Witching Hour on Halloween

     This is a little different from my normal style (if I even have one) because there's no colored image, just die cuts.  But that makes a card which is not only CAS but very easy to mail with very little bulk.

     The witch hat and the corner spider web are both cut with Cheery Lynn dies.  On the hat, I added the hatband by inserting a tiny scrap of dp.  The clock is cut with a Die-versions die and I had to actually place the clock hands onto the face myself so that it was almost midnight.  That took some skill with teeny-tiny tweezers!  ;-D  I mounted the clock onto 'linen' embossed CS before adding it to the card front.  

All of the shapes were cut from small scraps, ready to go in the waste bin but saved from that fate by the dies.  :-D   The sentiment is also a scrap but ribbon, not paper.

     The weekend is right around the corner and will be here before you know it.  We've already started the season when the weeks fly by faster and faster and we're all going to get caught up in the holiday rush with so many things left to do.  But maybe you're already ahead of the game.  If so, Happy Stamping.  :-D  NanaConnie
