Peachy Keen HALLOWEEN Challenge

Happy Halloween!!

We hope that you will join us for a very quick and simple challenge for Halloween! Please see the details here. I used an unpublished stamp by me. I colored the stamped image and the moon with my Copics. It is hard to tell from the pic but I layered the pumpkins and the tombstone. I also used the haunted house (looks like a castle to me) from Cricut PD and a bat stamp from PK-612. My friend, Lisa sent me a beautiful box of goodies in the mail yesterday.. with the DRIPPY GOO punch that I have been wanting to get and unable to find. She sent me lots of other goodies including a beautiful gourd Jack o lantern lamp! :)KathyJ
