Artful Inkables Halloween







Hello all! I hope you have had a great weekend! Mine was a lazy one...I watched horror movies...cleaned a little and went shopping for shoes...I tell you shoes can really be expensive. I really wanted to buy Skechers (sp?)...Geez these shoes are comfy...expensive, but very comfortable....I am planning on a new exercise deal...and walking is one of the best exercises I know.

On to the card...the image on the card is from Artful Inkables...it is one of my all time favorites for Halloween. The coffin is from CC&M...I used DP paper from Hobby Lobby...Heat embossed the house and "Boo" with black embossing powder and then used Orange Stickles for the windows

The stars and moon were stickers...On the coffin I used webbing (angel hair) and the ghost was another image from Artful Inkables...The jack-o-lanterns were also stickers. You cannot see it from this image, but I used Basic Grey ribbon around the sides of the coffin.

Here is wishing you all the best of weeks ahead...Thank you for stopping by to visit and for your comments.

Beautiful Halloween set, Velta! Love the heat embossed image and that darling coffin (hmm....darling and coffin together sounds a bit strange. LOL).

Spooktacular Velta! Love the way you used the angel hair around the coffin, it really looks like spider webs after its been in the graveyard for a few years, lol. You did a fabulous job on both the card and coffin. So glad you finally got a chance to be creative again, had me worried....
And yes, shoes cost an arm and leg right about now!

Hugz, xx

This is such a great Halloween set!! That house is really spooky, and the coffin is a real clever way to give out treats!! I really like the cob-web look on the corners!
It's nice to know we both have a love for good music! I always said if I live to be 90, I'll be sitting in my rocking chair tapping my toes to a good song! Ditto to your thoughts on Bon Jovi - he's aged better than anyone I know!!!

Fabulous image and, oh, that box is so spooky-cute! Enjoy your walks. It's my favorite form of exercise -- out in the fresh air, seeing the sights, the neighborhood, the people. Happy Halloween!
