Yup I actually mixed Halloween with Christmas and I am breaking a rule...but I love breaking rules so there ya go:) I am a Gemini to boot so I am allowed to mix the 2. For the Halloween card-It looks so hard but it's not and I am happy how I created the background with different dye ink pads. I used Orange in that card and the one Christmas card ornament. The die cut Halloween image is new and I never used it so it was fun to get my hands on that.
The second card is following the Colour Q challenge so Black, white, orange, lighter green and a lavender colour was used all for that card plus I had forgotten that I had this one ornament sticker left. It was fun to get the glitter out! I embellished it with brads, ribbon and crystals in peridot colour. One can see rectangles everywhere on my cards. (By the way, Colour Q had a previous challenge that my Halloween card would have worked but I missed it).
The last 2 are snowmen (duh). I embellished the hell out of them as well. The last one I nicknamed Liberace as he is glittered to the max. Now that third card I decided to use a different green and I kinda like it. I used my alcohol inks for a border and feel it sets things off. He is my Jolly Green Giant snowman (but don't call him pea brain-he gets pissed). The last card is in blues as I must have blues in a card. Sorry no guitar or Leadbelly here. Crystals abound along with navy ribbon. Nope he does not know how to play the piano and he is terrified of the Candelabra-the candles you know.
I will be gone for a few days as I am venturing to the big city to see a friend and then bringing him back here before he heads off to Thailand. It is his yearly visit and I plan on making him my bitch...um...that is wrong....he is already my bitch:) Sorry a little rude but Halloween is near and so the devil made me say that. I will find out what dinner he will like since he will have nothing but Thai food until April. My husband hopes he will pick Lasagne. Everyone I wish you a glorious weekend.
