You are Spooktacular....Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #203~Holiday, CAS(E) this Sketch #181, AAA Cards Game #69~One Stash Favourite, The Paper Players #304~Watercolour

Hello!

Hope you're having a great week! I understand that many of you experiencing swelter-fest temperatures at the moment.  Wanna do some 'trades'? I'll send some of our rain, clouds, winds and cool temperatures, in exchange for some of your heat (not all....just some), your sunshine and your breezes?  Deal? Deal!

Anyway, today, my DT and I welcome to Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #203~Holiday


Evidently, the 'cool' weather conditions have shifted me into thinking about Fall, and in so doing, to one of my favourite "holidays": Halloween!  I'm absolutely smitten with Halloween images, which is rather curious, given we don't "celebrate" the event, aside from doling out treats to the kids who come our way. Just something about cutie-patootie Halloween stamps/dies makes me smile...and I do wind up making oodles of Halloween tags/mini cards for my niece and nephew, as well as their classmates and daycare pals, as well as their teachers.  I mean, who doesn't like a hug from a sweet 'mummy' now and then *grin*

Here's my inspiration card for the challenge, which follows wonderful Leigh's layout over at CAS(E) this Sketch #181:


Yes, I 'deliberately' made this smooshy, sprinkly-ish panel for my little dude, who I then gently, gently barely-any-water painted with the same distress inks (Wilted Violet, Carved Pumpkin and Mowed Lawn).  He needed a pal, so along came a spider...and you know the rest...


Now, it's your turn! 
Looking forward to seeing your Holiday-themed creativity in the ATSM Gallery!

  8. Oh goodness, this is so creepily fantastic! I mean I hate to be excited about a little thing being "mummified," but this is so dang cute! I adore your smooshy panel. Great effect with the wonderful Halloween-y colors. Such a fabulous card, Carol. Thanks so much for sharing. Sorry to hear your full enjoyment of summer is being thwarted by rainstorms! Hope they blow away soon. We are in our monsoon season, which means storms in the afternoon, but more humidity than usual. Yuck on the humidity, but yay on the possibility of rainbows! :) Hugs!
