Halloween Hottie


Hello and Happy Fall!!! I am back after a two week stamping hiatus!!! I needed to recharge the creative battery with some much needed R&R. I am posting my first Halloween card of the season. It's my favorite holiday, and I love when August arrives because that means retailers start selling for the holiday. Last year I had my hands full with a newborn and only made a few cards. This year I had good intentions, but my now one year old son had other plans for me - apple picking, pumpkin picking, professional photos in his Halloween costume, trips to the playground! We've been having so much fun I didn't realize how quickly time was going by. But when I put our decorations up last weekend I knew I'd better get moving.

I've been wanting to play with my Kenny K images for some time. His images are so much fun to color!!! Here meet Lady Raven. She even SOUNDS Halloween-y, and she is looking very wicked in her lingerie and platform boots! I used Kazan's Sketch 63 from 2 Sketches 4 You as my layout. This is a special sketch because it is also part of their design team search. How fun would that be?! I had a lot of fun when I was guest designer for Sassy Studio Designs so I thought it was time to try again. I also am entering this in The Shabby Tea Room's Week #31 "Pumpkin Patch" challenge. The challenge was to make a card or project using the colors from their photo as inspiration and/or create something that included pumpkins. Lady Raven in her orange attire was perfect! I'm also submitting it for Really Reasonable Ribbon's Challenge #10 -Halloween. This was an easy one as the directive was to create a Halloween themed project.

Thanks for looking and check back for more creepy creations soon....
