Have A Be-Witching Good Time

Happy Friday sweet friends.  We've finally made it to the weekend ... yeah!  For those of you that know me, you know that I love Halloween ;)  I love making Halloween cards and I love decorating my house and yard for it too.  October 31 also happens to be my daughter's birthday so it's one of my favorite days of the year.

I thought I would make my daughter's birthday card with a Halloween theme this year so I chose this beautiful image called Witches Cauldren.  Isn't this one of the prettiest witches you've ever seen?  No long, ugly nose and warts for this chick lol!  She's colored with copics and colored pencils and I used a black glaze pen on her buttons.  There's a bit of Star Dust Stickles on the heart on her hat but it doesn't really show up in this picture.  I used some cheesecloth behind the image and inked the edges of my papers.  I added some twine and a little charm.  The sentiment is from CC Designs Halloween Sentiments set and I thought it was perfect for this image.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Hugs, Anita
