Polkadoodles Halloween

We decided as it was so close to Halloween that we had to give the adorable halloweenie download from Polkadoodles another outing. You don't have to make a halloween card to enter the challenge though, and there are prizes for the winner
My card is made with the downloads, spooky Jack is so cute, but I had to add some googly eyes, the big ones looked cuter than the teensy ones I put on first.
I added a strip of drippy-goo punched black paper, but the drips didn't show up, so I added a backing strip of orange and doodled around them. A bit of random stitching, a sentiment from the download, and it still looked a bit blah, until I decided to bring Jack's spooky friend into the scene and put him to peep over the sentiment


We had a most super day yesterday with Joan and Tom, our 'new' friends, although from the moment they walked in through the door, Joan and I never stopped talking, it felt as if I had known her for years. We escaped to a stamping store when the men started to talk about car insurance, and I introduced Joan to copic markers. Oh dear, maybe I am not Tom's new best friend after all...... It was a great day, and we are already planning our next get-together. Amazing what blessings you get from blogging!

Blogging or being part of a crafting community brings lots of blessings! I started meeting women from an internet crafting forum three years ago and by now they are my dearest and best friends.

My name is Joan and I live in Port St. Lucie, Fl. I am an avid follower of En's blog and love her work. Yesterday we finally met En and Mike in person and had a wonderful day together. It will not surprise you that En is just as gracious and funny as she is on her blog. We talked non stop, visited her stamp store and enjoyed a great lunch together. I came home laden with supplies thanks to En's generosity. Can't wait to see them again. Love to En and Mike
