I Miss the Kids

happy halloween plaque by Beverly Cole

I live in an Active Adult Community. No Kids on Halloween. Maybe next year I need to visit my grandkids and go out with them! Hey...I really like that idea!

Digital Delights is having a release of new items! These cuties are my replacement for the little guys at the door...I am going to hang this in my window.

The image is the new Frankenstein Kiddles. I used classic Halloween colors, which these days includes purple and lime green along with the orange and black. 

There are many adorable works of art on the Digital Delights Blog. Be sure to visit and be inspired, then purchase your own adorable images created by Wendy (alias Louby Loo). The prices are sure right! 

I used some Ranger brand Stickles to make the bolts pop, and melted my stash supplied ribbon with my heat tool. The paper is "vintage" CTMH. I also used my Singer to ziggy zag the edges.

The image is colored with Prismacolor markers. Gems by Micheal's, and metal eyelets from
 American Crafts.

I enlarges the sentiment, also by Digital Delights, to make it into a sign.

I am entering this into some challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - purple, orange, green color challenge
Sketch Saturday - sketch

Bearly Mine - Anything but a Card
