Hey, Ghoulfriend!


Have you played along yet with this month's Ribbon Carousel Challenge?!  
Our challenges are now monthly challenges with a big 'ol prize at the end for one lucky challenge participant....a ribbon carousel!!

This months theme is Halloween Spirit!!

    For my card, I started by pulling out all of my halloween goodies and just using what "spoke" to me.   I {heart} creating with halloween papers and embellishments and kick myself each year for not doing more spooky/fun cards and projects.

   The designer papers are from My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found Halloween)...I LOVE these papers!!  The spiderweb die is from Cheery Lynn Designs and the canvas fringe I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  I then used my Janome Sew Mini and machine stitched the image and paper panels.  A Jolee's white resin pumpkin sticker sits atop a bit of Black Cotton Twill from the Ribbon Carousel cut into a fishtail.  For the last month I have been dying (pun intended) to color this image from Saturated Canary - Zombie Niamh and she did not disappoint....I even used a bunch of Copics colors that have been sadly neglected.  


Skin: YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91, G20, YG21
Hair: BV00, BV02, BV04, BV08
Eyes: E49, E44, E42, BG09, BG0000
Clothes: E17, Y26, YR24, YR31
Shoes/Cat: W7, W5, W3, W1


I hope my creation has inspired to you play along with us this week at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog Remember, your creation can be anything you'd like, just be sure you use ribbon, bakers twine, lace, thread...(anything that comes on a spool) on your card or project.







Thanks for stopping by today!!

Thank you so much for sharing this post I like you post I also share with you some tips hope you like Many businesses require identification badges to enter their buildings. These ID badges usually are attached to a bland, solid colored retractable reel. Keeping the ID badge on a retractable badge reel saves the employee from losing their badge due to falling out of their pockets as the reel attaches to the badge and the employee's jacket, pocket, or anywhere else on his clothing. Make a monogrammed badge reel to bring a bit of your personality to your identity badge.ID Badge Reels

All of your makes while I have been away are amazing, Wendy! And I love this one too - your colouring is breath taking as usual!

Thanks for sharing I like your post This one is probably the most important tip I can give-if your face is tense, you'll look tense, especially around the mouth and eye areas. This causes the 'pursed lips' effect that is unflattering on everybody, and that is seen many times on ID cards. Employee ID Badges
