I am so excited about this challenge because I got to use an action wobble on my card and we all know how fun action wobbles are! So here what I created...

My card is standard size 4 1/4 by 5 1/2. My solid cardstock is Bazzill and the cute ghost paper is from Colorbok. I thought this paper was just perfect for my card! I used my Martha Stewart "boo" punch to make the top border on my purple layer. The ghost was cut out at 3" from the Happy Hauntings cartridge. My sentiment is from Mary's Cardz TV Stamps from the new set "Oct. 31st".
I really LOVE Mary's stamps! She has the best quality stamps and always thinks of everything! This set in particular has to be one of my favorites. The sentiments are just perfect for Halloween and that cute bingo card.. ahhh...the endless possibilities!  I HEART Mary! Thank you Mary!!!!
For those of you who have been following my blog, you know that I have been trying to use something that I've had for ages in my stash of tools and supplies on my current projects. So for this card I used the MS Punch and some "fun fur" fibers that I've had for years. I added a bit of the purple fibers above my sentiment.  To finish off my card I added two purple buttons that have some twine going through them that I purchased at The Twinery.  Oh and I did mention in the beginning of my post that I used an action wobble right?? hehehe.. here is my cute ghost wobbling away!
So what are ya waiting for? Get your Halloween Mojo going and link up your creation by Thursday, October 11th by Noon to get yourself in the drawing for one of Mary's amazing stamp sets! I cannot wait to see what you create! To help with some inspiration, stop on by at Cardz TV and see what beautiful projects my design team sisters have created!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend!
