31--Happy Halloween

Well, Eric is back at work as of yesterday.  What a relief!  Now to just hang on until he gets his back pay.  We may be going for the ramen noodles if it doesn't come soon! 

Halloween is fastly creeping up on us.  I love to make Halloween stuff and decorate my house, but this year?  Complete fail.  Haven't pulled out one thing other than a Halloween wreath on my door (and that was only because I needed to move it to get to something else, so I just stuck it on my front door-ha!). 

Even though, I've been a slug and haven't gone all out this year, I still wanted to create spooky stuff.  I thought VERVE'S Viva La Verve sketch would be fun to work with and add a bunch of spooky layers to, so I went for it about a week ago.  Then it took me a little bit to pull it together.

I love the vintage-y look to it with the un-cutesy papers and glittery black bats (stickers).  I mixed the older HAPPY FALL stamp set (sentiment) with the new GEARED UP set (numbers-I LOVE them!) to add to the tag I cut from the SWEET SCALLOP TAG die for the focal point of my card.  I also snuck in the new AWARD BANNER border die in black across the bottom, then edged the aqua piece in dots of black Stickles.  This card is really sparkly in person!

Ok, so did y'all know that you can play in all the Viva La Verve challenges all month long?  And did y'all also know that Julee is a giver?  There's a $100 VERVE gift certificate up for grabs this month just by submitting a card for each weekly sketch challenge.  Pssst...There's still time to do this for October.  HERE'S the need to know info!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  I don't have a lot of stickers.  I'm just not that big of a fan.  But when I see some that are ones I can definitely use on a card, I consider getting them.  These glittery bats for instance...they came in a package of JUST bats (that's big in my book) and they are all different sizes and make great embellishments.  SCORE!
