Penny's Challenge Sketch


Today's sketch at Penny's is shown above my card. Well looking at my card you're probably thinking that's pretty corny right?? Well I wanted it easy peasy and bold to be told sooo...I followed the sketch and made it easy by using some Sticko stickers and my Spellbinder's scalloped circles, added a little bow and that was that. Hey you guys before we know it Halloweenie will be here and I love thinking about how to dress up for the trick and treaters. I used to make my front lawn into a grave yard and have all sorts of spooky stuff but I scared the begeezers out of the little ones so I tried to tame down a bit...but not by too much. I got some really cool organ music ( don't know which organ was plucked to produce the screams) and I blast it really loud with speakers out of my front house windows. Probably a little too loud as my one neighbor walked over and asked if I could play it just a little softer. What a hag, and she wasn't even in costume. Well I have some time to put my beanie in motion and see what I can come up with. In the mean time have a good week. Hump day and that means the weekend is almost here again. Be back on Friday for my next challenge.

Oh my goodness Pat, I can just imagine you on Halloween. Organ music and all. How I would love to know on your door. What do you serve for "treats".

Darling card too!!! I love the simplicity!

Cute cute card, Pat. I've gotten so bummed about Halloween. 2 years ago I had only 7 goblins come to my door. Last year I only had 3. :( We live at the end of a long steep drive and it just isn't worth it to the little ones (or their parents) to make the hike. I've even been giving away full sized candy bars the last few years hoping to get the reputation in the neighborhood. Didn't work. I'm bummed. Maybe I need to borrow those speakers?!? lol
