My First Ever Scary Card

I just had to do a quick post today to show you my first ever scary card.  For my entire crafting career, I have either made for the church (absolutely NO creepy stuff allowed!) or for my young children.  Now that I have teenagers, I HAD to buy the new Tim Holtz Halloween Blueprint set!

Tim Holtz Skull

I didn't do much decorating on the card because teenagers really don't care.

I did ruin the scary effect by using this stamp on the inside...


This is from an Inkadinkado set that is all humorous tombstomes - perfect for my sarcastic teen!!

Gotta run - I'm actually being social (that's unusual).  I have a dozen ladies showing up in an hour for a luncheon.  And...if my husband - who has been sent on an emergency trip to the grocery store for onions - gets home while I am typing - this would be MY tombstone!!

LOL--I never do scary stuff either, but this is pretty "artistic" and humorous, so it's not too high on the scary meter!

Scary Halloween cards are so fun! That's a great skull stamp and the tombstone sentiment is a real hoot!

Holy smokes, that is a great card; more funny than scary, but great however you look at it!

Girl, I hear you on the not getting caught playing in cyberspace when the IRL world is expecting you to be in it! I'm sure you provided a wonderful and fun luncheon for your real world lady friends!

Now, welcome back to us, bwahahaha!

I just love this card, and now I need the set even though it is over. Well, not really. Halloween has been "postponed" until Monday here in NJ. Great excuse to make this purchase. Hope you got away from the computer before your husband came home with the onions!
