Happy Halloween Twice


I made the two cards you'll see in this post last night when I was going crazy with insomnia, so who knows how great they really look. When I am sleep deprived things just don't look exactly like they do when I am resting well. If the cards are not so hot, I take no responsibility. Sleep deprivation does not leave me in my right mind. If you like the cards, then maybe I should create more often when I am a zombie, which could be a good thing since I am becoming more and more zombie-ish with every passing night.

I used two sketches that are actually current this week. The first is a sketch from Mojo Monday (#107). I also used Jeanette Lynton's Color Me Monday combo from her blog on this card (Twilight, Sunflower, Clover Meadow and Black).

Close To My Heart products used: Beware Stamp Set (D1381), White Daisy Cardstock (1385), Good Times Level 2 Paper Packet (X7092B), Tinkerin' Level 2 Paper Packet (X7113B), Fresh Shapes Dimensional Elements (Z1019), On Target Dimensional Elements (Z1226), Silhouette Level 2 Paper Packet (X7090), Silhouette Creative Basics Collection (X5803), Black Stamp Pad (Z2105), 3D Foam Tape (Z1151).

Non-Close To My Heart products used: sunflower buttons (unknown).

The second card is using sketch #26 from 2Sketches4You. I almost always love their sketches.

Close To My Heart products used: Beware Stamp Set (D1381), White Daisy Cardstock (1385), Hydrangea Cardstock (X5634), Citrus Leaf Cardstock (1228), Orange Cardstock (1281), Silhouette Level 2 Paper Packet (X7090), Silhouette Creative Basics Collection (X5803), Black Stamp Pad (Z2105), 3D Foam Tape (Z1151), Brads (retired), Round Sponge (Z697).
