Happy Halloween??

Hmm, I guess it's a sign that I made a Christmas card today instead of a Halloween card!  My family has been anxiously awaiting Halloween so we can start decorating for Christmas!  LOL... let the festivities begin!  We already have our eggnog in the fridge, and all we need is a clean house. {Snort!  Like that's going to happen!}

Today at Paper Sundaes, our challenge is 'For a boy or man'.  I decided to make a man's Christmas card.  Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp, and they are providing our winner this week with a $15 gift certificate!  Yum!


I've used Edwin with Package and Merry Christmas text, both from the Magnolia's Merry Little Christmas 2010, on pre-order right now at Simon Says Stamp!

I think you'll be seeing a lot of these Christmas papers from me this year... the second I saw them, I fell in love!  They are Echo Park's Merry Christmas line.

Copics: Hair- E30, 33, 35, 37; skin- E000, 00, 02, chalk (blush); pants- E34, 35, 37; top- E40, 41, present & socks- YG03, 17, 67

Challenges:
Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Challenge: sketch
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Die Cuts or Punches (I used both)
Simon Says Stamp:  Punch Em
One Stitch at a Time:  Modern Christmas
4 Crafty Chicks:  Punches or Dies
ABC Challenge:  G is for Glitter (his sparkly gift ribbon)
Speedy the Cat's Challenge:  A Holiday Card

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween!
