I spent last evening at Croptoberfest – and worked on my Halloween cards – in between eating too many treats!
The catalyst for the cards came from a blog I read http://prairiepaperandink.typepad.com/ on a regular basis, and Amy mentioned some adorable stamps she had used were from the $1 bin at Michaels – and off I ran. I was so happy to find them! What a bargain and so very cute! Then I used the skills I learned from my online class (thank you, Jennifer McGuire) and quickly made a bunch of rosettes to embellish my cards (adding a strip of washi tape to them before folding).
I had fun coloring the little witch – since she made me smile the whole time (really, when do you get to work with green as a skin tone)! Now I just have to get these cards into the mail.
