Sketch Frenzy Friday-More Halloween Treats

Hi Stampers:

It's that awesome day of the week again-FRIDAY!!  And time for more Sketch Frenzy Friday!  Today we have a cute sketch from Maria:
And here is my card based on Maria's great sketch:
As I was making my card, I imagined that my little witch was playing hide and seek and disappeared leaving her boots and hat behind.  I decorated her boots with a little bling-rhinestones, and she is hiding behind the Spooky greeting and her Googly eyes are bugging out trying to see what's going on.  Her little frog friend is waiting for her to reappear!

Here are the supplies I used:

Sketch Frenzy Friday-9/21/12

Hi Stampers:

It's Friday and time once again for Sketch Frenzy Friday!  Today I am the designer and here is my sketch:
I LOVE this sketch, even if I did design it myself.  My only problem was, I couldn't translate it to paper!  So I used My Digital Studio instead.  And I am still on a Halloween kick.  So here is my creation:

I love the colors of Halloween and tried to get all my favorites into this card:  Pumpkin Pie, Gumball Green, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, and Whisper White.   I used the Monster Munchies designer template for the black with pumpkin stars and for the image of the spider cider.  The greeting is from the Spooky Things stamp brush set.  Hope you like it!!

Time to see what Maria is up to, so let's go visit her BLOGWhy not play with us this week?  Just upload to our SFF BLOG.

I used MDS to make the card.  I used the Spooky Treats Designer Series Paper, and Spooky Things Stamp Brush Set.

I wonder what Maria has created for us?  Let's go to her BLOG to see what she's done.  Why not play along with us?  You can get all the details at the SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY BLOG.

Sketch Frenzy Friday-Something Different

Hi Stampers:

Today is officially Sketch Frenzy Friday! LOL!  As if you didn't know that!  Here is our sketch, created by Deb Currier:

And here's my creation:

When I looked at the sketch, I thought about using Thoughts and Prayers, because of the tree.  Then I was looking through all the stuff wonderful items I ordered from the Holiday Catalog, and realized I hadn't used ANY of the Halloween items.  So I thought about the Ghoulish  Googlies Designer Kit--Googly Ghouls stamp set, 20 printed tags, 10 glassine bags, 50 self-adhesive backed googly eyes and 10 pieces of Pumpkin Pie/Whisper White Baker's Twine.  Add some Howlstooth and Scaringbone (don't you just love the play on words "houndstooth and herringbone"?) Designer Series Paper, some Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, and Gumball Green card stock, and we have a winner!!!  The coordinating green is supposed to be Lucky Limeade, but Gumball Green came to hand first, so I used it instead.  Somehow, when I was planning the card, I didn't remember that the scallops went across under the image.  I cut the strip of scallops with the Tasteful Trim die and the Big Shot.

That's it for me.  Now go see what MARIA has created.  And please join us and upload your interpretation of the sketch to our SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY BLOG.
