My first Halloween card

I think this is my first Halloween card ever! Imagine that! Well, it's not that weird when you think about it, Icelanders don't celebrate Halloween or most other American holidays. We do celebrate Christmas and I miss Icelandic Christmas. I don't think anyone in my husbands family dresses up for Christmas, overalls are the thing to wear. But in Iceland we wear something really nice and the stores aren't open. I'll write about that closer to Christmas.
Anyway, I got an awesome blogcandy from Beth and the ribbons were perfect for a Halloween card, hopefully I'll have time to do more. I just got a cheap stamp from A. C. Moore since I didn't have any Halloween stamps. The patterned paper is from the dollar section at Target. The card base is Bazzill.

I've also done 4 more Christmas cards but since they're all almost the same I'll just post one. You're probably getting tired og my little snowmen, I promiss I'll take a break from them now and use some other stamps.
Again I used crackle medium and crystal effects. The stamp is from Whipper Snapper.
I used the crackle medium first and then put crystal effects on top of it because I've had some problems with the crackle medium, sometimes it comes off too easily. And I forgot to mention the Stickles.
I'm Waiting for some stuff in the mail, more Stickles, glimmer mist that I can't wait to try, Prisma colors and some other things (don't remember exactly). Hopefully they'll get here soon.
I've signed up on Splitcoaststampers and you'll find me there under my (nick)name huldap, I just use my name there like everywhere else.
Have a nice day everyone, I might not post again until Sunday, busy weekend ahead!

buhuhu.. ég er búin að reyna í allt kvöld að hringja í þig.. hvernig gekk í Charlotte?

Flott kort;) Ég er líka rosalega hrifin af jólakortunum þínum sem eru svolítið öðruvísi.. með "blómunum" og líka þeim sem eru ekki í týpísku jólalitunum
