Grrr!

Hi!  Grrr!--is that what Frankenstein says?  I'm not too sure.  Anyway, I made a second card for Lily Pad Cards sketch challenge sponsored by The Greeting Farm.  My first entry is HERE if you're interested.  Remember the sketch? 

When I first saw this sketch I totally saw a face.  Those knobby things on the side look like ears to me.  But I didn't really think drawing a huge face on a card would look that cute until I thought of Halloween.  And that brings me to my card for today.

Hehehe.  Is he not cute?!  I mean for a monster, he's kind of cute.  But I'm really proud of myself cause I made him with my dies and a couple of punches.  No stamps except for that scar above his eye which is from the mouth of a skeleton face in PTI's Halloween Treats and Sweets set.  His face uses Spellbinders reverse wonky rectangles, and I used my corner punch to round the bottom of his face.  His hair (PTI felt) is made with a partial die cut using the reverse wonky rectangles.  The bottom of his hair uses MFT's grass die but the reverse side cause otherwise you'd just get a strip of hair.  Does that make sense?  Various size circle dies/punch for his eyes and the bolt thingies on the sides of his face.  His mouth is from PTI's rickrack die. 

I had some leftover Bo Bunny Halloween papers from last year.  And the sentiment is cut from one of the papers.  I added some puffy soft spider stickers I've had for too many years now and finally found them a good home.

Thanks for reading!

Too cute! Love that grass hair, eyes and mouth! Argh, don't remind me about Halloween, seems like it will be here in no time. I guess I should start looking for costumes. Maybe Belle will fit this year (crossing my fingers)
