Bite Me

YAY OCTOBER!  I love October.  I can't wait to make iced pumpkin coffee cake (a.k.a. pumpkin crack) and break out my tea stash again.  I've had a cup or two in the past couple of weeks, it's still a little bit warm for hot tea :)  October also means Halloween, and so here's a spookariffic card for you!


I do tend to say "bite me" with a fair amount of frequency (possibly because Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of my favorite TV shows?) so I couldn't resist the Bite Me photopolymer stamp set when it came out last year.  And then I made a card with it and DIDN'T use the bite me stamp!  So now I've fixed that problem :)  The other stamps I used are again from last month's Paper Pumpkin kit.  Haven't made the little treat bags that came in the kit but I'm having fun with the stamps!

I used this week's Color Throwdown:


And the Paper Players sketch:


Love this sketch, I might have to use it again soon.

Happy October, peeps!
