Crafty Secrets Halloween Cotton Scraps


Happy Card Making Day ~ I think it was yesterday...but to me, everyday is Happy Card Making Day!
Good Morning Everyone! The weather here is just beautiful, it's fall and it is cool outside. This is my favorite time of year. I have all of my Halloween candles lit and the house just smells like Autumn. Today I am cleaning house and even though I am not in the mood (whoever is?) I will be very happy tonight when the deed is done.
This card is one of my favorites and I am quite sure you will all like this one. I used SU's Gable Green cardstock. The Halloween DP is from Hobby Lobby. I used SU's Pumpkin Pie and cut it with my pinking (sp?) scissors. Then I cut out the Jack-O-Lantern from Crafty Secrets Cotton Scraps with the pinking scissors. Glued the Cotton Scrap to the Pumpkin Pie cardstock and popped it up with dimensionals. I used glitter dots and ribbon that I have had forever. The little pumpkin button was a real button that I used cutting off the back gluing it to the corner at the bottom. I love that pumpkin...besides the Crafty Secrets image, that's my favorite part of the card.
Hope you enjoy! I wish all of you could have such beautiful weather. Thank you for your comments, I appreciate every single one. Wishing you a great week ahead!

I LOVE your Crafty Secrets card and their line of stamps and vintage items. So beautifully done!

I just love autumn-scented candles. Autumn scents (from Yankee Candle) are my favs...Harvest, Spiced Pumpkin, Macintosh Apple...yum-o! Now I need to go light one, too. :)

This is just too darn cute Velta! I was wondering where you had been, it seems like your link on my blog won't change when you post anything new. It still has the original post there from 5 months ago. LOL, I know you have been creating. Don't know why it won't change to the new listing. Love this card my friend! TFS

Hugz, xx
