Which Witch is This? { Happy Halloween! }


Many of you have already moved on to making Christmas cards, but here I am hooked on Halloween! There are countless patterned papers, images and embellishments for this spooky holiday . . . not to mention all the terrific rubber stamps!

Thank you to my friend Donna in Oregon for sending me the sweet witch image that I've used for this card. I've colored her with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. Isn't she just the cutest, happiest witch you ever saw? :) I'm planning to send this card to my daughter Katie. When she was in high school she had a Halloween party and dressed up in a witch costume. Her hair is naturally curly and she got it to stand straight out exactly like this! It was hilarious!

This is a 5" square card using Stampin Up really rust cardstock and KI Memories striped paper. For the background, I stamped with a ball of saran wrap and added the little bats from the SU Halloween Backgrounds. The black cardstock was "cuttlebugged" with the mesh embossing folder. Brads and stitching to embellish!

Yikes! It's 10 o'clock already and I must get to bed earlier than I did last night. Sweet Dreams, Pam :)
