Another Halloween Card

Well, I putzed and putzed with this card last night and just couldn't get it to come out how I wanted it to. I was thinking so hard I had a headache when I went to bed! Stamping just shouldn't be hard, should it? DH (darling husband for those non-stampers) was helping me, but I just couldn't get it. He has an intensely creative mind but it a very out of the box way which is the opposite of me. So, he thought of the idea of the black ribbon making bats this morning and I have to say I think it is just what the card needed! So, he must get full credit for that idea!

We stayed home last night and it was a good choice. We both had fun with our hobby of choice!
He played video games and I stamped. He is about as crazy about games as I am stamps. Luckily his games don't seem to cost as much! In stamping there is ALWAYS something you just HAVE to have! But, there is just nothing like it so I think it is worth it!

I know it is pretty early for Halloween cards but I have noticed that there seems to be quite a time lag between holiday cards for me. The last big batch of holiday cards I made were for Valentine's Day. I think that could be why we get so excited for Halloween cards. The fact that like 8 months separate them from our last good opportunity for a good mass productions of holiday cards puts us in holiday card starvation mode. I suppose some make 4th of July cards, but I have never gotten into them. So, with that I will stop blabbing and get to the recipe!

Stamps: booglie eyes
Paper: Halloween Night dp, pumpkin pie, watercolor paper, wild wasabi (my new favorite color)
Ink: going gray, wild wasabi, lavender lace, pumpkin pie, black, blush blossom
Accessories: aqua painter, stickles (first time using them), black grosgain ribbon
