Googly Eyes

I saw this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches last week and attempted to make an owl themed card one weeknight.  It didn't turn out as good as I had hoped.  This morning I woke up early and decided to organize my craft room.  We bought our house three months ago and I still have a few boxes tucked away in a few rooms.  My craft room still had four boxes to unpack so I finally took care of them.  Of course I didn't finish putting everything away before I got distracted and decided to make some cards.  I came back to the sketch and decided to go with a Halloween theme.  

We were out shopping the other night and every store had Halloween stuff out.  My husband kept saying, "Do people know it's still August?" He just so happens to love Halloween so he spent forever looking at all the Halloween stuff.  He is so goofy.  

So, I pull out all of my Halloween stuff... and I am overwhelmed.  Because the hubby likes Halloween, I have apparently stocked up on all crafty things Halloween-y.  I made a witch card using the sketch and when I was done I decided a second grader probably could have been more creative.  So, here it is, take three of my Freshly Made Sketch card.  During this production, I found out that my black ink has died, which is very inconvenient when making Halloween themed cards and a key color is BLACK!  

I continued to stamp all of my images in black and then decided that my BOOOO was fading off the paper, I gave in and just colored it in so you could actually read the sentiment.  My husband loves all the eyeballs, I hope you like it too.
