Halloween Words

Having two boys, I can ALWAYS use more Halloween cards (even if my oldest IS 17!), so I decided to make a quick and easy Halloween card.


I used cardstock, one stamp, embossing powder, and heat embossing, so I think this card probably took me all of five minutes to make.  I might still add a piece of Halloween ribbon across the top, but I quite like the simplicity of it.

Challenges Entered
~CAS on Sunday Challenge #93--Heat Embossing
~CASology Week 219--Spooky
~Scrappin' 'n' Chattin' October Monthly Card Challenge--Halloween

Supplies Used
~Cardstock from stash
~Deep Red Cling Stamps Halloween Background
~Versamark watermark stamp pad
~Zing! Embossing Powder in Black Glitter Finish

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy scrapping!


Happy Birthday old truck

When I saw the new challenge at PaperCrafter's Corner, I knew exactly which image I was going to use.


Then I found the current sketch at Sketch Saturday


and I knew it was perfect for my card!  It seems I'm always in need of a masculine birthday card but never have one on hand.
