Fourth Friday Challenge with Paper Garden Projects for September ~

Its Fourth Friday challenge time again - can you believe it! Time sure flies!  This month, we want to see all your wonderful Halloween ideas! It can be any type of project: card, scrap page, alerted item, treat pack - we want to see them all. The only rule is that you link up a project newly created for this challenge, although feel free to combine it with other current challenges out there in blogland.
Although we would love to see all the art you care to share, everyone will be entered in the prize drawing only once. One winner will be drawn randomly to win the prize. You have until midnight (EST) on Saturday, October 2nd to link up your project. Just click the little froggy face at the bottom of Cathy's post to add your project.

Your prize this month is this wonderful Halloween sentiment cling stamp. Can't wait to see what you create!

Here's a little duo of treats and a fun easel card.  I stamped the clear treat box with a spider web stamp in white StazOn ink and filled it with dark chocolate kisses.  I'm not a big fan of dark chocolate so it's safe for me to have it in the craft space {wink}!  The card uses the Best Witches cling stamp set again.  This little witchy poo had a bit too much to drink at the Halloween party!  She is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics.  I used the out of box technique to leave her broom outside of the Labels 8 Spellbinders die.  While she was still in the die, I punched out a circle and sponged inside of it with Summer Sun and More Mustard inks.  I used the punched circle to mask my full *moon* and sponged around the image with Dusty Concord ink.  Her shoes, leggings and parts of her hair have lots of fun Stickles - the more glitter the more fun!
The easel part of the card is held up by the sentiment that comes in the set, "Halloween Tip #72: Don't drink and fly."  I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossed it.  I went over the tip portion with a green Copic and mounted it on some sponged paper.  A couple of the Matte buttons finish this off!  Hope you enjoyed your little stop here.  Be sure to play along with a fun Halloween themed project for your chance to win! 
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  We have a wedding to attend tonight, a birthday party for a dear friend's kiddo on Saturday and then my little guy's birthday party on Sunday! Busy, busy, busy!  Be sure to stop back by on Monday...Perfect Presentation has a new release that you aren't going to want to miss!  :o) lyss
