Sissy Ms. Witchy

Here's my take on a fun halloweeny card. I followed several challenges to bring it all together, listed at the bottom of this post. I used StampIt Crazy's image "Sissy". I was going to enter their challenge but I thought I had through today and they actually closed it last night. Oh well. I still love her and decided to finish her anyway. I wanted to enter Macabre Monday also but didn't have a spider so I took a pice of my spider felt border and cut one out of it. Then I attached two jewels for the head and body. I think it works. I used my notebook punch from Martha Stewart for Makeup for the weekend challenge. The paper is DCWV, of course. And I follwed the sketch from Midnight Madness, just love them. This is gettin me in the holiday spirit. I just did some research on some exploding boxes I'm going to attemp soon.

Well, I'm off. Gotta go pick some more tomatoes.. Argh, that means canning again soon. Oh well, it sure pays off during the year. Have a wonderful Wednesday and if I'm lucky I might just have one more post today.

Hugs - Jen
