Halloween Stocking FMS7







It has been a yucky day here in Kentucky temperatures are falling and it has been raining all day. The Weather Channel is predicting a high tomorrow of only 47...YIKES I am not ready for it to be that cold. I came straight home from work and made some cards to brighten my day and help me try to forget that I will be freezing tomorrow lol.

My oldest daughter LOVES Tim Burton films and her favorite is Nightmare before Christmas. When I checked out Rita Wright’s adorable Stocking Christmas card at Freshly Made Sketches I got the idea to try a Halloween stocking in honor of Jack Skellington. I totally cased her card. I used Martha Stewart’s goop punch for the top of the stocking and everything else used on this card is SU. I usually like to make a couple of cards with each sketch challenge I try. On the second card I made for this challenge I used CTMH set Thriller and a CTMH purple jewel for the eye on the skull. The Halloween ribbon is from Michael’s, pattern paper, cardstock and ink are SU. I still have many more Halloween cards to make before next weekend so I will be busy busy in my craft room. Thanks for stopping by!!

This is what I love about a sketch challenge! Two totally different cards!! Both are awesome. The Halloween version of the stocking is great and I really love the skull with the purple eye and the words for the sketch's trio. So glad you joined us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Wow! Two cards and both awesome! I'm a big fan of scary Halloween skulls (weird, I know) and this one is fabulous. I love how you used a jewel brad for one eye! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
