A Haunting Challenge from 7 Kids College Fund!

Happy middle of the week!  Can the middle of the week be happy? Of course; it means the week is already half-way over :)

Welcome to another 7 Kids College Fund Challenge!  This week, we're asking you to create a fall themed or Halloween creation using the wonderful sketch by Lisa Andrews.  We also have an optional challenge to combine two stamps on your creation.  Make sure you visit the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog to play along! We have a great prize this week, but you must use a stamp that is carried by the 7 Kids store to be eligible.

Since I don't have very many Halloween stamps (NONE to be exact), I used some two Magnolia stamps, instead: Captain Edwin and Spanish Tilda.  Does it make sense?  They're supposed to be dressed in their costumes and out trick-or-treating.  I hope this make sense, lol.  I used papers from the BasicGrey Eerie 6x6 Paper Pad, which is the quintessential paper pad for Halloween cards.  It just goes perfectly for all your spooky creations.

The sentiment is from the Whimsy Stamps Halloween Ticket Sentiments set which will be releasing at the Whimsy Stamps Store tomorrow along with another Halloween Sentiments set which I've cut out and put on a die cut from the Tim Holtz Ticket Strip Die (also available from 7 Kids).  ALL the Whimsy Ticket Sentiments fit very nicely in these dies because they are the perfect proportions!  I could, of course, just cut them out, but the wonderful thing about the die is that it has nice perforations at the end of the tickets, like real tickets do.  You can click each product below to be taken to their product page.
