Halloween Goblins

Whew! Here we are already on the 12th of September! The past week at our house has been a whirlwind of going back to school and figuring out what will work for our new school routine. Over the weekend, we took in a concert, went apple picking, had friends over for dinner, kicked off the new Sunday School year, and celebrated my hubby's birthday. And so far this week has been filled with appointments and hubby's travel for work. So, when I tried to catch my breath, I was surprised to realize just how far into the month we are already! Halloween is just around the corner ;), so I dove right in and made my first Halloween card of the season--one featuring some one-eyed goblins, no less!



I created these too-cute-to-spook guys using DeNami Design's Fuzzy Ball stamp, coloring with colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits, and drawing on long, skinny legs by hand. Each goblin's feet were created by snipping in half a small heart punched from coordinating cardstock. The background paper is some that I picked up at Target several years ago--I just love the colors in it! 

This adorable Fuzzy Ball stamp is our DeNami Featured Stamp this week! It will be on sale at 10% off all week. There are so many ways to use this fun little image! Be sure to check out the DeNami blog today for lots more creative ideas using the Fuzzy Ball.

Thanks so much for dropping by! See you again soon,
Emily

Oh Emily, I love your one eyed monsters! And they would be fun for the kids to create as well.

September is flying along isn't it? I was thinking when September came I would be able to sit back and take a breather but I don't think it's going to happen! Oh well, it's such a lovely month, we have to take in as much of it as we can.

Thanks for sharing your cute design! You have the greatest imagination. (I would never have seen a monster in the fuzzy balls) :)
