Happy Halloween!

You know, I really can't imagine what it would be like to sit down & make a card, from start to finish, in ONE sitting!! All you bloggers out there who make a few cards a day, & manage to post to your blog every day - I bow to you. I don't know how you do it!!

Well I didn't get to make many Halloween cards this year, which is sad because I LOVE Halloween -- it's my favorite holiday & my favorite card theme. I dug out an older Tilda for this one.....

This is Tilda with Spider - my very first Halloween Tilda. She's colored with pencils -- I have a really hard time working with purple. I never have the right shade. The hat didn't turn out the way I want it to -- the Stickles actually turned my purple pencil PINK! I had to go over it with Black Stickles. Ah well -- could have been worse :)

Other than that, just the usual Halloween-y stuff -- bats -- spider webs -- I died some cheesecloth black -- very spooky :)

I couldn't find any Halloween challenges since I'm late to class again -- but I am entering this into this one:

Simon Says Stamp -- Anything Goes (my favorite challenge, lol)

Well I hope you all have a terrific Halloween -- we are going to the zoo tomorrow. We went last year & had a blast. Sunday is our Trick or Treat -- another thing I *heart*. I'm so glad I have kids -- otherwise I'd have to go by myself!

This is awesome, Michelle!! I love the colors and your coloring is gorgeous as ever! Now that my store is busier, I don't have the time to craft every day like I would prefer. But I do no that some stampers who post cards every day pre-color their images. They color while they watch TV. Personally I am usually updating the website or posting or doing DT work while I watch TV. Actually, the TV is more background noise for me. But I've learned not to over-think a card. It's much easier and quicker if I just find a sketch, pick the papers, color the image, and throw it together. Too many details or over-thinking and a card can take me hours to do! Scrapbook pages on the other hand can take me days to complete!
Happy Halloween!!

Hi Michelle! I love your card and your colouring of this sweet Tilda, a great idea to dye the cheesecloth too, it's the perfect detail. I rarely make a card in one sitting either so you aren't alone in that. Happy Halloween!! :)
