Ooo...ooo...witchy woman...

...see how high she flies...yes - I have that song stuck in my head today (I do love the Eagles by the way - Hotel California is on my Top 10 Best Songs of all time list ;)) It's kind of an appropriate song to have stuck in my head considering the card I have to share with you today - hee hee...I am not sure if you saw this card over in my SCS gallery or not - but thought I would go ahead and post it over here on my blog too. This was a card I made using the "Totally Witchin" set by My Favorite Things and my submission for the November Guest Designer Challenge - the challenge was to use paper piecing. I am happy to report that I have been asked to be an ambassador again for the month of November - WOO HOO!! I am so excited and so honored to be chosen again - the entries were just super amazing!! So be sure to come play in my ambassador challenge at the November MFT release party - you could win a mini-set of your choice!! I used lots of paper from the DCWV Halloween Glitter stack on my card - I paper pieced the witches' dresses with it and then pieced together my background with it as well. I used 1 in. by 1 in. squares of patterned paper from this stacked - pieced them together on my 5X5 background and then machine stitched at the seams with black thread - a lot of work - but I love the funky Halloween feel of this card!! I colored the rest of the image in with Copics and drew in the flooring myself. The little ingredient jars and sentiment were from this set as well. I even used my Drippy Goo punch yet again on this card - I am telling you - I can't make a Halloween card without it - definitely the hot item to have right now!! ;) Thanks so much for stopping by!!
