Boo!

Sure feels like summer around here--in the 90s & the air conditioner is running!  However, cardmaking has moved to Fall & I'm joining in with my card for DeNami's September challenge, Anything Goes.
I promised a gal at work that I'd make a Halloween card for her this year.  We used to work together & of course, I made cards for everyone in the office.  She's kept every card I made for her--pretty special for a non-cardmaker, I think.  Now I'm back working at the same hospital where she is & can give her cards without needing to mail them.  I got out my stamp positioner for the face from a DeNami set of 4 little stamps I received in a give-away last year.  The dotted scallops is from Retro Borders 1--love using a non-holiday stamp for a holiday card--inked with Memento Tangelo.  Double-sided 1/8" red line tape was put between each panel & glitter was added before the rows of black pearls were attached.  The glitter was also added to the dots of the scallops.  A black Glaze pen was used to go over the faces.  Boo! is from the same set & was hand cut into the tag & matted with the orange shimmer & black cardstock, same as the card.  (In reality the oranges go together, in spite of how they look in the picture.)  The glitter also outlines the tag.  I added 3 of the pearls, 2 loops of ribbon & popped it up to finish off this cheerful Halloween card--I'm not really into scarey.  Since Halloween is a Fall holiday, I'm also going to enter this card in the DeNami National Stamping Month Challenge #2--Fall.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Just back from vacation celebrating our anniversary, but needed a break from laundry, so decided to post this card I finished right before we left.  May have some pictures to share soon.  Enjoy your weekend & I'll soon be checking your blogs to see what I've missed!

  2. Hi, Greta! What a FABULOUS card, and such a unique design! I love all the bling and glitter. AND the way you added the sentiment is SO clever! I love it!

    Your talk about weather always makes me smile. We've been in the 100s. Tomorrow we are supposed to get a cool front, so the temperature will drop to the 90s. YEAH! I may have pull out a sweater. :-)

    Happy Anniversary!
