this look...ha ha. I used my cricut this time around mixing simply charmed and doodlecharms for the tree and critters. Double stamped my sentiment with a background web stamp and then the spooky from a fiskers set i own. My mind is in high gear thinking of great wordz for a new set....hmmmm. I also did a little cuttlebug action with the tree and added some ribbon. I hope you like it as I'm so glad of how it turned out.


Challenges i'm entering are:






Thanks for stopping by and come again on Friday to see more great creations using JUSTWORDZ everyday sentiments...take care all.
