Happy Halloween

It has been a while since I have posted but I think I have a good one for you today.
Some  time ago, my friend Lisa Minckler and I agreed to swap Halloween pocket letters.  I really had fun doing this but it did take some time.  Lisa has this in her hot little hands now and from her thank you letter I think she really likes it!!!!






It is really quite bejeweled - every where I could I stuck some blitz.  I got my inspiration from the Mexican Day of the Dead and jeweled ornamentation crafts that they do so well.

If you haven't seen any of Anne's Halloween Makes or Sara Emily's haunted house  you really should take a peek - I promise you that you will not be disappointed!

Hi Sandy, this is fabulous, love all the added bling and glitz, especially to the skull, and that skeleton looks so cool with his hat on! Might have taken a while, but so well worth the effort.

A real fun creation Sandy...I love this pocket card and all your Halloween themed creativity.....wonderful xxxxx

Marilyn said...

Fabulous pocket letter! I have never managed to do one of these but if I ever did, I'd want it to be like this. These are the most un-scarey and glamorous ghouls I've ever seen. Love all the sparkle, glitz and gems. The ones you have 'split' look amazing in different sections and I am in awe of your creativity.
Really do like this a lot and I would bet Lisa does too.

MaryH said...

I've never made a pocket card (and I don't journal either)...so I'm very impressed with this project. And of course your recipient had to love it. Lots of wonderful little vignettes of interesting spooky bits and I especially like the way you've handled the 'rows' to keep the main image the way that you've done. Great job, and hope you've been keeping well. TFS

Sue said...

Wow Sandy this is gorgeous, I love the glitz and the glam, and Day of the Dead is such a fun theme for this time of year.

My name is Erika. said...

I love this Sandy. I like how it almost looks like a mosaic. Are those little gemstones around each image? Happy day late Halloween. Hope yours was fun. Hugs-Erika

Darnell J Knauss said...

It's clear to see why Lisa is thrilled with your creation, Sandy! You are another very talented Halloween designer like our friend, Annie! I have to tell you: I was smiling and eyeballing all the jewels around your skull and then my eye casually moved to the right and I startled right out of my seat! That flippin' spider looks REAL!!!!!! Hugs, Darnell

What a fabulous blingy Halloween pocket letter - I love the skull with the glowing eyes, and the pearly gems framing the images - brilliant! I've missed Lisa's fabulous projects and delicious humour - do hope all is okay with her.
