BC175 - Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet

Eww....So can you guess what the theme of this weeks Blogger Challenge is?
Yep, It's Halloween!  So today I actually have 2 cards to share.
First up is this adorable Halloween Kitty.  When I saw this set I just knew I had to have it just for the kitty image alone.  The great thing is though that it has several other adorable Halloween images and  sentiments.  You can find this set here:

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black in and colored it with Prisma Colored Pencils.  I stamped the hat  and sentiment on some Designer paper from DCWV-Midnight Spell Mat Stack.  I colored the buckle on the hat with a gold Spica glitter pen and mounted it over the original image with foam dimensional tape. 

Card base is: Lovely Lilac, layered with Tangerine Tango.  Background Designer Paper is Basic Grey - Eerie Line.  I also used my Martha Stewart spiderweb punch, some Orange Satin ribbon (Offray) Black Currant and Lime Sprinkles (Annabelle Stamps).  -  This card went to my wonderful friend, Elena for Halloween. 


Next up is a card that I made for my partner on SSUS Yahoo Group that I belong too.  For this card I used another awesome Halloween set I just had to have,
(Creepy Lane - Inkadinkado).  I love the lamppost image. 
For this card I embossed some Only Orange CS with the Spiderweb Cuttlebug Embossing Folder,  Added some DP (Retired SU-Cast A Spell).  Then I punched out a row of Ghosts (EK Success) and punched the fence (MS) with black cs and layered it over the ghosts.  The lamp was mounted on top with foam dimensional tape. I added black grosgrain ribbon, glitter to the lamp, some orange jewels and embossed the sentiment in with black ep. 
Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays.  I hope you've enjoyed these spooky (or not so spooky) cards.

Now for some more Halloween Fun  Check out Coleen and the Headless Horseman

Happy Halloween!
