First Halloween card of the season

 Good Monday morning all.  It has been a very tough time for me the last couple of weeks.  I again lost my job.  The company went bankrupt and was taken over by the trustee which in turn closed the company down.  So here I am again looking at a time that everyone else is and there are only a few to be found.  I'm not afraid to say I am beginning to be scared.  So needless to say I have been a little down and just not in the mood to make anything let alone a happy, sweet card.   I made myself make my first Halloween card.  It really isn't my best work at all but baby steps.. right! 

 I cut the card out of a Sizzix die cut, the paper is old stash but I did use my Spellbinders die to cut the scallop circle.  The image is really two stamps.  In the set there are three you will see the third in a moment.  So I stamped the creepy eyes and nasty fang mouth with Brilliance Rocket Red Pigment Ink.  I chalked all around it with Grey and cut around it then popped it up. 
 So for the inside I just cut more scallop circles and stamped the third stamp from the set BOOOO!  Lastly I took my Whit Gel Pen and drew stitching around the outside.

So I hope you like it and I am going to make myself make more today.
