Getting Spooky at The East Wind.

Good morning! Can you believe we are halfway through October? I can't believe it! Let's see... what's been going on? Bailey played a Lacrosse game on Saturday and they really got beat badly. But the girls played hard all the way through. So proud of them! There are only a couple of more games to go for the fall. Bailey seems to really like it though and she will keep practicing through until Spring. That's about it. I was feeling rotten all weekend... glad we are halfway through the week now. And yesterday... I thought it was Wednesday all day!!! Ughhhhhhhh I hate that!! LOL But!! It has been a good week so far at work. My desk is clear, I'm all caught up and my email box is manageable!! Hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week!

Today we are staring Challenge #17 with a theme of The Spooks Come Out At Night at The East Wind! Here is what I have come up with for this Challenge.. can't wait to see yours too!!

So, for this one I chose to use Lucy Loo Vampire Queen. LOVE HER!!!  You can find her at The East Wind Shop. I colored her with my Copic Markers. I cut the coffin shape with the Silhouette Cameo. I also cut the embossed paper and the Happy Halloween with the Cameo as well. I lined the edge with red twine. Thats it.. No decoupage.. pretty simple card. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with!!!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Blood, Tears and Tattoo: R22, R24, R46
  • Skin: C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
  • Dress: W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9; T3, T5, T7, T9
  • Eyes: T3, T5, T7, T9
  • Hair: R22, R24, R35, R46, R59
