IS THERE SUCH A THING....

as a witch owl??!! LOL - there is now!!! I wanted to make a fun card for this week's sketch challenge over at Stampin' Connection, using my owl punch and some of the fun new Halloween stuff we have! So, this is what I came up with - a witch owl, heeeheee!!! I think she is cute if somewhat awkward in shape :-)  I made this a square card - this is usually my favorite size but I have not been making as many this way because it seems to mail them is not as fun! I learned that the hard way by doing almost all my Christmas cards this size last year, ugggghhhhh!!! But, for this one it had to be a square card and I love it! I used my fun stamp set called Wicked Cool - I cannot get enough of those fun witches feet, lol! And, I love bats - I stamped them all over the background as well as on the main image - too too cute, right??! And, I broke out my Big Shot, cutting a scalloped square from the Nite Owl Designer series paper found in the main catty. Super cute - there is even a piece in there with fuzzy black circles on it that would make great spiders, heehee! Then, I used my scalloped circle and my regular circle dies, which formed the main image.  And, since no card in my mind is complete without SOME ribbon, I added some Basic Black satin ribbon - can you say YUM!!!  Loooooove it!!!! I also played with my new border punch called the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border - isn't it fun??!!! I love how it can be used like ribbon.....there is no such thing as too much ribbon, right??!  I had sooo much fun making this card - it just makes me happy! And, I will be stamping away the day as I get ready for class on Friday and a big craft fair on Sunday! If you are local, come on over to Durham where the Harvest Festival will be going on and stop by and see me! You don't want to miss out on my make n' takes *wink*  Thanks so much for stopping by and if you have to have any of the things I used on this card (you KNOW you do, LOL!) go on over to my online store where you can place an order with me fast and easy!  Be back tomorrow with some of my Santa in September cards we did in class - such fun!
