SDC 168: Book Text (and more Halloween goodies!)

Y'all know I just can't get enough of Halloween good things. When Corrie picked book text  for the current SDC challenge theme and my buddies in my Mixed Media ATC group decided to add 3 additional ATCs for our swap this time I knew it was time to get busy.  Here's what I did...

I used Girl With Lunchbox and tweaked her a little differently for each ATC.  Amazing how weirdly colored eyeballs can transform a girl into something kinda spooky.

Here's a peek at the three other Halloween-ish ATCs I made for our swap.

I hope you're enjoying October so far.  Cheers!

Festive Friday(s) 41 and 42

They choose the prettiest inspiration pics over at the Festive Friday Challenge blog.  I've been really busy the past few weeks with kids' school stuff and Etsy orders so didn't get to the #41 challenge, but things have calmed down a bit now so here I am catching up.

You can see where I borrowed the red ribbon, white background and greenery for my card from the inspiration photo below.

And here's my second card inspired by the previous challenge, FF #41:

This time I borrowed the evergreen wreath and wood background from the photo below.

It's so hard to think about Christmas right now when I'm still having so much fun with Halloween stuff.  It will be nice to have a stash of cards already done when December rolls around though.

Happy Friday!

I love October!

The chill is in the air in the mornings and crispy leaves are on the ground.  I love this time of year!  I have a long-standing trade with Aisling for 12 ATCs over the course of a year.  Seems pretty simple - one per month.  However, some things never change and since I'm a big, huge procrastinator I have eight to make over the next two months.  She likes the weird, quirky stuff like I do.  :)  Today I whipped this one up for her:

Mwah-ha-ha!  Makes me grin.  Hope you're having a fab Sunday too.
