Ah, yes, it's Stampotique Day!  The very talented Kristen Catalano is our host this week at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge, and she is in the mood for Ghouls and Goblins! Here's her challenge:

Calling all Pumpkins, Ghosts, Dragons, and Witches too, we’ve got a SPOOKY time planned just for you!!!!!!!!
I completely LOVE Halloween, and any chance I get to make a spooky project, I will. This week I am challenging you to create a project inspired by Halloween.  Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
For this challenge, I made my Halloween card for my older grandson.  At 14, Justin is full of...well, let's say spirit!  I am sure that he and his best buds could think of more tricks than treats!  My card contains just a word of caution as well as a bit of humor!  I have used the following Stampotique stamps for this card:

Paris Lamp Post (the base of the lamp)*
Circles Cube (lamp bulb and background)*
Barcode Text #2 (BAD IDEA, GROUNDED)*
Checkers (sweet boy image)*
Scratches (background stamp)

*denotes stamps from the NEW RELEASES

And, the reveal:

Thanks for visiting today and for leaving a comment so that I will know you came by.
