Little C's Challenge #8

Hi Everyone! It's challenge time again!! Whoohoo! We're on challenge #8 now! Wow, 8 challenges already! Well, this week's challenge is to create a Halloween card using the sketch below. I hope you all will play along!! For the details be sure to stop by Jen's blog site Pieces of Me.

My card was created using the "Anthony & Burt" stamp. that you can find at Jen's online store "Little C's Stamp n' Things. This stamp is called "Pumpkin Burt". Oh, my gosh this stamp image is so fun to color!! I mean, seriously! I bought a few of the "Anthony & Burt" from Jen and I can't wait to ink up the others. Be sure to stop by Jen's store. . .she has a lot of sales going on including "Whipper Snapper" stamps!! I love Whipper Snapper.


A ;little bit about my card. . .I colored the image using my Copic Markers and rubbed the background with dye ink using my sponge dauber. The web image in the background is by Stampin Up "Web Wishes" and the pumpkin is from the SU set "House of Haunts". The designer paper is by DCWV. I added a little sparkle to the Jack-o-Lantern by adding yellow Stickles.

Not to change the subject. . . .I'm sorry I haven't been posting much lately and stopping by your blog sites to comment or say hello. There's been a bit of a "drama" in my life and it's been sort of stressful. It's one of those weird events that sort of enters into your quiet peaceful existence that you're not sure how to handle because it's a "way, way out there" sort of stuff.

It's the sort of event that you're not sure is a good thing or potentially can be a VERY BAD thing. I wish I could discuss what it is but it is, like I said, way out there! I'll see how things develop.
