Creeping By to Say Hi

A new sketch challenge is up over at Skipping Stones Design -- hope you'll join in the fun!

My sample features a set called Halloweenie, on sale all month long for $12.49! Both the creepy spider image (um, arachnophobe here! :shivers:) and the sentiment are from Halloweenie. I isolated just the word "hi" for the star accent and also stamped the full sentiment repeatedly on the scalloped strip. The spider is stamped onto a text print. The papers are all from My Mind's Eye's Mischievous collection.

Here's what we're playing with this week:

And here's a look at Halloweenie (love the "BOO" poem!):
