Are You Out of Your Gourd?

Hope you’re not tired of Halloween cards cause I have a few more up my sleeve!  This one is perfect for a friend who has somehow talked me into a Cross Fit class.  Maybe I’m the one out of my gourd because I actually agreed 😉

The image is another of Elizabeth Dulemba’s coloring pages, colored with my Promarkers and shabbied (if that’s even a word) it up with Distress Ink in Antique Linen.  I’ll be linking this card up to E’s Gallery.  The card sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC.  Paulette has the best sentiments ever.  She generously shares a few freebies a week and has a ton of goodies in her store.  This one just cracked me up!!!  I’ll be linking this to her Show It Off party too.  Both images were imported into the Silhouette software and cut as a Print & Cut.  I use that feature so much now that I don’t know what I’d do without it.

The paper I used is super old Making Memories paper from my stash.  The label shapes are from the 4 Halloween labels again at the Silhouette store.  I have other label shapes… I swear!  These are just so perfect for Halloween cards especially so I can’t help myself.  A little orange and white twine, messy inking of edges and viola!  Done!

I’m entering this card in the Crafty Calendar Challenge for October’s Halloween theme.

  1. Karen I saw your card on Elizabeth Dulemba gallery, I love your card and the play on words sentiment


    • I’m glad you liked it! With the friends and family I have, I can see me using that sentiment frequently! 😉 Create with TLC frequently has funny sentiments as freebies. I’ll have to use a couple more… they make me smile every time I read them. Thanks for the kind words!!!


  2. Karen, I can’t resist – I just love this card! I’ll be featuring it in my November 12, 2013 Coloring Page Tuesday newsletter! Again, if your commenters are not subscribed or would like to find more coloring pages, they can visit http://dulemba.com/index_ColoringPages.html .
    Cheers and happy creating!
