13 Days of Halloween with SBS: Day 2

Day 2 of the 13 Days of Halloween with Simply B Stamps is hard core!  Eyeballs and Body Parts!  Ewwww!  I opted for eyeballs since I had some on hand...  Um, that didn't sound quite so creepy in my head!  Anyway, I had these fabulous Halloween googly eyes in my stash just begging to be used!  I originally selected my image, Little Lavinia from the Steampunk Classic Collection, because she was holding an eyeball balloon.  But once I had the image colored and everything laid out I decided to lose the balloon and make her loli an eyepopping one!  (Pun intended.)  The image is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  Sketch Saturday (#279) provides my layout.  Papers are Wicked  from My Mind's Eye.  I used one of my favorite Martha Stewart border punches then added a few flowers, a pair of pearls, and a couple more eyeballs for good measure.  My favorite part of this card is the brilliant sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  It's a set called Wanda's Pantry and I love it!

This is such a fun month, and I'm looking forward to all the festivities to come!  The small man and I had a quite weekend but we did watch some Halloween movies.  The Nightmare Before Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown both did time in our DVD player!  I also watched the premier of Witches of East End last night and I am enthralled!  I immediately put the book on hold at my library too!

It's going to be a busy week!  I have lots of crafting to do plus there's another premier that I cannot miss- American Horror Story: Coven!  Perfect timing for both of these shows, although I would watch them any time of year!  Just like I'd make Halloween cards whenever!  But there is something special about making them in October, and I can't wait to see what Betty has in store for us for Day 3!

Markers used: Copics (E00, E11, E21, E70, E74, E79, R20, YR00, YR02, YR04, YG91, YG93, YG95, N2, N4, N6).
