Happy World Card Making Day!

Today is World Card Making Day. It's so cool that "us" card makers have a "global" holiday!   I'm not involved in any blog tours but did make a card to answer 2 challenges, one by Freshly Made Sketches  and one by Red Rubber Inspirationals.  Freshly Made Sketches had an interesting sketch (sketch #156), as usual, and RRI wanted cute and spooky.  I have a few Halloween stamps and used one of my favorites that was from The Angel Co. After I made this card I did find a couple Halloween stamp sets I have by Red Rubber Designs but I wasn't going to take the time do make this sketch again.

I like how this turned out and probably will be sending it to one of our kids or grandkids.  We don't celebrate Halloween and much prefer Thanksgiving but the all the kids do enjoy this holiday.

I was trying to get a pic of the shiny eyes and mouths from using my Black Stardust Gel pen on them.  You can see a bit of the shine.

I hope you are enjoying all the blog hops.  I will be checking the blogs I follow to see all the fun projects.  Hope you have a great day!
