Halloween

Good evening, and thanks for coming by for a visit. I have another Halloween card (Sorry, I know I said I was finished. However, when I listed names for those I wanted to send cards, I was a couple short! LOL). I did have some images colored, but waiting for cards. So...on to the card specs: This is a cute Penny Black image called Catman, colored with copics. My colors were in the YR & W familes, with just a bit of E95(tea rose?) on his nose & ears. Used S/binders pinked circle to diecut, sponged with Distress Ink Scattered Straw, then went back over using a dauber with Memento Black. I inked the dauber, stamp off on scratch paper, then sponged lightly over the DI. The background papers are snippets, embossed with 3 different folders. Little ghosts are Memory Box (love 'em), and the sentiment was cut with the S/Binder ribbon tags. Sheer orange ribbon was from a spool in the stash. I think I'll go see if anybody is at Pixie's Playground. These ladies are such fun, and man oh man, do they ever help me in using up the snippets. If you're like the rest of us, with lots of leftover 'schtuff', give them a whirl. As I hopped over the pond, I saw Di's post about the Rudolph Day reminder, so I need to get cracking. Got an entry nearly ready, especially for that challenge.  There's lots of fun at this challenge, and Sarn opens it for linking on the 25th. If you have some time, a Christmas-y card to share, check it out. In the meantime, have a great evening and wonderful week. Hugs.
 Edit: Once again, a big thanks to Linda for reminding me this can be entered at the Penny Black & More challenge for October.

Such a cute card! I love PB and those ghosts are so cute!! I already have my Rudolph card ready, I've missed the last two times, so I'm going to make sure I don't make it three in a row.
