I'M JEN'S SFYTT OCTOBER GUEST DESIGNER !!!

I've been bursting at the seams with this exciting news for quite some time! TODAY is the day that I can finally share this news ... I am Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try October Guest Designer! Oh yeah! Jen's sketches have always been one of my favorite regular challenges, and to be asked to be a Guest Designer is an incredible honor!!!!

Here is one card I've done using today's Sketch For You To Try. Go to Jen's blog, i{heart}2stamp to see the other sketch sample I've created, Jen's sample card, and for all the information you need to play along!

I was completely inspired by Wendy Bond's adorable card HERE. Frankenstein has GOT to be my all-time favorite Halloween "characters"! This Frank image is from the retired stamp set, Booglie Eyes. I purchased the Smarty Pants stamp set just for this sentiment! The designer paper is from Ghostly Greetings, and the striped Perfect Plum panel is from Perfect Plum Patterns.RECIPE
Stamps: Booglie Eyes (retired), Smarty Pants
Paper: Ghostly Greetings DP, Perfect Plum Patterns DP, Basic Black and Whisper White CS (Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie, and Kiwi Kiss CS for the small 1/4" circles behind the brads)
Ink: Basic Black, Perfect Plum, Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie, and Going Gray
Embellishments: Basic Black Brads, Kiwi Kiss 5/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: 1/4" Circle Punch, Blender Pen
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals, Googlie Eyes (non-SU)
