    Googly Peek-a-boo

    Hope you all are having a great week, we here in South Florida are waiting for fall to arrive.  It doesn't get very cold here so if the temps dip into the 70's it's a welcome change. 
    I just loved the Googly Ghouls set and saw this card online and wanted to share it with you.  I don't make very many Halloween cards but this one is a breeze to make.  This is the last of my Halloween posts.  This is an easy card, the base is Elegant Eggplant, with layer 1 being black and embossed with the Spider Web Folder.  I used a piece of Whisper white on the inside, the sentiment is Pumpkin Pie and the spider is stamped in Basic Black.

    The Eggplant layer is punched with a 11/4 circle and the black is a 1 3/8 circle.  I put my white inside and then stamped the spider into the circle through the hole in the Eggplant.  Add the top layer aligning the circles.  Stamped the Happy Halloween inside and finished the spider with some Goolies.  Fast and easy as pie.  Hope you enjoy.  Here is a quick list of supplies and the measurements.

    Googly Ghouls (128063 $12.95 Clear set of 6 or Wood 128060 $16.95)

    Assemble; using Mono adhesive tape the black layer to base.  Tape Vanilla to gray and pennants together.  I used a glue dot to add the letters and dimensionals to pop up the Ghouls and the pendants.  I added some Googlies to the letters O and it the eye of my mummies.   Lastly, I stamped Happy Halloween inside the card. 
    Wow I didn't mean for this to be a long post, but I want you to be able to create my cards at home.  Until next time.......Do one thing today that makes you happy!
