Here's my entry for this week's sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  This is also my one and only Halloween card.

For the ghost, I cut a square of scrap white cloth and pinched it together and tied off with twine.  I cut the letters on the Cricut and hand cut the tombstones after stamping with the SU! Sanded background stamp.

Speaking of Stampin' Up!  I've been dogging their website daily to see if they have added to their clearance rack.  For the last two years, they have restocked clearance in October.  They discontinued a ton of stuff last year and I'm hoping some of it reappears on sale.   When they mark stuff down, they really give a good deal.  If I see more items being added, I'll be sure to post on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. what a cute ghost! I bet he is glad you made 1 halloween card this year! I make cards for my mom seasonally and she refused any halloween cards too! Happy Crafting :) kathi

  2. Lisa, thanks for posting this adorable card. I think it's about the cutest Halloween card I've ever seen. All of the elements come together perfectly to paint a 'friendly' Halloween scene. I'm not much on this particular event every year, but I do enjoy the lighter side of it at times. No sinister, bloody gore for me!

  3. Love this card! I like the tombstones and of course the little ghost.

  4. Lisa, that card is darling. I don't send Halloween cards either. And I too have been stalking the SU clearance rack, I could really use another coupld of post albums to finish up my kids's school years. Good luck to you finding some great bargains.

  5. Your card is wonderful, Lisa, and I especially like that you were able to make this superb Halloween card without special Halloween supplies. Very creative!

  6. this is such a fun card. Love your ghost and grave stones.
