Trick or Treat

As you can see, I am still on my Halloween kick. I can't help it, have you seen all the cute paper, stamps, and embellishments there are out there this year?

I made today's card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #35. I love this week's sketch. It's so versatile. I chose to use a Michael's $1 stamp for the sentiment and brand new papers called "Boo to You" from My Mind's Eye that I picked up today.

I also picked up the Martha Stewart Spider Web punch and this too, too cute Bat Punch from EK Success. I punched him out of black card stock and then added two little Kaisercraft pearls for his eyes.

Well, I'm off to do more stamping. I'm behind by at least two birthday, one sympathy, and one get well cards. Please tell me that I am not the only one who makes Halloween, or Christmas, etc. cards instead of what they should really be working on!

Have a great evening!

It's all about the details:
Card stock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye, Boo to You

Stamps: Michaels

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Colorbox Cat's Eye
Accessories: Dimensionals, Kaisercraft Pearls
Tools: Martha Stewart Spider Web Punch, EK Success Bat Punch, Janome Sewing Machine, Mat Pack
