Giveaway Goodies and Ghostly Fun

I've got a nice little "stash" of some fun Halloween goodies I'd love to share. 
But you've got to do one thing....leave me a comment HERE or here on this
post today! 

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays....just love the paper crafting collections
that come out, and enjoy making cards, home decor and LOs! 

This card was made with spooky scraps from a few other card projects from the
Creative Cafe' Kit for September at The Rubber Cafe':
You can find all the details over at The Rubber Cafe' blog HERE.

Linnie Blooms Guest Designer: Bootiful Fall Decor

It's time for crisp air, falling leaves, and pumpkins galore!  Ahhhh Fall!

I've created this Halloween banner decoration for my Guest Designer
spot over at Linnie Blooms mom has already claimed it
her collection of holiday

You can find my post up at Linnie Blooms HERE.....and you can also find these
awesome canvas blanks over there in their shop!  They are not just canvas squares...
they have layers inside to make them more durable, and able to be die cut too!  Then
they are sewn together.....absolutely LOVE these! 

The "BOO" sentiment is chipboard letters that I covered with The Rubber Cafe' (TRC)
Scrap Happy Glue, and then used TRC Black Licorice You're So Fine Glitter.  The
canvas blanks were dyed using Dylusions spray ink, then while they were wet, I crumpled
them to give them a more distressed look like you see here:

Then I frayed the edges and brushed them with Adirondack Black Soot Paint Dauber.
I stamped each blank with Black Tuxedo Memento Ink using the Script Stamp from TRC.

Using my WRMK Crop-A-Dile, I set eyelets, then tied the banner together using
Trendy Twine in the Orange Licorice.  Queen & Co goosebumps finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by for some spooktacular crafting today....are you making any fun
holiday items right now?  Let me know.....I might send some goodies your way to help
you out!
