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!
