Halloween Anyone?

It's Anything Halloween this week over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog. The DT has provided some outstanding eye candy and inspiration, so be sure to go and check it out.

On Tuesday, I went to Tuscaloosa to help my niece get Coleman's birth announcements put together. Since there are no LSS stores here, you know I'm not going to where there's both a Hobby Lobby and a Michael's without checking them out and with coupons in hand. I never go into Michaels without checking the $1 stamp bin at the front of the store. Knowing that there was a Halloween Challenge over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog, I went looking for some Halloween Sentiment stamps. I found two traditional sentiments right off the bat, but then I picked one up that said "Ghouls Just Want to Have Fun" and knew I had to have it. Then when I got home, I decided to check out the Tiddly Inks Store to see what new images Christy had added. Imagine my surprise when I found this image called Ghoulfriends. I knew it was a sign.
I colored her up with Copics, and she just had to have purple hair. The paper is from KI Memories, and I used my Dripping Goop MS punch to layer some goop and the Inverted Scalloped Circle Spellbinders for some extra dimension and shape. And of course, I used my new sentiment stamp to finish off my Halloween Card. How much fun was this?
