Trick or Treat!!...High Hopes, Stamp with Fun and Magical Monday Challenges!

Wow!!...Thanks so much Y'all for visiting and all your Lovely comments!! I am making my way around to visit everyone...so I should be coming around soon...if I haven't been there yet. I can't get over all the Gorgeous Halloween and Xmas creations everyone is making!!! This last Saturday we babysat our little grand daughter Ellie...(short for Elisabeth). What fun we had...she was so good.. all smiles and chuckles. She has her own special language going on right now too....and it is Super Cute!! Can hardly wait to see her in between visits!! On to my card.... This is my first Easel Card!!! I've always so admired everyone else's and decided it was time to try one. What a fun card to make!! I'm entering it into the High Hopes Challenge which is a recipe this week...1 circle, 2 squares and a scalloped edge. Since.... Stamp with Fun and Magical Monday Challenges are Halloween themed...I'm entering there too!!
I've used High Hopes Fabulous Stamps on this card from their Newest Release..."Witchy Poo Stirring Brew", the bat from "Batty Boo" and "Trick or Treat Greeting"
I've colored the images with copics for a base, prismacolor pencils (oms) and twinkling h20's. As always..remember...never use copics over prismacolor pencils..or tips will be ruined!!
The DP is from last years Halloween Recollections. The punched borders are MS punches.
Have a Great Day Everyone...and Thank You so much for visiting!!!
