H2H#25 Ready for a Sketch?

It's week #25 over at the Heart 2 Heart challenge blog! It seems like just yesterday Mary started this weekly challenge to showcase CTMH products, and it's been 1/2 a year already! If you would like some inspiration featuring fabulous CTMH products, you really should check out this blog. There are some very creative people sharing their art there!

Guess I should be making more Halloween cards, this one was chosen for the Friday Five! Thank you ladies! H2H is one of my favorite places to get inspiration for CTMH products, it means a lot to me to have my card chosen by you!


  1. This is an awesome Halloween card! Leaving the skull bright white in the center of those spooky colors, really makes it pop!

  2. Love this. You did a great job. This stamp set is a lot of fun for grungy halloween cards and projects.

  3. This turned out awesome! I am not a big fan of the skull image but you did an awesome job with it, love the ribbon too! Thanks so much for joining us at H2H!
