Everybody is weird...

Good Monday mornin' to ya... hope this new week is off to a good start for everybody. :)

So you may have seen me coloring up these characters on a couple Youtube videos that I posted this weekend and now I've got them feeling right at home on a spooky little Halloween card.
Altering these Greeting Farm images into zombies is actually something that I did for the first time about two years ago but I thought it would be cool to revisit the idea and film most of the process to share with anyone who might be interested in some 'different' skin tone and hair color combos... LOL! You can also find all three videos over on the Color Me Copic blog as well.

Oh! And if you are a fan of the Kid's Quote sentiments from Inkadinkado I am excited to say that they finally have some new holiday themed ones that are available now! There are three Halloween and five Christmas ones that I have come across. As you can see, I've used one of the Halloween sentiments on this card and I just love how they pair up with cutie little kid-like character stamps. Now if only Inkadinkado would pull their past retired Kid's Quotes out of the vault and re-release them as some more clear sets I would be a VERY happy camper! :)

Between the fun sentiment and my little zombies it didn't take much else to finish off this card. A couple spider stickers with some faux webbing that I created simply by pulling apart a cotton ball and a stamped spooky tree in the background and this one was done... or should I say "done for"? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Alrighty, stay classy San Diego!
