Broom Rides

     What's the first thing that happens when new crafting supplies arrive in the mail?  We sit right down and make something with them, right?  Well, I had ordered some new dies and they were waiting for me when I got home which that gave me an excuse to do crafting (instead of doing house work and a load of laundry) and this is the result.

     This one is all die cuts and papers so it was really quick and easy.  The card base is made from purple CS which I ran through my "Linen" embossing folder.  The black witch is done with a die from Yvonne Creations and I also used it on the orange frame so the image is inlaid into the frame instead of being adhered on top of it.

     The pumpkins were created with a die from Die-mensions.  I used Fiskars corner punches on the orange frame, then dug through my Halloween stash for the dp with the spiders and web.  The sentiment came from an old card kit and it seemed perfect for the witch on her broom.

     Oh, yes, the bat -- it was cut from charcoal gray CS with a punch which is so old the brand name has worn off.
