So here is our sketch for this week!



And here is my Googly Ghouls card…yes…one more time!  This time I combined it with a little bit of punch art!  My Punch Class made this cauldron last year around this time!  But…see the little eyeball in the bubbles?  Isn't that SPOOKY fun???



So…here are the deets!


  • Base card is Pumpkin Pie cardstock
  • Layered on Elegant Eggplant that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Spider Web folder, then highlighted with White Frost Shimmer Paint
  • Cut the gray polka dot banner strip from Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP
  • Punched a 2 1//2" Circle of Pumpkin Pie cardstock
  • The cauldron is from the Decorative Label punched from Basic Black and the legs of the cauldron is the Owl Punch turned upside down.  I sponged around the edges with White Frost Shimmer Paint.
  • Bubbles are the cupcake punch frosting punched from Very Vanilla and sponged with Lucky Limeade
  • I added an eyeball made with the 3/8" Circle Punch and 1/4" Circle, with the Googly Eye inside
  • I stamped the witch and bat from Googly Ghouls in Basic Black, colored with Stampin' Write markers and cut out, adding Googly eyes to each.
  • Finally, I stamped Happy Halloween from Teeny TIny Wishes on Lucky Limeade and cut a flag end on it.


Isn't that a FUN card?  I love it!
