Halloween Treats

I don't have much in my supplies for Halloween because I only make one card a year for our daughter and that's just because it is an excuse to send them something :)

Marianne was sweet enough to share a cute image she drew for Halloween and I decided to use it on my card for Amanda, you can find it Here on her blog . Now she gave instructions on how to color it too, but I just did my own thing so this in no way reflects on her teaching ability.  I have a combination of copics and spectrum noir that I color with.

Digital image from Marianne -- link above
Spellbinders -- classic sq. lg. and square swatches
Echo park -- the Apothecary emporium paper
Recollections -- lace on a roll
Taylored Expressions -- Gothic window accessories (bats)

I have my husband hooked on dies now too that he uses in his artwork so I am able to use dies that he purchases that I never would have bought for my cardmaking normally or I wouldn't have had the bats to add to this :)

Wishing you a fabulous fall weekend, we are having awesome weather!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and for leaving a comment, I so appreciate it!

Your coloring on this cute image is fabulous, Connie! Halloween cards are fun, but I never seem to have the time to make many of them. This is such a busy cardmaking season!

She's so adorable Connie, reminds me of me when I'd get back from trick or treating. Mom was always fussing in the background, wait until I go through the candy first. She tried to convince me it was for my own safety . . . but me thinks she wanted the best candy . . . . bwah ha ha ha!!!
