Boo Hoo Missing You


Seems like the easel card is quite rage right now so of course I had to try my hand at one. I managed to use a bunch of Halloween stuff I hadn't gotten around to playing with like my MS graveyard, scary fence and rat border punches, my CB Spooky house folder and the adorable owl Cottage Cutz die available exclusively at The Scrapping Cottage.

Tell me he isn't the CUTEST! I couldn't resist adding lidded google eyes. The tree he's flying from is actually the branch also included on the die which I cut twice. The moon is a Marvy punch.

Now check out that ghost. I bought some mica tiles at my LSS and had no idea what to do with them so I tried cutting them with my Sizzix Bigz ghost die and it worked. Isn't he cool? I was not succesful trying other dies or punches with this stuff but I was thrilled with the ghost. The tombstone is a Cuttlebug combo and the bats and little ghost are raindots.
I ran a line of large adhesive beads to catch the easel. The sentiment is mounted on Labels Four Nesties. "Missing You" is from the CB Forever Friends cardmaking combo. Wow, not a Cricut cut in sight. Now I'm off to an overnight SWARM. No internet for the rest of the weekend but we sure will have FUN! Wonder if I'll get any crafting done. LOL
