Tuesday Morning Sketches #267

Happy Tuesday, its time for another Tuesday Morning Sketches. Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo. I love making Halloween cards, I don't send a lot of them out but it does not stop my fascination with them.

I am using this fabulous image called Skull Tree, I layered the panel twice, the back panel is also layered and I used a die cut with some vellum for the web. I finished with some die cut spiders that I glittered up in black and popped them up.

Fall is on its way, the mornings are cooler and darker :( the spiders have decided that they want vacation indoors... uggg. Sorry Legs, I don't care if sacrificing you will bring in the liquid sunshine - w 'you' making an appearance you are going to get a squish and swim down the swirl bowl.

My son read somewhere when he was 9 or 10 that chestnuts will keep spiders away, we have an abundance of chestnut trees in our area and come fall I would see the corners of his room start to acquire nuts. I have no clue if it really works but he was determined right through to when he left home. Note: Chestnuts are not good for the Vacuum cleaner.

Looks at me ramble.. sheesh. I will stop now :).

Supplies: White and black card stock, Designer Paper - Carta Bella, Vellum, Bugaboo - Skull Tree, Memory Box die cuts, glitter.

Stop by the Tuesday MorningSketches blog to see what the Design Team had created. We would love for you to play along, we like everyone else love some commenting love :).

Thank you for stopping by.


  1. Me too! I love making Halloween cards even though it isn't a big card-sending holiday. The STUFF is just too cute and fun! I love the spiderweb in the corner. We've got a lot of Charlottes at our house right now too - those are how we all refer to the truly big-a$$ spiders that look like they eat children, lol :)

  2. Wonderful Halloween card Nina! Awesome image and I love the vellum spiderweb! I've noticed a few more eight legged visitors lately also, ugh! I've never heard of chestnuts keeping them away, but my mother-in-law swears that crab apples will do the trick!

  3. I love this card! What a great halloween card.

  4. Fun card!

    We've had lots of spiders heading indoors, too! Yuck!!

  5. That's a really fun goblin tree with all the bats and spiders and a car! I'm with you on the spiders in the house! EEK!
