Is a Witch Laugh a cackle?

Hello, hello!
I hope that your week is off to a nice start. So far September has given us some of the highest temps of the 'summer' here in my neck of the woods. So even if I am ready for fall and all of the Halloween fun that comes with it, it sure seems like Mother Nature is taking her time changing the seasons this year. Oh well, there's no rule saying that I can't start making holiday cards in 90 degree weather. ;)

You may have already seen today's card on the ATS blog during previews last week and it features the newest addition to the Laugh Line of stamps by CC Designs. She is one stylin' Witch let me tell ya and I couldn't wait to share her here as well. When I started putting this card together I wanted to break away from simply using another coordinating Halloween line of papers so I challenged myself to pull papers from my scrap bags. They didn't have to be Halloween patterns just the color combo of orange, purple and green. This ended up being a lot of fun to do and heck, I used up some scraps which is always a bonus! ;)
I also used the new CC Designs Spider Chain Cutter not only as a little border but I cut the cute spiders apart to sprinkle, or should I say creep, across the entire card. Heeheehee!

Well, whatever kinds of cards that you are currently working on I hope that you get plenty of time to craft today.

I guess I'll just pretend I am in Hawaii as far as this ridiculous heat goes. OMWord! We took our walk around 7pm Sunday and I was dripping wet from the heat. It was getting super dark by the time we got back but it was still hot then... Anyway, I love your card and your idea of just the plain papers. too cute! She is just adorable and I am really enjoying all these Halloween stamps this year. Love your coloring as always. Hope your day is a great one. No melting! lol... Hugs, Lisa

So adorable!! Love the little witch and all those spiders - eeeek! So glad they are made of paper. BTW, you are so talented with your scissors, too. Can't believe you cutout that little spider that the witch is dangling - great job!
