Meet Hazel, Webster & Thurston



Hello and welcome to the first day of the Sweet November Stamps September previews.  I hope you are ready for more cuteness from the amazing Amy Young.  She has created 6 fun Halloween images for you to play with, just in time for some spooky cards, or projects.  You will be able to purchase them at the All That Scraps store on September 8th. 

Today we are going to showcase 2 of the 6 images.  Be sure to head over to Amy's blog for all the details on how to win some candy for each of the releases.  You'll also want to check out Nancy's and Rachel's blogs and leave comments.  I know Amy will be so pleased if you did and she just might give you an extra chance to win for each comment left on all of our blogs, but don't take my word for it, pop on over to Amy's blog for ALL the details.

Now on to the previews...  The first image is an adorable witch named Hazel.  She has big beautiful eyes, curly black hair, a gorgeous smile, and green skin!!  She also loves spiders or anything creepy crawly, but mostly spiders.  Her very best friend, and pet, is named Webster.  He's a spider that knows how to hang around, especially with his BFF, Hazel.

Decked out in their glittery outfits they are both ready for some trick or treating, but will Webster's older brother "Dictionary", let them go without him?  Only time will tell if there's any more room on Hazel's hat for that big guy.


Well whatever they decide I'm sure it will be tons of fun.  Here is Hazel, Webster & "Dictionary" getting ready to go trick or treating, hope you like it.

The sentiment stamp is from TCP, I thought it was so cute for this card especially stamped on that cool purple paper.  I wish you could see the spider patterned paper,  I stickled the spiders to make them look like twinkly little buddies.  I hope you like!

Next up is Thurston, no not Howell the II from Gilligan's Island!  Thurston The Vampire sillies!  (hahaha)  Now this little guy is all business with his slick hair, pointy teeth and scare tactics! 

Thurston the Vampire

One of his goals in life is to be able to see his reflection.  Now we all know that once you become a vampire you give up your rights to see yourself again.  He's always hoping to get a glimpse of himself in the mirror.  In this scene it's no different.  Here he is once again in the art gallery where the only mirror in his mansion hangs. Unfortunately the mirror disappoints him again and he is not to happy about it.   The pets on the wall are totally getting a kick out of his reaction.   Aw poor Thurston, I guess he'll just have to be a man and remain unscathed by this set back.  Maybe one day he'll realize that being an immortal vampire does not have all the perks you'd expect.  I wonder who dresses him?  He's so well taylored.  hehehe..

Well folks what do you think of the first day's previews?  Don'tcha just love what Amy has up her sleeve so far in the form of Halloween fun?  I sure do!  Don't forget to leave a comment here because I'd love to hear what you all think of my first two cards and  then if you haven't already, head on over to the original Sweet November ladies: Amy, Nancy & Rachel.

Mahalo for stopping by!  Come back tomorrow for two more previews.  Have a great day!
Hugs,
Leanne
