Pucker Up: It’s Halloween!!!

It’s here! It’s here! My favorite day of the year! I can’t believe that the month is over! I am so not ready to stop making Halloweenie projects! Luckily, I don’t have to! But I do hope that many of you will keep checking back with me to see some of the things that I come up with! I had so many things that I still wanted to make for the month…And I really wanted to end it with a bang today. Unfortunately, unforeseen things happened (as they always do), and time slipped away. But again, no one’s sayin’ I can’t make them in December! ;}

So for my 31st offering of the 31 Days of Halloween (sniff!), I bring you a card featuring an image from Strange Skin, and a sentiment from Smeared Ink…who just happen to be 2 of the 3 (yup, 3!) sponsors we have today! The third is Wild Flower Kids.


It’s a pretty simple card, but that fang-tastic Strange Skin image makes it awesome!


I think he turned out rad! He looks so snarky! I thought that the “Pucker up” sentiment was perfect for him! And as you can see, I sprayed bloody drips all over the card using Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist and my Martha Stewart cupcake stencils. Have I mentioned that my sister Pam and I are actually going to see the devil herself for a taping of her show??? Wicked right? ;}


Here you can see the glimmery goodness of the mist. I just love that stuff! I pop dotted my Drac off the card to for some much needed dimension.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers…hopefully not for the last time! I have been so inspired by everyone, and I look forward to seeing what else they create! I am so glad that I got to be a part of this. And don’t forget about our final treats…Kelli’s Blog has all of the info.  Have an inspiring and spooky day! Happy Halloween!!!  )O(
