Carve 'em...

It's that time of year - Halloween - always such a fun time of year! I love this image from Hambo Stamps - Pumpkin Trio - but what makes it really great? The sentiment I used, "Carve 'em if you've got 'em (Happy Autumn)", gotta admit, the sentiment makes me chuckle!

Our kids LOVE to carve pumpkins...too ooey gooey and yucky for me, but my hubster and the kids can play all they want in that goo!  HA!

I used The Sweet Stop layout (#129) - it's an older layout making the rounds again and it's a good one!



I colored the pumpkins with Copics and sponged around the edges with VersaMagic ink. I used a yellow Spica glitter pen on the eyes (although tough to see in the photos). I used a black multi-liner pen to create the faux stitching and those lime green sparkly gems? I have had them F-O-R-E-V-E-R - love them and thought they were a fun touch. And I mustn't forget, I added "googly eyes" to my little spider...he's kinda cute eh?

The paper is last year's MME, "Boo to You".

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great weekend!

... happy halloweenie to you ....


Hugs, ~M.
