Hope everyone is doing ok after Irene. Thank God we only got wind and rain. We did have some trees damaged in some parts of the city. We were very lucky to have not lost electricity. We inadvertently take things for granted. My thoughts and prayers to those who were not as fortunate.
Well, I am posting these cute Halloween cards that I made for a swap that I am in. If you are a Peachy Keen fan like me, then you know that they started a new blog called the Peachy Keen Connection. It is awesome. One of the oh so talented Peachy Designers, Lorie Souther is hosting a Halloween card swap. For each spot, you make 6 cards, Lorie keeps 1 and passes out the other 5 and you get 5 back.
So I decided to join in on the fun. Of course you have to use Peachy Keen stamps but you can use other things also. I used the cute little Duck from Duck Dolls, PK-266 and the sweet ghost from Halloween Minis PK-631. I also used the scallop and stitched dies and the All Around Halloween stamp set from Emma from My Creative Times. If you don't already know, Emma's stamps are made by Peachy Keen.
I used the Drippy Goo punch on my layer, the fence, witches hat and cauldron are from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I cut out the candy corn from some designer paper and adhered them onto the cauldron. I added wire for a handle. The spiders on the hat are from Jolee's. I used the C1 gray Copic marker to shade around the ghost and colored the ducks beak and feet with a sparkly orange marker. Of course I had to add rosy cheeks to them also. On the fence, I sponged gray ink then I stitched around the base. I added a layer of confetti white cardstock inside.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and a great weekend.
