About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

This card is for the Birdie Brown Monthly Freebie contest. I love this image. It was super fun to color. (Also to be entered into the Delightful Challenges: Halloween or something sweet contest)

Card base is yellow orange card stock. The Halloween candy paper is a printable digital paper from Granny Enchanted. The spider on the right side of the page was fussy cut from some Halloween paper from Recollections. The spider web in the upper left hand corner was hand drawn with a glaze pen. The ghost is a comma from the Cricut Essentials cartridge. The black face and outline were doodled by hand. The "B" was polka dotted and colored with sharpies. The next pumpkin is dressed up as a candy corn. The spider web and spider were on the last pumpkin were doodled with a black sharpie and the eyes were done with glaze pen.

I had a lot of fun coloring this image. I hope you like it!
