Wicked Halloween Card for PP463

Ready to create a WICKED Halloween card? It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

Wicked Halloween cardLaurie has a fun color challenge on store for us this week.  Because I needed a few more Halloween cards, I opted to create one using Stampin’ Up!’s  Wonderfully Wicked bundle. Enjoy!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

I’ll admit it.  Spiders are not my favorite creatures, unless they are on a wicked Halloween card and hanging from a rhinestone thread.  This arachnid has a sparkly body because she’s been heat embossed with Shimmer Black Embossing Powder.

Of course, in my playbook, you can never have too much sparkle.  A trio of rhinestones accent the corner of the Smoky Slate panel, while a single one dots the “i”.

Brody

Brody is resting quietly after giving me quite the scare Wednesday morning. While I was out raking leaves, he collapsed in the yard.  One moment he had been playing with GQ, and then in the blink of an eye, he was down.  His breathing was shallow, his eyes were unfocused, and he was not responding to me.  It was so reminiscent of what I experienced when Missy the Boxer passed away almost a decade ago.  Sobbing, I called for my husband to come out.  Kim performed what we can best describe as canine CPR, while I ran inside to grab my keys and cell phone.  Kim carried him to the van, and as he drove,  I called the vet to tell them we were on the way.  I continued to talk to Brody,  telling him that if he needed to leave us, it was OK.  I told him we loved him, and that he had been such a good boy.  However, Brody decided that today was not the day!  By the time we arrived at the vet, he was responsive, and was able to walk, albeit wobbly, on his own. After blood tests, a chest  X-ray, and multiple vets listening to his heart, it was decided that he had probably had a mild cardiac episode.  His heart rate had returned to normal, gums were pink, lungs were filling fine, and the X-ray showed no signs of enlargement.  For the next two weeks, he is on meds while we wait to see if anything else happens.  In the meantime,  he is getting lots of hugs and snuggles.

  4. I’m not much of a Halloween person but this card is great – love the colors. I’m so sorry Brody gave you such a scare but what a wonderful comeback. Thankfully he isn’t ready to say goodbye yet. Wish I could be there to do some cuddling but share a hug from me.

  5. LOVE this! What a fun wicked card!!!

  6. Your rhinestone spider is adorable, Ann, and not many spiders are! It’s perfect with the purple “wicked.”

  7. Love your bejewelled spider and wicked diecut Ann – looks fab in purple too! So sorry to hear about Brody but thankful that he is now stable at home – sending him get well wishes and hoping you have a scare-free week!

  8. Ann, I am so sorry to see your news about Brody. How scary! I can’t imagine. I hope that he is able to rest and recover over the coming weeks. Please give him a big hug from me. Your card is fabulous, though. You can’t go wrong with gingham and a bedazzled spider! Fabulous as always, my friend!

  9. Ann, I love this Halloween card and that you added the wicked word. 🙂
    The spider and the Regal colored paper is awesome!
