Simply B Stamps 13 Days of Halloween: Day 11

Oh my stars and garters!  What a day!  It started off with a fun trip to a local children's discovery farm for their Halloween party.  Kayne wore his Frankenstein costume from last year, and we had a blast!  Except for the pervading mist.  The cold, raw kind that penetrates your bones.  The storm is definitely on its way so before we headed home we stopped at the grocery store for those just-in-case provisions.

If all that outdoor fun and battening down the hatches for the storm wasn't enough, I had to come home and cook dinner then make a card for Day 11 of Simply B(etty) Stamps 13 Days of Halloween!  The theme at Simply Challenged Challenges is a color challenge: Candy Corn (orange, yellow, and white) or Caramel Apple (caramel and green).  Black is allowed as a neutral.  Both are yummy, but I went with Candy Corn.  Then today of all days, two days before my favorite holiday, my camera decided to die!  So I apologize for the quality of the photos.  They were taken with my phone.

I will admit this was a rush job and not my best work, but I am glad I made the effort.  I printed Little Witch Ariel from the Jude & the Rockers collection and colored her with Copics.  I stuck to the color scheme and made her a candy corn witch!  How much fun is orange hair?  Huh?  Huh?  I then fussy cut her so I could pop her up in the middle of my sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C160).  I embossed a spider web on black card stock behind her.  Papers are My Mind's Eye - Halloween Scary Sparkle.  I used a couple of clear sentiment stamps: one from My Favorite Things - Make the Date (October) and one from Clear Art Stamps - Halloween Fun (Trick or Treat).  The rest is from my stash: pearls, a Martha Stewart candy embellishment, a Tim Holtz metal corner, glitter chipboard numbers, and a sparkly spider from Jolee's Boutique.  The Star Circle is a Nestabilities die from Spellbinders.

Eleven down, two days to go, folks!  I will be a card-making and baking fool these next two days.  Let's hope I don't lose power!  While I can still bake no problem without power since my stove is gas and uses no electricity, coloring by flashlight or candle light would prove challenging, and blogging even more so.  I hope everyone in the storm's path stays safe!  Check back tomorrow to see what sort of hocus pocus I've been up to...

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, R00, YR04, YR07, YR15, YR18, Y32, Y35, Y38, W4, W6, W8, W10).

I don't think I could keep up. Glad you got to have some fun before the storm. Your card is very cute. Don't knock yourself short. You did a great job. I love the hair too. It's my fave color to use. Could it be my hair is red? I don't know. Hugs, Robin
