Halloween countdown

Today I'm starting my countdown to Halloween. For me, this has been a great month of cardmakring. This is my 20th post this month and I've made far more cards than I've posted!

Today's card was made with "Little Honey Witch Betty" and is freebie available at Paper Craft Planet for the next 24 hours. If you aren't already a  member, now is the time to join. Sassy Studio Designs offers a different freebie every Friday but they're only offered for 24 hours and then they are locked back in the SSD vault.

Using paper from my stash, I used my Martha Stewart small circle cutter to cut out the images that was of course colored w/Copics. This is a small easel card measuring only 4 1/4" wide. I think Martha Stewart has some of the best Halloween stickers and most of these are from her line. The only one that isn't is the "skull and crossbones" which are from Jolee. The sentiment (I made it up myself)  ribbon was cut using a Spellbinders die (gifted to me by the amazing Regan) to cut, emboss, and stencil. It's hard to believe I didn't use any bling on this card but I did use quite a bit of Stickles and glitter glue. There are Stickles/glitter glue on hat band, broomstick handle and straw. Doesn't Little Honey look like she's having fun?

I just realized I didn't post last week's card. Here it is!

This card was especially simple. The sexy redhead was colored w/Copics and features two different colors of glitter cardstock--the background mat and the "moon" Once again I used a Spellbinders die to cut, emboss and stencil yet another one of my original sentiments. I'm so proud of myself for using brads. I have quite a few that I never use!
