NBUS #5

Darnell ( and Hammy) are off and running with a NBUS challenge and I have almost missed it!!  It ends this Friday, but check out the details......there is still enough time to squeeze in a card!
 
 
 
Here is my entry for this Challenge. I know it is a wee bit early for Halloween cards and such.......but honestly not just the crafty stores, but many stores already have Christmas stacked right next to the fall/Halloween things.......what happened to Thanksgiving?  Oh I digress..........on to the card.....
 
I had been cutting some long thin cards and had these nice strip left over, and when folded in half made a perfect little card 4" x 4 1/4".  I bought these stamps at the end of last year for a substantial discount ( don't we just love when that happens....*grin*), so they were brought home, stored and forgotten about until I did a little cleaning and organizing.  Remembering that Darnell had posted a NBUS challenge I got them out and had a play with them.  I'm not really big on Halloween cards, but you would not know it by the high number of Halloween stamps I have....LOL  I guess I have just been fooling myself.......or I really do have a DARK side......
 
On the base of the card I used one of the dies(NBUS) from the new TH set....oooooo I do LOVE these, backed the card with black cs.  The candle and the book of spells were stamped, colored with pencil, then fussy cut, adding a glow, of the candle, to the base with TH Distressed ink.  The large web and the spider have been well used.  I could not resist adding the gogglie eyes to the black cs, under the base. I used TH Distressed ink to age the edges, and called it done!
 
Now I'm off to link up with the challenge, get my tennis on and go for a walk while it is still cool outside.
 
PLEASE PRAY FOR ALL OUR FRIENDS IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, THAT ARE EXPERIENCING DISASTERS BECAUSE OF THE RAGING WILD FIRES.  I'VE HAD WORD THAT ONE OF OUR BLOGGER FRIENDS, DARLA, HAS LOST HER MOUNTAIN HOME.  100 MILES NORTH OF HERE MY FRIEND'S PARENTS LOST THEIR HOME.  WHO KNOWS WHEN THIS WILL END AND HOW MUCH MORE DEVISTATING DISASTERS WILL HAPPEN BEFORE IT DOES END.
 
PLEASE, PLEAE PRAY FOR THE BRAVE FIRE FIGHTERS(AND THEIR FAMILIES), IN ALL THREE STATES.  THEY HAVE GIVEN SO MUCH, SOME OF THEM WITH THEIR LIVES.
 
Inky Hugs

  2. Krisha, thanks for your kind visit and comment. I have to return the favor as I think this card is such a creative Halloween card! I LOVE those peeking eyes and that TH die (have it and need to use it more!). I will put the N Cali folks, victims and firefighters all in my prayers.

  3. I was in awe of that card, and I couldn't figure out that those were goggle eyes until you mentioned it. Really clever.

    Yes, I will be thinking about all these people whose homes are now nothing more than a memory. I've been watching the news and was in shock to learn this was the driest year ever in CA, and there is very little relief in sight. It seems this pattern has spiraled out of control, and may top 2013. Thanks for mentioning Darla and her home. I felt SO bad when I read about it.

  6. Ooooh, I love your spookilicious Halloween card, Krisha! The details are fabulous! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #5 ~ which was so long ago now! I know you are aware of my husband's surgery and recovery; nevertheless, I’m sorry that my nursing duties have delayed my visit to thank you. Thank you for your good wishes and prayers! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
