Spooky Birthday

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

Tiddly Inks Spooky Birthday Witch


Happy World Card Making Day. I know, another crazy holiday. And this one doesn't have anything fun like an Easter Bunny or Santa Clause to deliver fun gifts. Too bad, because I'm low on adhesive. 

You know I take any excuse to make a card, and this is a really good excuse: two very special people who celebrate birthdays on Halloween.

Can we just say how up town that little witch looks with her streaked hair and houndstooth maxi skirt?

The spider-embellished birthday cake she's holding inspired me to make a little spider cupcake wrapper. How cute is that?!

Happy birthday Uncle Carl and Kat.

I'm sorry, I ate your cupcake.


Tiddly Inks is sponsoring our Catered Crop Halloween Screams recipe swap this week. Picking a stamp from her adorable collection wasn't easy – there's so much to choose from – until, that is, I saw this Spooky Birthday witch. With two very dear people in my life celebrating birthdays on Halloween, that was a no brainer.

Spooky Birthday witch is Copic colored, fussy cut and paper pieced. She's a party animal so she's playing along with World Card Making Day, our Catered Crop Halloween Scream, Ribbon Carousel's RCC73 Halloween Spirit, and Crazy 4 Challenges' C4C157. (That girl gets around.)

The spider cupcake wrapper is cut with the Silhouette Cameo. You can follow the link below to get to the cut file. After I cut it out, I ran the paper through an embossing folder so, you know, it'd be as up town as the spooky birthday witch.

Here are the Copic markers and the rest of the recipe. See ya tomorrow for our Catered Crop Quickfire.
