FTTC140 Happy Halloween....

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend? My girls are on fall break and I took yesterday off. The girls and I decided to head down to Tybee beach and enjoyed a gorgeous afternoon walking on the beach, collecting seashells and played volleyball. It was so nice and rejuvenating....I think I need another week off....*wink*!!!

Anyway, I'm excited to be hosting this weeks Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC140. With Halloween right around the corner I figured it would be fun to challenge everyone to create a *Halloween* card/project or both.

Here is what I came up with....





I created my card and gift bag with the fun Witching You a Happy Halloween Set. The pumpkins and hat image were inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with these Copic Markers ~ Y08, YR02, YR04, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5 and Colorless Blender. I have to give the fabulous Leslie Miller credit for the fun pumpkin/hat idea. I saw it on Leslie's card HERE....I thought it was tooooo stinkin' cute and had to try it too. The *hair* was punched out with a MS Leave Punch and I also added a little Black Kaiser Rhinestone in the center of the hat. The bag was created with the PTI Favor Box #6 and I added some matching Tissue Paper. The rest of my card & bag were embellished with *black ink distressing*, some new SU Halloween DP, Black Satin Ribbon, Buttons, Scrapper's Floss and the punched out MS Spiderweb Border.

For more fun *Halloween* ideas please check out the rest of the team ~ Cindy, HeatherTammy,
Beate and Mona. Don't forget our October Guest Designer Rosemary Dennis.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you will have a chance to play along....

                                                                        Hugs, ~Silke~
