It's Halloween week and I thought for sure that we would be challenged to use orange in our card - nope, not part of the challenge. But........... I did it anyway. Ha!
These are definitely not your typical Christmas colors, but I thought that the red, pink and green would be pretty cool and the fact that the two shades of orange were in there just added to the fun.
The stamps are from an All Night Media set called Snowglobe that I picked up several years ago and it has finally been inked up, or should I say that the creatures were inked up because this week we were to put creatures on our cards.
I've got a slew of Christmas stamps with birds and some other animals too, but I decided that in honor of Halloween I would go with something else and these actually made me think that the dog, cat and bunny were dressed up in their Halloween costumes which would have worked here in New Jersey because we actually had snow on the ground on Halloween!
The sentiment is an A Muse stamp that I picked up at One Little Spark in Tuckerton. I thought that it was kind of playful and matched the playfulness of this card.
So, who will get this out of the ordinary holiday creature creation? I'm beginning to think that I might just have to let HWNSNBP randomly pick the cards out of the box as he addresses them because that is his part of the Christmas card mailing. But before he does that I think that I am going to do a little write-up to insert with these cards to explain what I've been doing all year with the Jingle Belles and indicate what week and what the challenge theme was. That, and I will make sure that each card has an envelope with it because some of them are not standard size. Yep, I'd better get to doing that soon, huh!
So let's go check out the creature creations in the gallery this week. Click here to join me.
