Something spooky in spring...

Hello everyone!!  Before you think you have stepped into a time zone, it is spring and yes, I am sharing a Halloween card.  You'll often notice us "off season folk" as those who are working on pub calls.  Sometimes it is SO hard to put yourself in the right season mind frame.  Imagine...end of winter/early spring you are working on fall, spring you are working on Christmas, summer you are working on last call Christmas and winter, fall you are working on spring etc.  The challenge is the best part.  Here was a card that didn't make the cut but one I like...which is actually saying a lot because I don't like Halloween (and don't celebrate it) is THE MOST difficult card type I create. 

Stamps: Spooky Sweets by PTI, Polka Dot Basics II by PTI, Holiday Button Bits by PTI
Ink" True Black by PTI, Plum Pudding by PTI, Summer Sunrise by PTI
Cardstock: True Black by PTI, Plum Pudding by PTI, Summer Sunrise by PTI, Stamper's Select White by PTI
Patterned Paper: Colorful Christmas by MME
Accents: Gingham Ribbon by PTI
Tools: Martha Stewart Punch, 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punch by EK Success

Have a super day!

P.S. Just a shout out to my very best friend in the whole world Ellen...happy birthday sweetie!  We've been best friends for 25 years.  She is that friend that even if we haven't spoken to each other for a while we can pick up the phone and talk like we talked yesterday.  Love her to pieces!!!

Alli, for somebody who doesn't like Halloween, you nailed it! This is a great card! :) Love that image and those colors are always a perfect combo for Halloween. :) Thanks for continuing to inspire me. :)

You did a great job on this - love the colours. I'm not a Halloween person either so I can sympathize!
Isn't it cool to have friends for such a long time?

May not have made the cut, but I think it's cute and I don't celebrate Halloween either. Thanks for sharing. You're one of my favorites listed on my blog!
