Mr. Bones

Can Halloween really be just around the corner? Yikes, but this year has sped by.

For today's Serendipity Stamps challenge we were to create a Halloween card and use embroidery floss, yarn or (and I fudged a little bit here) baker's twine. I created my card with Mr. Bones as my focal point. Love this crazy guy! I used a die-cut frame from My Mind's Eye as his backdrop. I created the cross stitch pattern with We R Memorykeepers Sew Easy tool and then used the baker's twine as my thread. This was my first attempt with this new tool and it worked out really well.

I finished by wrapping the frame with more baker's twine and then added a few I Am Roses black rosebuds as an embellishment.

Visit Anya, Lynda, Amy, Jenny and Miriam too. You're going to love their creations! So be sure to go check them out!
