Halloween Gretel - Little C's and Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii

Hi Friends!! Wow, it's Wednesday already!! Unbelievable! Wasn't it just Sunday? I know I talked about this before but I started a fitness challenge site on Facebook. It's called Fitness Towards Healthiness. Does the name sound okay? I asked my husband and he said it's not really proper English. Whatever!!!!! I didn't want to name it Fitness and Healthiness or Health and Fitness. I needed to convey the message that fitness results in becoming healthier and not necessarily to lose weight, albeit for some of us . . .it is necessary to lose weight. I think losing weight should just be the natural progression but not necessarily the main goal. The ultimate goal is to live a healthy lifestyle in every aspect.

Anyway. . .if you're already on Facebook. . .visit my fitness page and join in the challenges or if you're not on Facebook, join in so you can join my fitness page. Click Here to check out the fitness page!! You can also find the badge on my left side bar and get a peek of what is going on there.

Okay. . .now to my card and the reason for this post. LOL!! This cutie is Gretel by CC Designs which you can buy at Little C's. Jen has a great variety of cute stamps and other products . . .go check it out!!!

I created this card for Jen's challenge site "Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii". Today is my day to post a card/project there. Go check out Stamp n Scrap Hawaii. . .there's a challenge in progress. . .play along and you'll have a chance to win a prize. Whoohoo!

Gretel isn't necessarily a "Halloween" image but I thought she could be used for a Halloween card. I colored the image with my Copic Markers and added a few embellishments like the spider and web buttons. Hey. . .Halloween is right around the corner. . .you better get started on your Halloween cards!!

Anyway, I hope y'all are having a wonderful Wednesday!!

LOL on the English lesson from DH! I think it's a great name and I love the message behind it. I recently took over a weight loss swap on SCS. It's fun and it works, and I wish you great success and good health!
Love this card, Maria! So cute, especially with the littl bat sitting on her lap! I just ordered a bunch of H'ween paper and the mail can't get come fast enough! LOL!
