Be Witched

"I'm not into the trappings of Halloween"... I proudly pronounce every year, usually while unwrapping a decadently delicious chocolate. There are also days in October when I find myself incapable of any speech ... but I blame my Mum for that. She taught me never to speak with my mouth full .... and right now is one such moment.

I'll leave you with my weekly MojoMonday offering while I give myself a good telling off for emptying a modest bag of M&Ms. (They most definitely melt in my mouth! LOL)


I'm going non-trad for this Halloween card by throwing in some turquoise and lilac. It doesn't have to be all ghoulish and grey. The papers are from Fancy Pants' 31 October 6x6 pad from a couple of Halloweens ago. For the background doily I cut some vellum using Nellie Snellen's Dotted Circle die. I stamped the bats, from WMS Gracie at Halloween,  directly onto the patterned paper. The greeting is from WMS Hocus Pocus

Meet Gracie. She's good witch from WMS Gracie at Halloween. I coloured her with Graph'It and Promarkers, carefully avoiding orange and green! 

On the inside a stamped a greeting from WMS Gracie at Halloween


You'll find Gracie at these challenges:
Mojo Monday #314 - sketch
Waltzing Mouse Fanatics #3 "Halloween"
Make It Monday #161 "Anything Goes"
Curtain Call Inspiration "Spooky Scene"
Really Reasonable Ribbons #81 "Fall / Halloween + Ribbon"
Sweet Pea Stampers "Purple Power"
Graph'It Colour Challenge #15 "Halloween's A Scream"
Hobby Cutz #19 "Halloween"

That's all from me today. Thank you for stopping by and I'll see y'all in blogland!

Beijinhos!

  1. Now THAT is too adorable! I love the colours you chose too - she's just the right amount of spooky to go with all that cute! And oh, Halloween candy....as a diabetic I must say that Christmas & Halloween are a bit torturous now. There are a few candies that are worth the sleepy feeling after ;)
