Jingle-Balls...jingle all the way!

I'm supposed to be posting Halloween cards but I think I'm done with them, I know 1 more day but really, I'm so done with it. I really didn't make a lot of Halloween cards and for some reason I can't get into it this year... I don't know why. I'm not even looking forward to trick-or-treating with my daughter tomorrow...sad, I know! The weather forecast here in Gilroy states that it's going to rain tomorrow night, I am looking forward to raining, but of course the kids are not... I'm such a party pooper...LOL! Atleast, I'm admitting that!

Well, this could be a Halloween card...right?!? They're snowballs dressed as snowman and they're ready to walk around the neighborhood tomorrow night. Main image is from Whipper Snapper Design, Jingle-Balls and was stamped on Whisper White card stock, their hats were stamped again on a separate card stock, cut-out and raised with stamping dimensional. The ground are covered with Liquid Applique and some Crystal effects. The patterned paper is from Stampin' Up DSP Holiday Thyme from last years collection. This sketch is from Amy Rysavy of Prairie Paper & Ink.

Stamp: Jingle-Balls from Whisper Snapper Design

Paper: Whisper White and patterned paper is from Stampin' Up DSP Holiday Thyme

Ink: Versafine Onyx Black and SU reinkers

Accessories: Crystal Effects, Crystal stickles and Stamping Dimensional

Beautiful card Catherine! You live near my brother. He lives in Gilroy too. We should met up one day when I visit him. Would love to see all your work. I love Halloween. Mainly cause of the candy.heehee. With the way the economy is going, who knows if anyone will be passing out any. Sad :(. My family bought lots of backup candy just incase. Happy Haunting.

This is SOOOO cute!

I too was hoping for rain:) I don't feel like answering the door and turning kids away. My kids are allergic to nuts and recently found Han was also allergic to eggs and red dye as well. SO no candy for them ... I am having a cook out with my family. Movies and games and stuff. TP daddy and make him a Mummy:) Stuff like that. Hope you have an better time than you expect to :) HUGS!!!
