4 of a Kind October with Kim




 Here we are, already mid-October, our California weather has finally cooled down a little and time for another Four of a Kind post.  This month our hostess was Kim of Cupcakes, Cards and Kim.  She did a fabulous job creating a very spooky kit for us, all kinds of great elements just perfect for creating some scary Halloween cards.  Here is a picture of the kit Kim sent to us:

 So many fun things to play with, which is exactly what I did while I was on vacation.  I made all three of my cards using only elements Kim sent me and they all practically put themselves together...as Joyce would say.

My first card uses Authentique "Enchanted" patterned paper and Waltzingmouse Halloween Party for the great witch "Wanda".

 I also used some new Lil Inker dies with a great stitched border impression.  The spider web is from Papertrey Ink.

My second card uses some die cut banners and a medallion from Waltzingmouse Wanda's Pantry.  The little border is from Papertrey Ink, Loop de Loop.

My last card is my favorite because it is so Halloween "girly".

This one is going to my daughter with a special Happy Birthday message inside.  She has always loved having her birthday on Halloween and this year she turns 21!  How old does that make me?  I love the black tulle that Kim sent us to use and I made a little big of ruffles to go along with Witch Cicily from Waltzingmouse Cicily at Halloween.

Here's a pic of all three of my cards, they are already addressed and sent off in the mail or wrapped up waiting for Carly to open on her birthday.  Thanks Kim for a fabulous kit this month.  
Ready to see what my other three friends have made using Kim's kit?  Follow the links below, you will love what you see!

Wonderful cards this month. You used that tulle so perfectly. Why didn't I think of that? I love how the witch image looks on that stitched sentiment pane.--another die on my wish list. Your banners and border are perfect, and you did such a great job of coloring that sweet little witch on your last card.
