The great pumpkin

Good afternoon!  I've been so busy with the kids and my big card order this week I haven't had alot of time to add to my blog.  Today I have two great images from Sugar Creek Hollow.  The pumpkin is "Swirly Punkin Head" and the spider is "Swirly Spider".  They have some fantastic images over there.  I printed out my spider on cardstock then cut it out and ran it through my Xyron twice.  After I ran it through I added black glitter.  Because it had that extra bit of glue on the edges it gave it a bit of a hairy look to the spider which I love.  I colored my punkin with Prismas and added Green Glitter Gel pen to the swirls.  My stamps smudged so I just went with it.  The main cardstock is  cuttlebugged and I added a piece of ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I've been trying out a few new challenges to meet new people and get a feel for some different artists.  As a general rule I don't usually enter more than 3 challenges at a time because I like to dedicate my cards to those challenges and I don't feel I can do that with tons of entries.  Let me know if you have a favorite too!

Hope you like it!
