Trick or Treat...

Hi there. Hope you are having a good week so far. Things have been a bit crazy here as always...lol. The other night my dryer broke...that is a lot of fun with 5 people in the house! Yesterday my husband tried to fix it, but I think it maybe to the point of...well...done. I wish they would make appliances that worked like they did back in my parents' day. I remember the fridge we had growing up was like 30 years old before it finally went caput. Now, I am lucky to get 7 years out of my dryer! Thankfully, a friend of mine has a spare dryer they are offering me! What are the chances of that???!!! A FREE dryer! I will take it happily...even if we only get a couple years out of it. So hopefully by Saturday night I will have my "new"/used dryer so I can get back to my laundry. Not that I want to, but well frankly it has to be done...lol. Well today I was able to get a quick card done. I made this card for three different challenges. Ok...so this card is a little "busier" then I usually go with, but I actually liked the end results. First off...do you love my new little easel thingy??? My mommy bought it for me the other day. LOL. Ok...now...focus Jess...ok...I started with this adorable witch image from QKR Stampede. I colored her with colored pencils. I decided to go with a green skin today. I started thinking of one of my favorite books Wicked when I did this. LOVE that book...and sorry to hurt any feelings, but the book is soooo much better then the musical. The musical is great, but the book is just wonderful. Ok...FOCUS...lol. I added some stickles to the pumpkin, patch, and stars. The PP is all from the Target $1 spot. The ribbon is some free spiderweb ribbon I won on a Facebook contest. The little sentiment is actually cut out from the paper behind the witch.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Whimsie Doodles 52 - Trick-or-Treat
Simon Says Challenge - Halloween
What if Wednesday - Repeat Impressions - Sketch

Cute card Jess. How come you always find these things in the $1 spot at Target and I never do? Guess I should go there more often.......no, bad idea, I always spend way too much in Target!
