Happy Aloha Friday everyone!!

It's been a while since I last had a Lilo's Fun Friday post and today I actually have something fun to share. (Make sure to read to the end)  Now I'm not too much of a Halloween cardmaker, but I have loved seeing all the cute images and creations that have been scattered all around blogland and became inspired!  So for LFF #42 I made a Halloween card!  I picked up the new Witchy Wryn from Tiddly Inks and I have to say this little witch is super cute!!  Definitely Too Cute to Spook!


This is probably one of the only times I will color green skin.  (hahaha)  I did a simple design with a couple of layers of cardstock (black & orange) and a piece of leftover Halloween dp.  I distressed all the edges with the side of my scissors then added some black soot ink to give it a grunge look.  On top of all that is some cheesecloth witch looks like spiderwebs to me.  Not sure if you can tell but those are spiders along the side of the card and scattered here and there courtesy of my C.C. Cutters Spider border die from ATS.  The bats are actually part of that die and I didn't want to waste them so decided to scatter them around the card. 

The sentiment, "Too cute to Spook" comes with Witchy Wryn and is perfect for this cutie pie. I printed it out on white cardstock and used two Spellbinders to cut and frame it out.  Distressed the inside with some green and edged with black Distress ink.  Also distress inked the orange frame with the same black ink.  I layered some cheesecloth over the top and added two of the spiders, then popped the last "bat" and in the corner.  If you look closely you'll see some green sparkle on the legs of the spiders, I used Stickles.

Lastly is Witchy Wryn and her two friends.  Not sure you can see but there is a friend hiding in her hat.  I went a bit too close to coloring the frog so after coloring her up with a brighter green I used the Stickles to make her pop.  Now she looks like a pretty jewel instead of the pet she was supposed to be. (eek!)  Witchy Wryn is colored with Copics and I tried my best to work on some folds.  I definitely need LOTS more practice but am pretty excited to have been able to finally color one of the Wryns and place her on a card.  I have definitely missed her and Christy keeps coming out with new ones, I can't keep up!  (hahaha)  I believe I saw a Halloween themed challenge at Tiddly Inks so I'm going to join the challenge.  It's been too long there too.

Well my friends, I just wanted to say a big Mahalo for stopping by and for always leaving lovely comments.  A big WELCOME to you if you're new to my blog.  I don't have too much time lately to stop by everyone's blog, but I'm going to try my best and visit to see what everyone has been up to. 

Have a terrific Aloha Friday and a great weekend!!

LFF #42 Fun: If you can tell me how many times I used the word Witch in my post you'll get something in the mail from me.  Just leave it in the comments section.  If there are more than 1 with the correct answer then I will use random.org to choose a winner.  You'll have until 11:59pm on Sunday to guess and I'll announce the winner on Monday at the top of this post.

Happy hunting!! :)

Hugs,
Lilo
