My Sheri Crafts Challenge #96

 Hello again!  I hope you are having a great, Autumn weekend!  I love this time of year!  It's cooler, we finally have had some nice rain and the trees are actually showing some color.  I was so afraid they wouldn't.

But it's time for a new challenge with My Sheri Crafts and we are looking for anything Halloween Related.  I've made my first Halloween card this year for one of my grandkids.  It's also the first project I've made with my Imagine Buccanneer cartridge and the first time I've printed paper!

 The "happy halloween" is from Holiday Cakes, but the "Have A" is from Billionaire and I used my Gypsy to weld the letters and make a shadow cut.

 Isn't he a snazzy pirate with his purple feather?  I cut all the layers and pop-dotted them so he has lots of dimension.

 <-  And the inside.  I hand wrote the "Or You;ll" on the sword.  On both mats I used a distressing tool from Creative Memories, inked the edges with Tim Holz "Rusty Hinge" distress ink, then lightly wet the edges and scrunched it up.

What do you think?  I kind of like it and it was lots of fun to make. Now it's your turn!  I'd love to see your Halloween creations linked up at My Sheri Crafts!  Be sure to check out all the Design Team inspiration and our guest designer's beautiful work!
