Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

Here I was getting ready to start a new collection of technique pages and I realized it was Wednesday. I had nothing going on this afternoon so I went on SplitCoastStampers and thougth I'd check out the Sketch Challenge for today. And if I liked it I would play. "If" I liked it. LOL How funny is that? I like them all. It's called a challenge and the more you don't like it the more you NEED to do it! But I always seem to like them, except for the totally square ones. That's just too much of a challenge for me. I don't venture out of the box too much when it comes to those. I have made square cards but I prefer to make "regular" size ones!.

For today's challenge I thought I would make a Hallowen card. I know it's still August and Halloween is a little over 2 months away. SO I guess it's close enough time wise to make the card a Halloween one! I LOVE Halloween "stuff." Cards, window decor, wall decor, costumes, the music and the scary movies too!! But only if I watch them at home, NEVER in the theater!! I'm too much of a chicken!!! LOL

I was at Joann's today and they had Halloween stuff out. I even found some dollar Halloween clear stamps there. And of course I had to pick up some!! They even had a cute Thanksgiving one for a dollar too. And yes, I had to buy that one too! I didn't find what I was looking for there so I had to go over to Michael's (just across the highway from Joann's)and I didn't find what I wanted there either. UGH!!! But I did see that they have Christmas stuff already on the shelves!!! Can you believe that??? Now that's just a little bit too early for me and no, I didn't buy anything Christmas there!!

Ok, onto the Sketch Challenge for today. The stamp is from Penny Black. Isn't it cute??? It's a pretty big tone too. 4-1/4 x 2-1/2". I am going to be selling it after the holiday weekend. I'm hoping to get at a lot of my stamps that are just sitting around here and get them in my store.

Back to the card. I used the new Stampin' Up! decorative paper "Ghostly Greetings." I LOVE all the sheets of paper in the back and both sides too!!! Sometimes you run across one that you don't like one side or the other. Well, NOT in this pack!!! Gotta LOVE that!!

I added a few bat and ghost brads that I had and I found the pumpkin and witch hat ribbon I had sitting on the shelf!! Cards are SO easy to make when you use decorative paper!!! There's a LOT less to clean up too!!! LOL

I'll be drawing for the Technique Pages Blog Candy tomorrow.

Thanks SO much for stopping by,
