Halloween on the Brain.

No….I mean it. Seriously.

Look, it’s good for you. Hey! I know….and just think.
It’s only September.
I have two Halloween projects for you and one blog hop, so please pull up a chair and get comfy.
First, is the Blog Hop.

Four lucky winners will win their choice of one of the
Here is the card I made using one of the stamps from the new set:
IMG_3925 copy
I colored the little guy with a few Copics, cut the image out with my Spellbinders, added a ribbon, a bow and one of the sentiments from the new set….a little stitching….and there it is!
So,.…what do you think?
Easy peasy, right?
Next, I found this sad, forlorn little guy at the Goodwill last year and have been wanting to do something with it ever since. Don’t get me wrong. In it’s outdated icky pine state , it’s been the perfect addition to my darling husband’s disaster of a garage delightfully charming Harley garage ever since it arrived, but now was the time to break this little guy out.IMG_4258
I spray painted it with this images
and added a bit of festive Halloween Scrapbook paper to the place that, in it’s previous life was …smoked glass.
The trick or treating silhouettes were cut with my Cricut Expression and the Cricut cartridge, A Child’s Year.
So,…tell me what you think.
I’d love to hear.
Thank you so very much for visiting!!!
Please remember to leave a comment so that you will be entered into the drawing for the Celebrations Stamp set.

  35. Oh my, I came on last night to see if the blog hop was up and did not realize that this was it. I thought since it was dated the 20th that it was a general post yet I did leave a comment. Checking to see if there is another post today and realize this is it...my other post was dated before midnight so I don't now if I needed to post again or not?
