A Halloween Card for Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - WHAT?!?!

Yes, folks that's correct! Today the challenge at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long is to create a NON-CHRISTMAS CARD!! We are being sponsored by Softpencil digital stamps...you may have seen a few of their digi's on my blog, lol!

I'm so excited about my card because not only am I using the fabulous digi, LITTLE WITCH but I'm also using some of the new HALLOWEEN POLKA DOTS printable papers and the HALLOWEEN DIGITAL PAPERS. Talk about everything matching...so very cool!

I used my Copics to color this sweet witch. I added a spider that I had in my Halloween stash to give it a little spooky feel. See the rhinestones....those are from my I-Rock tool...I use that just about as much as I use ribbon anymore. LOVE that tool!!

I used Mercy's sketch this week (#88) for the layout. The sentiment is a rub-on (again, found it in my stash. Liking that I'm using things I have instead of buying). After decorating the front of the card, I had some left over paper so I put it on the inside.

I don't normally do that so it's nice to have it completely finished and ready to go. So what do you think? Those digital papers are really cool. There are many different colors too - you can see them here.

I hope you'll play along this week...it should be easy since all you have to do is create a NON-CHRISTMAS CARD! Link your creation over on the CSAYL blog so you'll be entered for the prize this week - a $10 gift certificate to the Softpencil Store!!

Thanks for stopping by today! I actually had to get up early and leave town by 6:30 this morning to attend a Copic class in Salina. I'm really looking forward to the class and seeing some of my Angel friends! Then once I get back, Abby and I are attending a Fun & Fitness Girl Scout function. Saturday I have some in service training from 9 to noon and Abby has her first soccer game of the Fall season.You can bet at about 2pm on Saturday I'll be crashing - HARD! I'm not used to getting up early...and believe me I'm still staying up late (1/2 AM late) Better get out of that FAST since I start back to work on Monday morning! Have a great day :)
