Cute Card Thursday #83 - Spookfest / Just Magnolia Challenge #26 - A Sketch By Mina / Magnolia Down Under #24 - Trick Or Treat
Here is my card for 2 Magnolia Challenges and Cute Card Thursday. Over at Just Magnolia they have a beautiful sketch from Mina. Down at Magnolia Down Under they are looking for Trick or Treat cards and Cute Card Thursday is having a spookfest. I just love Halloween. Monday was Thanksgiving here in Canada, and I cooked a nice little turkey with all the fixings. The bird took 6 hours to cook, which gave me time to make this card. My 13 year old son decorated my table below, which made a great background for the picture of my card. I used this magnolia image from my Halloween collection that I bought at Cute Stamps and Cards. I think she's really a pilgrim, which was appropriate for our holiday, but I made her a witch for Halloween. I added her onto some nestabilities and put a little spider web sticker in the corner of that. I put on some orange rhinestones and a spider brad in the spider web. I put some beautiful Nicole Heady ribbon on and a strip of card stock with Martha Stewarts spider web punched out. I embossed the little spider in white glitter. I used some more spider brads and used black stickles to make their webs strings that they're hanging from. I finished it off with some flowers that had yellow rhinestones in them, but I took them off and added black and orange ones to match my card. Here is my table that my 13 year old son set up for Thanksgiving dinner. Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians, happy Columbus day to my neighbourly American friends, and happy Monday to everyone else.
