Witchy Fluffles

Clearly I am done with summer, at least as far as crafting, because all I seem to be capable of making lately are fall & Halloween cards!! Can't help it....I just love the colors....& all the fun images.....like this one!!



I just adore Fluffles....I think I have all of them, lol. I colored this cutie with my Prismas & gamsol & used lots of oval Nesties to cut it out. The papers are SU's Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Green Galore & the pattern papers are Doodlebug. I bought them a couple of years ago & these were my last little schnibblies. I'm sure they are long discontinued, & the wonderful scrap store I bought them at closed earlier this year. I will miss them.....**sniff*..... I used my Martha punches....the web border, the web corner (under the flowers), & last year's bat. I added Harvest Orange Glimmer Mist to everything. At first I just sprayed the image, but then the background papers looked too white so I just spritzed them too! Can't have too much Glimmer Mist in my opinion!




A close up of the impish Fluffles...





A pic of the inside....nothing special....just used the same papers, Nesties & I stitched the edges.


And lastly, for your enjoyment, a picture of a little visitor we had on our patio door.......




It was really hard to get a good picture because of the glare of the door. He was actually more green. We usually get a lot of walking sticks during the summer, but this was the first one I saw this year. We usually get tree toads clinging to our door too, but I haven't seen any of those this year. It's been a crazy summer as far as the weather goes, so maybe that has something to do with the lack of critter visits!

Thanks for all the congrats yesterday regarding my dt position for 7 Kids College Fund! Tab has an amazing store & I'm so completely honored that she asked me!! I've been walking around with a silly grin on my face ever since, lol!!

Enjoy the rest of your week!! We have our Open House at school tonight, when we meet the teachers, drop off supplies & get pictures taken. School starts next Tuesday. I am so ready & despite what they say, I'm pretty sure my kids are too!!

GREAT card! You are putting me in the Fall mood, too, now. LOL! But that's not a bad thing since there are a lot of birthdays in the Fall in our family.
I love Fluffles' expression! And the FROG! He is really making sure that he doesn't wind up as part of the "stew! I also like the black ribbon with the green bow. The black makes the green really stand out nicely.

Oh Michelle, SOOO CUUUTTEEE!! I'm loving the fall colors too, and the webbing you added to your card looks awesome! That's too bad about your scrap store. :( We're finally getting a Hobby Lobby about 25 minutes away, can't wait! I haven't seen a walking stick in a long time, they are such cool little creatures! And...CONGRATS on the DT news, they are lucky to have you!! ~Hugs
