Halloween Sketches

Finally got around to making some Halloween Cards. Don't know why I leave it so late, I really love making them once I get into it. It's hard to believe that Halloween is only a few days away though. It doesn't seem to be as big of a deal as when the girls were little and we were scrambling for costume ideas. Now we worry about Halloween parties. Yikes.

So on to my cards...the first one is for CPS.

The paper is from Bo Bunny and My Mind's Eye. Don't know who makes the sticker. It's been in my stash a few years now. Ribbon is from Martha Stewart.

The next card is for The Cuttlebug Challenge blog. The challenge is to scrap lift one of the designers Halloween Cards. Mine was inspired by Karen Maldonado.

This is also for an image swap on Cuppas and Cards. The image was drawn by Gregory J. Griffin, one on the member's (Connie) husbands. I love the image, and think Connie's husband is very talented! The paper is from Bo-Bunny and Karen Foster, brad is from Queen and Co. and I used the Argyle embossing folder inked with white in for the background.

Any plans for a Halloween party this weekend? We haven't made any yet, but you never know what will come up. I came across these drinks on Martha's blog

They look devilishly good don't they?

Hope you've had a good start to your week.
