Trick or Treat with Emma (Cute Card Thursday)

Can you believe it's already October 20? Halloween is just around the corner! Our kids have always enjoyed dressing up and going trick or treating around the neighbourhood, but the majority of our evening is spent at our church for our annual Fall Festival. Lots of fun to be had here...games and candy galore! If you live in the Sarnia Lambton area and are looking for a fun alternative, drop me a line and I can give you the info!

I love cute Halloween costumes! For my daughter's first Halloween, she was an adorable little lamb. Now of course, she is all grown up at the age of 9, and cute is just not the way she wants to go...it's gotta be "cool" now! She was a mime last year, which was a lot of fun . She is still trying to come up with an idea for this year. This adorable little Emma image from CC Designs takes me back to when "cute" was still "cool"!

Emma was of course stamped on Neenah cardstock and coloured with...(let's say it all together) Copic markers! The design papers are from Karen Foster and Imaginesce. The ribbon was from the dollar store. I snipped the green cardstock to create grass for Emma to stand on. I pop dotted Emma for some extra dimension. I kept the layout simple, so that the image took centre stage.

I'll be entering this into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, which is calling for "spooky" cards this week. Here's a closer look at Emma!

Hope you all have a fantastic day!
