I Hate Snow in October!

Good morning!  I woke up to a gorgeous morning - blue sky, clean and crisp air... really no indication of the EIGHT to TWELVE INCHES of snow we're expecting later on tonight.... Yeah, I said it.  A foot of snow.  In October.  *sigh*  I remember back in 1979, I was 8 years old and we had snow during trick-or-treating... so it's not unheard of.  But it's still not something we look forward to, that's for sure!  LOL

So for today I have a few things to share, first up is my creation for the:
I used this adorable "Christmas Robin" FREEBIE from Just Some Lines that you can find here.  He's colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and sprayed with Gold Glow Smooch Spritz.  Cardstock, brads, and ink are from Stampin' Up!  The optional part of the challenge was to add dimension, which I did by printing the image out twice, cutting the first one out into the center of a circle and then fussy-cutting the 2nd one and applying with foam dimensional dots.  I also added white Fun Flock to the Santa cap.

REMINDER - you have one more week to enter the:

Just Some Lines Challenge - Halloween Theme

Just Some Lines is also sponsoring the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge this week, too, the theme of which is also Halloween, so I'm also linking this ATC up to that challenge as well as:

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Halloween

I used the adorable Hallo Cat image, colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. I sponged the background lightly with black ink.  Cardstock, DP, and brads are from Stampin' Up!

I also have a card for the:
Polka Doodles Halloween Challenge

I used their Special Halloween Download to create this spooky Halloween card.  :)

And last, but not least, don't forget to create a set of 3 ATC's for my challenge over at:
Wicked Wednesdays ATC Challenge Blog!

Thanks - hope you all have a fabulous weekend.  Stay warm, my New England friends!
