With Halloween fast approaching I thought it time I posted my card even though I'm just putting in the mail to my granddaughter today. She happens to love (or at least used to) knock-knock jokes or similar things, so I put together a little Halloween humor for her to share with her friends at school. I printed the jokes on orange polka dot paper and made a front/back cover from Black cs, topped with a piece of Halloween print paper. Here's a look at the end result, I think she'll enjoy it. is a picture of the Halloween card made just for her, I'm so happy with this card. The inspiration came from a trip to Archiver's where they had this stamp set on display.

The stamp, I believe is from Hero stamps, the tree branch and the background text is part of the paper. I stamped the lamp-post and cat onto the design paper in black, masked off what I thought would be the lamp-post light and lightly sponged black ink all over the paper, when I removed the mask, ta-da, there was my spotlight on the black cat, how cool is this. Framed the whole piece in black cs and popped it up onto a textured orange cs.

I also spritzed the front of the card, this picture shows the spritzing a little better, as you know it's always hard to capture the RL image, well at least for me.

Thank's for looking...HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
