Hootie Halloween

CLICK HERE FOR THE QUEEN'S ROYAL COURT BLOG HOP FEATURING "4 MY BABIES SCRAPS" PROJECTS.
creation #247 for this year
Today is the beginning of a new challenge over at CARDZTV!
Mary's has come up with a great challenge! 

Challenge #92: “Hootie Halloween!”  Make a card for Halloween using an owl from any cartridge(s), and using any colors you’d like.

Yeah!  I have another excuse to make a Halloween project!  LOL ~~ as if I needed an excuse.  My card is made with *paper from ECHO PARK "Happy Halloween" kit. The skull and crossbones ribbon is from a Girly Kit I got at Michael's on clearance last year for about... I don't.... a couple of bucks.  Not much at all. The Owl on the Branch is from HAPPY HAUNTINGS page 56 found on Keypad overlay Row 3, Column 9. I used LACY LABELS for the Ovals. They are "Flower9" cut @ 3 1/2 with Shadow Feature and again at 4". This cut is found on the keypad overlay Row 5, Column 9.

Sure hope you'll "fly" over to CARDZTV and play along with us in this challenge. We can't wait to see what you create!  BOO!  :) Janis

You guys know I've created over a 100 videos, but not so many lately. Sorry 'bout that. I get new subscribers to my YouTube channel everyday and wonderful comments. Thank you so much.  Starting today I will be getting back to making regular videos again.  My goal is to set up a PAGE TAB or BUTTON for you to click from my blog to view my videos. This will probably take a few days to get all set up, so be patient with me.  Thank you again to all of you who subscribe, watch, and comment here on my blog and on my YouTube channel.  You guys ROCK!

You can find me on YouTube by searching for....... NORTHROSE42

#236 using Prairie Fairy Designs Digi Image
Here is my Halloween Card using ECHO PARK PAPER, K ANDREW DESIGNS' stamp set "Fashionable Friends", and the adorable image is a digi from one of our sponsors, PRAIRIE FAIRY. Isn't this little witch so cute!!?!

I am a very elementary color-er. LOL  Hey, it takes all levels of crafting, right?  I used Crayola markers to outline the image and Crayola crayons to color it in. (Thanks, Bonnie, for letting me use your coloring supplies for this.)

The FUN sentiment clear stamp is from K Andrew Design's stamp set, "Fashionable Friends". This is a terrific set for all sorts of projects.  Here's a close up of that....


And here is a picture of the whole set.  There are so many stamps here you could use for Halloween. For example, remember my witch flying over the moon card?  I used 2 of the stamps in this set, "I'm here for you" and "when you need a little lift".  hahahaha  And another Halloween card I made with a witch's boot, I used the "kick up your heels" stamp in this set.  And a fellow Getting Cricky Design Team member had lots of suggestions like using a mummy with the stamp "old friends never go out of style". LOL 


Here are 2 more cards made using Pink Cat Studio Digital Images. These images were digitally colored using Adobe PhotoShop. All papers are from Recollections. The perfect sentiment stamp is from K ANDREW DESIGNS' stamp set, "Fall-O-Ween".

  The adorable mummy mouse below is also made using Pink Cat Studio Digital Images. This image was came pre-colored from our sponsor! All papers are from Recollections. The perfect sentiment stamp is from K ANDREW DESIGNS' stamp set, "Fall-O-Ween".

Here is a look at all the perfect stamps in K ANDREW DESIGNS' stamp set, "Fall-O-Ween". 


Our sponsors have really spoiled us with some fun, fun Halloween digis to use!  Please click the link below the following cards to see the blog post with more details.  All of these cards were made with images from our sponsors!
