31 Days of Halloween Day 6

Ok- have to tell you, I am just a touch amused at Alex with this creation. She started out all cute and fun and then, just like she does, she added in just a bit of the creepy.  I don't know how she continues to do it, but one day perhaps she will refrain. 


This cutie is drawn by Elisabeth Bell exclusively for SCACD and is part of the Holiday Peekers collection. You probably remember that just a couple of days ago, Alex took another Peeker and Halloween'ed her up. If not, you can see it here. This one was already going that direction, but could have been a sweet lovable fall card just as easily. At least, with anyone else but Alex using the image it could have been....



Cute image - check
Fun colorful paper - check
Creepy Jack o'Lantern border....- check

Alex used the paper from Best Creations Happy Haunting for this card.  It is a good thing they have multiples of each sheet because I thought Alex was going to lose it trying to decide which paper and which side of the paper to use.  She pretty much loves them all and I think that if her hubby would allow it, she would just put them all up on the wall 'as is'.  Of course, I kept telling her to do it anyway......

The Jack o'Lantern border is created using the stamps from the Teresa Collins Happy Hallows set.  This is the same set that had the hand she used to pop out of the box in THIS card.  (Oh dear, poor Elisabeth Bell is probably going to have a coronary if she ever looks at Alex's blog.)  You will also see a lot more of this set in several other upcoming creations.  If you don't own it, you should.  Oh wait, Alex says NO, she wants to be the only cool one.... whatever!


Happy Halloween!
Edgar
