Purdy Halloween

Hello again and welcome to Monday!  I continue to be busy as all get out with the card making.  This will probably be my last Halloween card, but I will say I've enjoyed the heck out of making them.  Thoughts must turn now to Thanksgiving, upcoming birthdays, Christmas, and a large card order (great timing).

I wouldn't have nearly so many Halloween stamps if it wasn't for my friend, Sherri, who shared bunches with me this year.  I didn't have time to color them all, but I made a good dent in the batch.  This one is from the out of business Plum Purdy and one of my favorites.




Colored with Copics on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and decorated with Doodlebug papers and stars.  The Happy Halloween strip is from a pack of Halloween borders I've had in my collection for years.  I use them every year and will probably never run out.  The plaid border is a scrap left over from die cutting two strips of ric rac (last year).  Added some dots of orange Stickles glitter.  Simple and colorful!




I'll be back on Wednesday with my husband's birthday card and then we'll see what's next.  I've had to lay out my stamps and dies in some sort of order so I can stay focused and get more done.  Busy stamping times!  Have a good day!

LOVE the happy colors on this card and of course your coloring of this fun image is SPOT ON! I too (as you know) have been quite busy with craft projects but I'm finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. But then got an order from NC for 20 Christmas cards ...lol ... definitely keeping me out of trouble! Thanks for always sharing such wonderful inspiration! HUGS from OHIO

Is that the secret? If I laid just my NBUS stamps out in an organized fashion, they would end up at your front door, Leslie! Haha, you can imagine it, can't you?! This card is super fun and bright and colored brilliantly! That puddy tat is NOT going to share those purdy punkins!! Hugs, Darnell

This card made me smile BIG when I saw it as it is so darn CUTE!! What a great image and of course the beautiful coloring and your always 'spot on' design!! I won't tell you how many black barn kitties we have as it is a bit embarrassing lol ...but for some reason we can't seem to find them homes, people always want the unusual colors....fun fun card!!
