My First Halloween Card This Year

The Haunted Design House Challenge right now is Halloween In Your Face. I just got back from the CK convention in Jacksonville, Florida where I bought this Tim Holtz Skull stamp and die - I totally love it! I met my friend Carol from Chocolate Crafts and Bears Oh My there and we had a blast shopping and crafting together. She is so talented and was sweet enough to share some tips and talent with me. She taught me to make the little glittered flowers I used on this card and a million other things. I will post a lot more fun details later but I have to run off to work now - urgh!!! Here is my card for the Haunted Design House Challenge:

Have a great day! Hugz!!!

  15. This turned out awesome. I love the silver glitter and the cheese cloth gives it great texture. Your Halloween flowers add just the perfect designer look too!!! It's always great to come away with so much energy and inspiration from crafting with others. I know I did crafting with you. It was such a blast and the memories I will always treasure. Did you get my email? Man it was the best weekend ever and I been wishing all weekend this week that we were doing it all over again!!! lol
