How oh how is it October already?  Where has this year gone?  Seriously… I feel like I just blinked and 3/4 of the year is over…..

I love October… it usually means cooler weather… (but lately its still been warm here in SoCal) and I love the spooky decorations for the Halloween season.  I will be missing halloween at home this year… but I am NOT complaining.  I am lucky enough to take a trip of a lifetime to Italy with my amazing friends.  can’t wait for that.  Until then, I am going to try to create as much Halloween decor/cards as possible.

Here is a card using a bunch of the new Tim Holtz Idea-ology products…. what?  no stamping?  lol

For the main image, if instead of using a stamped images, I used one of tim’s new Remnant Rubs – Apothecary.  I love how smothly the rubs transfer onto the paper.  So smooth.

I used the Tissue Tape to create a little border next to the image.  I sure love that new tissue tape… and chevron, too?  I’m in heaven.

And I looooove patterened paper.  When I saw tim’s Laboratorie paper stash, I fell in LOVE. Each piece so beautiful that I had a hard time cutting into it.  LOL  I love love love the smaller prints.  So perfect for card making.

His new Trimmings are awesome too.  So versatile.  You can even in them up for a different effect…. but I loved the black and natural just as it was for this project.

And the perfect findings to finish off the project…. just when I think tim can’t come up with any more cool items, he does.  The word bands are so fun!  I love the larger font in this observations pack. I just added a littler white paint to help the word POP.  And that skull… oh how I love it!  I see some Goonies cards or Pirates of the Caribbean coming! LOL

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy October!
