The Witching Hour

Hello my friends!  I hope you all are having a wonderful fall day!  I've had the idea for this card ever since Mary over at Cardz TV came out with the Cardz TV Stamp set, "More Spooky Sayings."  I found this patterned paper at Bennion Crafts made by Graphic 45.  I knew just what I wanted to use it for.  When my daughter was a baby, at a certain hour at night she used to get really fussy.  My aunt used to call it "the witching hour."  I'm glad she out grew that!
I hadn't made a tall card in a long time, so I decided it was time.  I wanted to make a tall card so you could see more of the clocks.  It measures 3 3/4 x 9 1/4.  The green mat measures 3 1/2 x 9.  The orange mat measures 3 1/4 x 8 3/4.  The patterned paper measures 3 x 8 1/2.  The cute little witch came from a K & Co. embellishment package.  I put little foam squares on the back of her to add dimension.  The corner punch is from EK Success.

I hope you have had a chance to enter the Cardz TV Design Team Challenge "Boo's & Buttons."  You have until noon EST Thursday, October 11th to enter the Challenge.  Mary is giving away a set of her stamps to the winner!  Winner's choice!  All you have to do is create a card, layout, or other craft project for Halloween and use buttons.  Just remember to enter your project into Mr. Linky along with a picture on Mary's blog.  She will be announcing the winner on Friday, October 12th.

I hope you like this card.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I would really love to hear from you!

Lots of Hugs,
(The Queen)
