First up: October 15th Duel, hosted by Terry. Her kit had the most wonderful Halloween papers and an adorable image, great ribbons and candi dots to work with!
Here's what she said:
As Halloween approaches LJ and I decided to put together kits to celebrate the holiday! I know some of you do not celebrate Halloween, and I apologize for the theme,
but for most of us it's a fun day to watch the kids in the neighborhood
run house to house looking for the best candy!
In your blog post we would also like you to tell us what
your favorite candy is. If you don't have a favorite,
let us know what you like to eat....drink....or
if you like to be scary at this time of year!
Image - Haunted Forest (Stampin' Up!)
Papers - Boo! (Flair Designs),
Embellishments: Candi Dots (Craftworkcards), Ribbon (miscellaneous from Michaels), mini brads (Recollections)
I just loved the papers and wanted to feature as many as possible.
The bat, little owl, cat and pumpkin all have some sparkle from Spica glitter pens, it's very subtle.
This panel has a black gross grain ribbon tied in the center, but I couldn't get enough contrast in my photo to show it.
Here's a close up of the top where some glitter was added to the ribbon:
The inside panel shows off one more of the adorable papers:
Growing up I had a whole rotation of favorite candy, Starburst, Sweet Tarts, Tootsie Rolls, Milk Duds...the list went on and on.
Now I seem to have lost my sweet tooth. But once or twice a year a Reese's Peanut Butter cup can taste really great!
Thanks Terry for a really fun kit. (Did I say how much I loved the papers? LOL) The card is going to my adult daughter, who really loves Halloween - and candy!
