Too cute to spook....


Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!

I hope your having a wonderful Wednesday! I didn't have a lot on my agenda this morning so I thought I would try and get some craft time in. Yeah! I wanted to make a card for my dear friend Naomi from Creative Bug on the Loose who had put out a personal request for cards for her son to let him know we are thinking of him. Of course, I wanted to help!

Michael is autistic and will be having surgery very soon on both of his feet. I encourage you to join in and send a card to help lift their spirits and put a smile on that little guys face. You can get all the information HERE about this amazing story.

I wanted to send him a Halloween card and some yummy treats for when he is feeling better. I used the Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangles for the base of my card. The base layer was embossed using the polka dots folder and then inked around the edges with Momento tuxedo black. I then layered another rectangle using papers from My Minds Eyed-Haunted paper pack.




The cute little monster is cut at 4" from the Mini Monster cartridge which I glittered and sparkled him up with some fun black diamond stickles. I pop dotted him to the shadow cut on a shimmery silver paper I had in my stash and then added a wobble. I think Michael will get a kick out of that:)  The cute face on the monster and the pumpkin is from Peachy Keen Stamps~Mini Monster Mash set. I added some glossy accents to the eyes to livin' this monster and pumpkin up:) The pumpkin is cut at 1 1/4 and I hid some of the features using my gypsy so I could stamp the adorable face. The banner is from Spellbinders~Ribbon Banners and the sentiment is from K Andrews Designs Fall-o-ween set.

I am also entering this in the following challenges:
1.) My Craft Spot ~Challenge #74 Little Monsters
2.) DL.ART Thankful Thursday-pumpkin
3.) Peachy Keen Stamps ~Challenge #40- Just cards-Word Up
4.) Die Cuttin Diva's~ Shimmer, Glitter and Gloss

Thanks for visiting,
Sherrie K
