Boo! Can this cute little Good Witch scare you? MMSC22

Well, as hard as it is to believe, 3/4 of this year has passed us by already, and that means that Halloween is just weeks away now.  How cute is this little girl trying to scare someone in her sweet little witch costume?  I just adore these Gurlee Girl images that our sponsor Chelsea has given us the opportunity to work with this month.  I have really had fun creating some cute cards with them.  Thanks for a great month, Chelsea!  Would also like to recognize and thank our weekly sponsor:  Simon Says Stamp They have been very generous to us and are so wonderful to work with. 

Maybe not so fitting with the front of the card, but couldn't resist paper piecing some pumpkins and a crow and using my new Martha Stewart fence punch for the inside of my card.  I made an envelope to match this as well, but I always seem to forget to photograph it for my post. 

I hope you have enjoyed my card this week as much as I have enjoyed making it to share with you.  I always appreciate you thoughts and comments, so please let me know that you stopped by for a look.

Have a great day, and will be looking for your entry to the MMSC this week!

Oh my, Carolyn, this is one sensational Halloween card!! That Gurlie Girl image is just the sweetiest and I love the way you have colored and glittered her! The inside of your card is to die for. The MS fence punch is certainly perfect for a Halloween card.
