Are You a Good Witch or a Bad Witch?

Glinda, the Good Witch of the North: Are you a good witch, or a bad witch?
Dorothy: I'm not a witch at all. I'm Dorothy Gale from Kansas.
Glinda: Oh. Well, is that the witch?
Dorothy: Who, Toto? Toto's my dog!
    ~ The Wizard of Oz (1939)


Can you tell I'm totally bewitched by Halloween? I love everything about it except maybe the scary parts.



I would definitely be a goody-two-shoes kind of witch if I were a witch at all because I just get scared too easily. I tried to read the Exorcist when it came out 1973, but I got so scared, I threw it in the backyard. I was afraid to even have the book in the house. I don't think Mailey Dog or Pillow Pup would make very good witches, either. I'm just sayin'.


Catered Crop Follow the Recipe

We're following the soft, shabby chic inspiration from E.T. for our follow-the-recipe #20 party. So, okay, mine may be shabby, but maybe not so chic. But, that's okay because you never have to use the entire recipe for our parties – just pick and choose the ingredients that work for you and stir up your own magic. For my magic potion, I choose the following from E.T.'s recipe: a digital stamp, lots and lots of glitter, ribbon/lace, (black) pearls, and die cuts.

As I mentioned before, I first met our sponsor,  Heartfelt Creations at a stamping convention last Winter. I was mesmerized by the amazing products they were demonstrating. I always love it when I find something I've never seen before, and I learned more watching them at that booth than if I'd taken a dozen classes.

One of the things Heartfelt Creations demonstrated was this amazing ultra-fine transparent glitter. It's so fine and transparent you can actually stamp right on it.  I applied double-sided sticky tape to the one side of my center panel, removed the release paper and sprinkled microfine glitter over the top . . . just like they taught me. I wanted the background to resemble a dewy, Fall night. It's really quite a site in person.

Here's the rest of my recipe.

  • Pattern Paper – My Mind's Eye Mischievous
  • Cardstock– Stampin' Up!, Kraft and Neenah
  • Stamps – Claire Keay Little Witch.
  • Color Mediums – Copics, Stampin' Up! Stampin' Pastels
  • Embellishments – May Arts Net Ribbon, Stampin' Up! Trim Lace (Raven), My Mind's Eye Decorative Brads
  • Tools – My Favorite Things File Tab Die-namics Woodgrain Fence, Nestabilities
  • Misc. – Crystal Glitter Ritz Transparent Micro-fine Glitter, Be Creative Sheet (two-sided adhesive sheets)
  • Challenges – My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club 36 (MFTWSC36), Jellypark Challenges Pass it On*

*What a great challenge – asking us to be sure to not just make a card, but actually give it to someone. I do have someone designated to receive this card, but it's a little secret I can't tell or it will spoil the surprise.


Be sure to swing back by later today. We have an extra special, fantastic . . .  amazing treat for you. The Heartfelt Creations design team is joining the Catered Crop Top Chefs for our Quickfire. Ah, the creations are just GOR-Jusss. You do not want to miss this.

Off to bed for me . . . it's way past my bewitching hour.

  2. Linda, This is gorgeous!! I LOVE the glittered DP…. A M A Z I N G!!
    I’m a scaredy cat, too. :)

  3. Oh, so sparkly, pretty! Love it! Your witch is too sweet looking to be bad! :0)
    (when I was reading scary books, I did not like to have them in my room at night either!)

  4. WHERE did you get that SUPER cute Claire Keay image???? EEEKS! This is gorgeous!!

    • Hey Jessie – Claire Keay opened an on-line store for her digital images at Jellypark: I love, love her images. Honestly, I prefer them as stamps, and I hope her new store doesn’t mean that My Favorite Things will carry less of her images as stamps. But, being to get her images through Jellypark works great for immediate gratification – no shipping delays. 😉

  5. Linda, this little image had me RUNNING for Jellypark! SOOOOO sweet! Of course, it could be that your piecing and coloring is beyond terrific and my witch would probably not look as cute as yours!

  6. I absolutely adore your card with Claire’s little witchie poo! she is precious! love the papers, too. everything about this is perfectly perfect!
    thanks so much for joining us at Jellypark Friends for the ‘pass it on’ challenge. :)

  7. OHHHHHH! I love this–I LOVE that little image! I am also going to Jellypark! Super cute card!

  8. This card is AMAZING – what a creative way to colour the image, I would never have thought to have done that – you are brilliant!! So glad you are enjoying the Jellypark images! I am still designing with MFT as well so some more to come there but love having my own digi shop too and planning on really expanding my range. Love to hear your ideas of what kind of images you like best!!

    Thanks so much for joining in the Jellypark Challenge :)
