Merry Halloween

Hello from the Lake!

This week, I am blogging from Chatauqua Lake in western New York. I am here to relax, recharge, retreat..

I have a stash of projects that I worked on so that I was able to continue to share stuff here on my blog while away from home. Today's project was a very quick one, pulled from my goody bag of stuff from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. Included was a sheet of full-color vintage Halloween images which are brand-spankin' new to PPRS. I will update the link with more info when they are posted to the store.

I used the sketch for this week's Crazy 4 Challenges sketch challenge for some quick inspiration.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

I love this image! I matted it to a piece of Summer Sunrise cardstock that had been cut with my pinking blade. I inked the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink and stitched around the image.

The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye and the trim was from my local fabric store. The card base is Enchanted Evening. Have I ever mentioned how much I love the color combination of Enchanted Evening, Black, and Summer Sunrise?? No, I didn't think so.. ;)

Stick around - there's more fun to come! I hope you have a great day!
