BOO!


Just plain old BOO!!! Hope everyone is ready for Halloween this weekend. Keep the little ones safe and have a fun time!

This was a fun card to make because of this cute little Witchy Poo image (by Boni-Boutelle-Jones) for Firecracker Designs by Pamela. Don't forget, Pamela is closing her store and having a HUGE sale. Be sure and check it out today!

This is my last week as a Digi Guest Designer for FCD and I have to say I've loved every minute of it. So thank you Pamela, Shelly, and all the rest of the DT. It's been a wonderful, enjoyable experience.
The card stock I used for this was Only Orange, Black, White, and Lavender Lace (or maybe it was Lovely Lavender - one of those lavenders anyway). I colored the spooky little gal in Copics and SU markers - note: I also added bloodshot eyes! The "Boo" was done with some chip board I had - colored it and then added a little glitter. On the white "oo's" I painted on some of that fabulous paint ( Fairy Dust) from Creative Inspirations Paint. I did a little stitching around the unknown DP, added the ribbon, tacked the little orange brad on it - and POOF, it was completed.

This is for several challenges - check them out and be inspired!

Hi Lynn,

Thanks for your ever so regular visits... they mean the world to me - honestly! And your sweet comments always bring a smile to my face.

This card is not plain old Boo - I don't agree because your cards are always sooooo... nice and clean and neat and very stylish. Of course a Halloween card cannot be stylish but this card is really nice. You cards have such a confident look about themselves.
