Magical Monday - Halloween Color Challenge

This week over at the Paper Cupcake's Challenge Blog; There's Magic In The Air. This week Ildiko Cseh brings us the challenge. She wanted us to make a card or project using a Halloween theme using the colors green, orange and black.

I made two cards using the image "Aye Aye" & "Halloween Tickets" by Paper Cupcakes, which by the way "Aye Aye" is a freebie this week over there. I used my Bic Mark-its to color the image, except the blue on the ghost which I used a copic. I used scraps except for the base of the cards.

On this card I made my first medallion and love how it turned out. I certainly will be making more of these. The border punch is Martha Stewart and the little frogs are stickers from K&Company.

The border punch on this card is also Martha Stewart, but only the edge of the punch. The spider's my mom punched for me from one of her Martha Stewart punches too. I added some eyes to them and they became my "sugar bugs".

Well, it has been a tough week with the death of one of our dear friends at church who also taught at the school our children attend. Our children had him for a teacher and he will be so dearly missed. He taught there for 33 years and touched many lives and the children just loved him and he loved them and it was well reflected in their lives. So for now we will find comfort in knowing where he is and the great memories we hold of him. Make it an awesome week and make sure you count your blessings.
