Have a "witchin" Halloween

Hi everybody.  A quick post before I head off to bed.  I had a wonderful weekend with my family.  My son's girlfriend joined us for a day of movies and fun.  She was gone for a week at the National FFA convention.  You know FFA in Washington state was something you didn't tell people you  were part of.  But here in the South it's completely different.  The kids are proud to be a part of it.  And your not cool if you aren't a member.  Weird how that works.  My son is a member too, just not an officer.  It will definitely help him when he starts college next year!

Anyway, on to my card.  I used Michelle Perkett's image "Happy Halloween Witch".  Isn't she cute?  I colored her in orange and greens.  She has a bunch of sparkle from my gel pens but it didn't show up very well in this picture.  I followed the sketch at Friday Sketchers.  The papers are from Echo Park.  I got this pack for like $3 from My Sheri Crafts.  It was just 1/4 of each page in a pack.  Let me tell you I have made SEVERAL cards with this pack and still enough paper for several more.  What a great idea to get to try out different designer papers at a fraction of the cost for whole sheets.  Uh oh, I'm supposed to be off already.  I guess I'm not very good at short postings!

Sweet Dreams or daily snoozes, depending on your time zone!
