TRICK OR TREAT, SMELL MY FEET

I haven't posted or stamped ALL week! I'll consider this my warm-up card .. amazing how it takes a few tries to get the mojo back! I'm hoping to get a few more cards designed today before heading back to work tomorrow.

This card uses Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try 09/20/08. I used the stamp set, Batty For You with Ghostly Greetings Designer Paper.


The stitching is from the retired stamp set, All In A Row. I've owned this stamp set for a very long time and this is the first time I've ever used it! I found it quite intimidating but now that I've mastered my Stamp-a-ma-jig I may use it more often! I love the look of stitching in papercrafting and would love to have the patience to stitch with my actual sewing machine. But, swear words tend to spill out of my mouth every time I try to use my sewing machine! LOL!

I added paper piercing within the stripes of the YUM YUM dp and within the scallops of the scallop circle, three Pewter Jumbo Eyelets along the side, and Basic Black 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.
