Today is my DT Day over at Meljen's Designs and so I'd like to share with you a Halloween card I made for my Mom. My Mom is 80 years old, but she is a "Young Girl in a Great Grandma Body"! Mom loves to be around people and looks forward to any opportunity to have some fun. Halloween has always been one of her favourite holidays...she has always dressed up in a costume just to hand out candy and she loves seeing all the little children in their costumes; she even buys a disposable camera to take their pictures! This past year Mom has moved into an apartment building that doesn't allow "Trick or Treaters" and that has made her a little sad. So to brighten her day I thought I send her this card along with a box of her favourite chocolates.
Here is a close up shot to show how I raised up the Pumpkins using foam squares.
What do you think? I'm thinking this will bring a smile to her lovely face.
The DPs are by Bo Bunny and the sentiment is a rubber stamp I got at Michael's [in the $ Bin]. I added some faux stitching and some distress inking to the edges. The 3 small pumpkins are actually buttons. The digital pumpkin images are of coarse by our talented Melissa and you can find them right here in the shop. The frighten one is called "Surprized Pumpkin" and the other one is a new image called "Top Hat Pumpkin". Both of these images were fun and easy to colour up. I also used a Tim Holtz's die [along the bottom edge] and a Whimsy Stamp die [around the sentiment]. A pretty orange gingham bow helps to tie this card all together.
Well, that's it for me for today. I hope you have a blessed week and don't forget about our Meljen's "Sketch Challenge" going on right now...we'd love to see your take on it.
