Halloween Witches

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! :) I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a great start. If I can just get through Wednesday of this week, I will be happy. I was out of town almost all week last week for training for work. I have a huge court proceeding tomorrow and Wednesday which I worked on over the weekend. Once that is over, things should calm down a bit here :) I did manage to get a little bit of time in the craft room this weekend and I have a couple of cards to share with you today.

For my first card, I decided to ink up this adorable image from Sweet Pea Stamps. This particular image is illustrated by Elaine Cox and you can find it HERE. Isn't she cute? I colored the image with copics and then added Glossy Accents to the liquid in the cauldron and the bubbles (this is hard to see in the photos). Once the Glossy Accents was dry, I added some Stardust Stickles to the bubbles as well. I also added stickles to the fire. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME and Cosmo Cricket. I also added an orange ribbon and a double looped bow (tied with my bow easy). For some finishing touches, I added a Prima flower, and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

My second card today is a quick card I put together using my Cricut. I first cut the witch out and 3 3/4" using my Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge. I put the witch together and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. Next I created my card base using SU cardstock. My DP is from Recollections (I got it at Michael's). I also added ribbon and a bow and a witch charm which is from Making Memories (I also got this at Michael's). What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you all have a wonderful day and a wonderful week. Thanks so much for stopping by. See you back here soon.
