Spooky Thanks

Well, between getting Christmas cards ready for an upcoming fundraiser and life in general, I did find time to break out one of my newest (okay, my only) Hallowe'en set for Bethie's stamp challenge. Thank heavens for long weekends.

Each week over on the Papertrey Forum, we're given a choice of three PTI stamp sets to get the mojo flowing. Since my last PTI order included Hocus Pocus paper, I naturally chose Tiny Treats: Hallowe'en .

I realized after the fact that I forgot to colour Frankenstein, so I added a bit of green for hair and a sickly beige for the skin before Frankie went postal.

The inside and envie got almost as much love and attention as the outside.

I can't wait to see which sets are chosen for next week's challenge. Sketch challenges are great, but having to work from a short list of stamps was awesome. The focus really helped. Thanks for the inspiration & motivation.

Have a spooktacular day friends!!

Stamps: Tiny Treats: Hallowe'en, All Booked Up (PTI)
Paper: true black & Hocus Pocus (PTI), white (Neenah)
