Who's That Peeking in My Window?

We're coming up on the last few days to get those Halloween cards made!  Many of mine are arriving on rather wet doorsteps -- to many of my family and friends in the wake of this horrific storm!!  We are keeping you in our prayers -- particularly overnight when it's hard to stay calm and get a nice, peaceful rest.  Stay safe.

In the meantime -- take a look-see at this latest CASE'd card.  I have since colored in these freakish ghoulies and added a few googly eyes for effect.  But it was a fabulously fun card to assemble!  It's still available in the Holiday catalog, and I've made so many different types of cards with this single set.  I just love it -- as do my boys!  Any time I can get them crafting is a great day indeed!

For this creation, I used the 1 1/4" square punch, and used the postage stamp punch for the border edge and window edges.  The spider web was dry embossed, and everything is raised up with strategically placed dimensionals.  I used Lucky Limeade twine for the drop-in spider (ain't he cute?).

So I'm going to be switching gears after Halloween to some degree.  I still have cards to make for various events, but I'm going to work on some quilting projects for Christmas gifts.  I am looking forward to sharing those with you soon!

I look forward to seeing your quilts too. This card is super cute. Did you use the postage stamp punch?

Sure did! Used it straight up inside the 1 1/4" square window, and just on the edge of the punch for the border line.
