A Spooky Tree with Treat Bag

Coffee of the Day - Maple Vanilla

Holy Toledo Batman, it has been almost a week since I last posted! eek! talk about scary spiders and petrified pumpkins! sorry about that! we have had some illnesses and such around the house, so not a lot of crafting had been done. but this weekend I hope to rectify all that and celebrate World Card Making Day with a bang!

Today marks a new challenge over at A Day for Daisies. The challenge for this fortnight is Lots of Layers! You can do that however you see fit, just so long as you use an image from the store. I chose this fun Spooky Fall Tree because I thought it would be neat to try to add some dimension by cutting out the leaves and pumpkins & popping them up with foam tape. the leaves are popped up with glue dots which really gave more depth than I at first thought. The entire main image is sprayed with walnut gold glimmer mist. The little spiders are touched with a black spica glitter pen. I added a vintage treat bag I picked up on Etsy just for the occassion. We don't normally celebrate Halloween, but I thought it might be nice to send a card to both Mick & Tyler while they are away at school. so yes, I did make 2 of these babies! :) I know there is both lace AND flowers on here, but hey, black lace adds to the spooky effect and the flower is a pale one, so perhaps it will blend........ papers are Basic Grey Indian Summer.

Check out the new group Tammy has started over at Simply Scrapping Crafts. We are having such a great time chatting, sharing projects, and just getting to know one another! Why don't you join us? :) and please stop by my fellow DT members' blogs to see what they have created. They will inspire you with their creativity and talent!
