Batty for You...Addicted to Stamps and More #163~Holiday, CAS(E) this Sketch #141, Chouxchoux Paper Art Challenge #1~Halloween/Fall


Hello,

Today, my DT and I welcome you to 
Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #163~HolidayWhile Halloween is technically not a holiday, this year it falls on a Saturday, so I'm proclaiming it as such *grin* and sharing with you two cards, featuring my new CB Fright Night stamps/dies and a last year's Memory box spider web die.  Inspiration for my layout - with a 'magnification' adaptation, of course - come from CAS(E) this Sketch #141


First up, sporting a not-too-scary wing span, a cute fanged-smile and an outpouring of 'love' is my sweet little bat...


Second, my cross-eyed ghost, popping out from behind the tree, with his two companions, with Happy Halloween wishes....


Hopefully these aren't too scary for my niece's kindergarten teachers.  And oh, do I have ideas for little cards for her classmates (all 31 of them) and my nephew's daycare pals (20 some...).  Halloween stamps and dies are just so much fun!

Please visit the marvelous holiday-themed inspiration over at Addicted to Stamps and More, then join us with a design of your own.  As added incentive, one lucky winner will receive a....


How awesome would that be!  Kylie's stamps are AH-MAZING! Check them out here (I'm rather partial to the butterflies...and the sentiments...oh, and the numbers *grin*.

I'm also heading over to a new-to-me challenge - that definitely appears inviting and welcoming -  over at Chouxchoux Paper Art Challenge #1~Halloween/Fall


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

I have been watching your blog and loving your creations. I am so swamped at work, and I have gotten myself so far behind in visiting my friends. I just had to tell you how much I love these adorable halloween cards. The spider webs are awesome, and I love all of the adorable images and sentiments that you used. Just wonderful. Happy fall. I will try to keep up my visits better. xo

Two very fun and playful Halloween cards. I love them both. So many fun (and not spooky) elements--perfect for a kindergartener to give to a friend or teacher.

Sweet spooky cuteness! Too scary? Absolutely not! Too cute? Absolutely yes - the teachers are gonna love these!

Goodness girl, you're gonna be "batty" by the time you're done! (sorry, couldn't resist the 'batty' part!)

Deborah Frings said...

LOL! I think both your Halloween cards are simply delightful. Love all spiderwebs, the cute ghost and bat. Great take on the sketch layout too. Great work. xxx

Lisa Minckler said...

There is such a fabulous crispness to your cards. Everything fits perfectly like a well planned puzzle and the movement and excitement that jumps off the cards is perfect. I love your style of card making. I also went to that link and looked at the stamps...the numbers ARE amazing!! ;)
hugs,

Fabulous take on the sketch, Carol! I love the color combo on both cards, and how well your design works with the bat and ghost! Two fabulous Halloween cards, my friend!

Greta said...

2 darling cards, Carol--my kind of Halloween cards!

Bobby said...

I thought of using a spider web for the CTS challenge too, Carol but the rest of the card wouldn't come together. I love what you've done with all your bits and pieces of Halloween images. Just delightful and not too scary.

Kylie said...
