Boo!

Hello Hello!
Today is Skipping Stones Design Day!!!
Tuesday is Sketch Challenge Day!

We are super lucky to have the fabbie Karen Giron as our October Guest Sketch Artist!

Check out this week's sketch:


We played with the Happy Halloweenie Set:


I teamed up the "Boo!" Sentiment with some Echo Park Halloween papers..

I finally used my Zing embossing powders:)  The boo! is embossed with apricot.  There is a ton of stitching and did you notice the bling in the middle of the webs?
Treats...what's a Halloween card without treats?  I wrapped up some Peanut Butter Ghiradelli squares with a belly band..these will definitely go postal to a crafty gal so that she can reuse the buttons:)    The Candy Corn has been copic'd and then I coated them with Stampin' Up Crystal Effects so they are dimensional and shiny.

I hope that you join us in the sketch challenge this week!

You won't wanna miss the fabbie goodness from the other gals on the Skipping Stones Design Team:
