Halloween card and a Winner

 Hi folks! Happy Wednesday! Or to you who celebrate it, Happy Halloween! For the occasion and as part of Meljens' DT Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge, I wanted to share a card. I typically don't make Halloween cards since I'm usually starting them for Thanksgiving and Christmas by now. However, I saw this cute image on Meljen's facebook page and wanted to give it a try! I used the Buttons--Bling--Twine combo with materials I had in my stash! Here's a closer look at the bling:

I colored a couple of my bling with my V01 copic! (That's the first time I've tried that! Don't know if I'll go back to purchasing colored bling again, I'm just sayin.') Take a peek at the inside sentiment:

For my first Halloween card in ages, I really had fun making it! This was my first Meljen image, the first of many more to come! I hope all of you have a fun, but safe Halloween whether you're going out with your munchkins or attending adult parties. Me, I'll be at home handing out treats for a little while...It's hard to resist seeing the little ones in their costumes. Speaking of which, what was your most memorable costume?

Before I go, I just wanted to ask all of my readers to keep the people affected by Hurricane Sandy in your prayers. And I as promised, I wanted to announce the winner of the stamp set giveaway from my last post! Random.org gave me the number 2, so Jennifer Grace--you are the winner!! Please post your email address in the comments below so I can get this wonderful set to you! Thank you all for your comments! Until next time, take care, come back again soon...
...And That's All She Wrote!


  1. Those ghosts are adorable!!! Thank you for visiting my Paper Pile Kitten blog. You were right! The raven IS a negative image! :) So is the cat in the first picture. I put the two cut out images on the back of one of the Halloween treat bags. It's so cool that you can insert negative cut outs with Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers! I use that technique all the time!

  3. Your card is really cute, Cheryl! I love the greeting on the front, "Hey Boo"...soooo cute! Don't you just love the images at Meljen's Designs?! I cannot get enough of them. They are so fun to color and they make the most adorable cards. I hear ya about the colored bling...Copic markers are a FANTASTIC thing! LOL!

    I hope to see more of your creations on the Meljen's FB page.


  4. This is adorable! Love the very Halloween color combo and the twine is the perfect add on. My favorite costume was when I dressed up like a fortune teller with huge hoop earrings, a scarf around my head and a crystal ball. Such fun! Happy Halloween. :)

  5. Very cute card- I love the "Hey Boo" sentiment! :)
