ohh my...ghosties are in the air!

Can you believe that there's only a week and a half left in September?? It feels like it should only be the 5th of September...this month has flown by me! I want to thank all of you for your well wishes for my hand issue. Y'all are too sweet! The infection seems like it's all gone...Cellulitis isn't something to play around with apparently so I'm glad it was caught early!!

With October rapidly (at the speed of light it seems) approaching it has my little brain going into over drive thinking about my favorite holiday...Halloween!! I'm excited to pull out my DeNami Halloween stamps and play! How about we start off the Halloween season with a fun card I made last year, why wait until October, right?

What a super easy card to put together! I started out with a black card base (A2 sized) and set it aside for a moment. I cut a piece of charcoal and a piece of orange cardstocks the taped them together on the back side and cut them to size to fit my base - keeping the orange panel larger than the charcoal one. Using the chevron pattern stamp from the Modern Borders set I made a "stripe" across both pieces of cardstock. In order to hide the ugly seam line, I added a length of black grosgrain ribbon, tied it in a bow and adhered it to my base. I made a little panel out of the orange cardstock and layered on a piece of lime green that I had free hand cut a wavy edge on. I stamped the little Halloween Fence (twice to get the length I wanted) onto the green and my sentiment on the orange then adhered that to a piece of charcoal cardstock and attached it all to the lower corner of the card. I knew that I wanted to add my little Friendly Ghost because I puffy heart that little guy so much but thought he needed a little friend so I fussy cut a Friendly Bat also. They are both popped up using foam tape/pop dots for some fun dimension. I thought it could still use just a little something so I added two black rhinestones to the focal panel and a little button/twine treatment to the bow.

Ohh how I love Halloween and getting to break out my darling DeNami Halloween stamps!! I plan on getting them all out and playing as much as possible this weekend! :)
