CCMC217 – Googly Ghouls



It's not too late to join!  We are in Week 1 Over on Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition 2012, and we are celebrating Halloween this week!  So far, we've had some REALLY great Halloween home decor, gifts, wrapping and other specialty projects that are SO much fun and perfect for your classes and stamp camps coming up.  Next week, we'll move onto Fall…then 3 full weeks of Christmas Holiday ideas!  Have you signed up yet?  Why  not?  At $29.95 US for over 30 step-by-step PHOTO tutorials, you can't go wrong!  Check out Create with Connie and Mary today to sign up!


And…on our free site, our Thursday Challenge Team has some cards for you using a FUN sketch!  Come play along!




And, keeping with our Halloween theme this week, I used Googly Ghouls!  I thought I'd have them line up in sort of a Chorus Line…maybe they are singing and dancing to the song, Monster Mash?  lol!



Anyway, Googly Ghouls and the new Googlies Eyes are just TOO adorable!  I am having so much fun playing with them.  This little mummy has got to be my favorite, along with the spider.


The base of my card is Tangerine Tango.  I added a panel of Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP, layered onto Basic Black on the front.   I wrapped around 1/2 Striped Satin Ribbon…love it…and tied a knotted bow.  I cut a rectangle of Basic Gray for my "stage" and some Dotted Scallop Ribbon punched from Basic Black cardstock.  


I stamped three mummies and the spider in Basic Black on Very Vanilla and cut them out and lined them up on front.  I stamped Boo in Basic Black on Tangerine Tango and cut a flag end for the top, secured with a Mini Brad to the front.  Finally, I added the googlies eyes in the spider and the mummies.  They just make me SMILE!


I hope I've made you smile today, too.  So…grab your stamps and come play along with our sketch challenge this week.  And…check out the other Challenge Team Members on Create with Connie and Mary.
