Happy Halloweeeen!!!! and Keep Hoppin"

I couldn't let Halloween go by without making at least one Spook card! The three Spooks on this card are all set to go trick and treating today!!

The stamps I used for this card are from numerous companies.......Magnolia (witch, bat and pumpkin)..... High Hopes - "Frog Prince"........Will n Way - hat on frog prince......Studio G - trick or treat sentiment.

The witch and one of the papers that are showing up in blue are suppose to be Purple...Very Purple!! I don't know why they are blue here...I am hoping when I get my new bulb replacement for my light box I will have purple again in my cards....lol.

All the images are cut out and popped up on foam dimensionals. I cut the crown off of the Frog Prince and replaced it with the little witch hat. I used SU gold cord for the Frog leash that Tilda witch holds.

The glitter on the spider web in real life is not that glittery. I used stickles for the buckle on both witches hat.

The Fabulous SU Halloween papers on this card were given to me by daughter Trina....Thanks Trina!!

Stamps - High Hopes, Magnolia, Will n Way, Studio G

Paper - GP white, Michael's, Treasures CS, Stampin' Up, DCWV

Ink - Versafine, creamy caramel

Accessories - ribbon, cord, lace, brads, stickles, glitter, nesties, stitching

Happy Happy Halloween!! from our "Little Buddy"

He was quite the little poser for these pics.....and he did receive some very nice treats at the end....He knew that too....so was on his best behavior....lol...

Trina bought the little witch set for Buddy.....Thanks again Sweetie from Buddy and Me!!

Lori aka Lo Lo said...

OMG your doggy is sooooo cute!! What kind of dog is Buddy?

xoxo,
Lori

Lori aka Lo Lo said...

Hi Ila,

Yes they do look a bit alike in the face. I am sure if they met Maddi would luv playing with Buddy. Maddi luvs to play with all the dogs she meets. I see your in Saskatchewan. I am in Oakville, Ontario. Do you have any tips on removed those big snow ball clumps off the fur? Maddi experienced her first snow fall last week and boy did she luv it. She was covered in those annoying snow ball clumps. They are sure hard to remove.

Your creations are really nice!! I just started stamping so I hope my cards turn out as nice as yours one day.

xoxo,
Lori

Lori aka Lo Lo said...

I luv your blog too!! Mind if I added your blog to my blogroll? I will have to keep trying to put the boots on Maddi. She hates them. Where did you buy your boots? I would like to find ones that are less bulky. The ones I have are big so I'm thinking if I can find one that's less bulkly she may get use it it faster.

xoxo,
Lori

Lori aka Lo Lo said...

OMG...thx for the sewing pattern!! That's very sweet of you. I don't know how to sew...haha. I will try though. I only know how to sew on my scrapbooking layouts...haha. Can you email a photo of the boots you made so that I can see how they are suppost to look when completed? If you have pix of Buddy wearing the boots that would be fab. My hubby will be so proud of me if I can sew them because he bought me an expensive sewing machine and I don't use it that much...haha. My email is lorittalo@hotmail.com.

xoxo,
Lori
