Happy Halloween!

Today's Blogger's Challenge was to create a Halloween card. I have to say -- this was tough -- it is my last Halloween card this season!

In any case,I chose to make a spooky background using the Distress Dragging technique from the February 2007 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I placed my glowing skeleton (Stampendous) over that...added a stitch stamp (Starving Artistamps), my greeting (Inkadinkadoo) and added a brad...Spooky!

Oh, I just have to share one more thing? What do you get when you have dolls glued all over a sweatshirt?





A Chick Magnet!!!

Happy Halloween!
