My very first Halloween card

Hello everyone - well we made it back safe and sound and we did go through a bit of fog and snow - but all and all it was not so bad - I am just glad we drove back in daylight - it would have been way worse had it been night-time. My card today is made with a new Penny Black Slapstick stamp. I think I only own 2 halloween stamps - the other one I haven't ever inked and I bought it last year - just may have to ink that one up before Halloween - I had no intention of buying this Halloween stamp but when I saw it at our local scrapbooking store - I thought this witch was too cute to pass up!! I didn't have any "Halloween" paper so I just looked for any paper with orange/green or black and I did find a bit of it in my stash pile. This image is fairly large so there was not too much more to do other than color her with my copics (sorry didn't keep track of the colors this time), I layered the papers and added some black pre-cut borders - I like them because they have a bit of glitter to them. I had a package of sizzix halloween die-cuts that I have never used either so it was fun to use the Boo and the pumpkin for this card. I added a few corners using my SU corner punch. I added my own doodles black border around the image and also used some Tim Holtz Black Soot distress ink for around the image. Thank you for stopping by to visit - I have a very busy week once again - I am already looking forward to the weekend - I guess we are almost half way there. Have a great Wednesday!!

Bye for now
Your stamping friend, Debbie
