Tiffany's Challenge-October

Happy Halloween! Hope your evening is full of treats and trick-free!! We visited family last night and got the trick-or-treating finished a night early. So tonight we will just be hanging out (after church and choir practice) and snuggling in to watch some television.  The Great Pumpkin will be on and while we do have this on DVD, we still feel the need to see it on tv as part of our Halloween tradition!!

I do have a card to share with you, but it is not Halloween.  I don't usually make many of those and don't mail any.  I actually am sharing a card that has been finished for a few weeks, but I never got around to taking a picture.  I received the cardstock and DSP as part of our October challenge from our team leader, Tiffany.  I didn't make it to our meeting, but still wanted to play with the beautiful colors. Can't let those wonderful supplies go to waste!!

I stuck with a pretty simple design since the patterns were a little on the busy side.  I think the ornament balanced the two patterns pretty well.  Of course, I had to add some vanilla shimmer smooch spray to make it all sparkly.  I originally had not planned on ordering the Festival of Prints DSP, but after seeing all of the great patterns and the price (only $6.95 for 48 sheets of 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 paper), I went ahead and bought it.  The great thing is that the patterns aren't technically Christmas so they can be used for just about anything.

I am determined to make some time to do some major crafting this next week!  I am doing some fall cleaning this week and seem to be making more of a mess than tidying up, but hopefully by the end of this week, there will be a lot less clutter around here!! Wish me luck!!

I will leave you with a couple of pictures of my favorite ghouls!

They are such polar opposites and the funny thing is, the tomboy is dressed as the princess and my little diva chose to be a zombie bride! Have a wonderful Halloween!

  1. CUTE ghouls and a wonderful card!
    Love the DP you used on this and the simplicity of just adding the ornament is so lovely!

  2. Love the card, so elegant and the ghouls are precious!!

  3. Love your card - that DSP is gorgeous and so are your ghouls!!

  4. LOVELY card, I bet it was quite shimmery in real life. Those prints would be great for guy cards, too! I had to giggle at the girls costumes being so opposite from what you'd expect them to be.

  5. Those are some crazy patterns of paper together, but you know what? The longer I looked at them, they go so perfectly together and really draw your eye right back to the ornament. I think it's wonderful!
    Also, are you serious??? Did I miss The Great Pumpkin???? Oh that saddens me...:( I love that so much. I have it on VHS too, LOL, but still...
    Your daughters are so gorgeous Margaret and those are terrific costumes!!


I would love to know what you think! Thanks for commenting!
