Day 5 - 31 Days of Halloween!

Hello Hello! Welcome to DAY 5! You guys are doing a wonderful job so far and I'm so glad you've all joined us this year.

For my Day 5 post - I went a little more simple & soft and made a card using Calypso the rat from Smeared Ink. I screened a fence into the background using my distress inks and also stamped a spiders web into the corders....Then I mounted my Graphic 45 "Hallowe'en" cut-out. The final touch was adding the buttons to Calypso's eyes. Well....I had to make it weird somehow! LOL





Enjoy your hop today! And remember, the hop list is located on my sidebar!

  3. Honestly, I burst out laughing when I saw those eyeballs. Too cute! Goliath brought in one of Calypso's babies this morning about 2:00AM, announcing it proudly with his "I've got something for you" meow. I wasn't really happy to see him. xxD
