EEEK! Are you afraid of mice?

TGIF!!  I couldn't wait for this weekend to arrive.  The boys are so excited to get dressed-up and head out the door on Sunday.  This year my eldest has chosen to dress-up as Iron Man.  No, he has not seen the movie, he is far too young...he'd be scared silly.  I haven't seen it either, I'm a real chicken when it comes to anything a little scary.  My middle guy had his heart set on Spiderman.  Our nine month old (boy, time flies) will dress as a little bat.  I will be sure to post a Halloween pic of the three boys all costumed-up.

Now, on to my Halloween-themed cards.  I made cards for each of the boys' teachers.  Spiderman, or SPIDER HENRY was the ideal choice.  WHIFF OF JOY offers this ADORABLE superhero as a FREE DIGI.  He can be found here...THANK YOU WHIFF OF JOY!!!

As you'll see I used the same image for both cards, but changed-up the layouts a bit.  I was absolutely dying to give double-sided adhesive sheets and glitter a shot.  Phebe, the TOWN SCRAPPER, generously provided me with some supplies so I was off to the races.  Henry was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and odourless mineral spirits.  The first card is based on a Mojo Monday card sketch.  Here are my two similar guinea pig creations:

Well, that's it for today.  Just a little reminder of THE TOWN SCRAPPER'S current BUTTON CHALLENGE now underway.  Check out all the details, HERE.

A Terrifying Tiny Dancer??

Happy Tuesday!

I'd like to share a card I made for a friend's daughter.  Now, I know it sounds a little silly and looks a teeny bit strange, but I wasn't sure what this little girl would be for Halloween this year, so I decided to dress her in a tutu because I know she started dance classes about a month ago.  Do you think she looks a bit out of place on the front of this card?  I agree, this image is not the slightest bit scary, but I hope this 3 year old little girl will recognize herself as the adorable tiny dancer.

The sweet girl featured on the card is a Wags 'n Whiskers' stamp and is entitled Tiny Dancer.  I can think of so many little girls for whom this image would be perfect.  I believe she will also be making a number of Christmas card appearances...right off the Nutcracker Ballet stage!

Wishing you a SPOOKTACULAR week,
