TCP Challenge TCPTUES74 / ESS Sketch #51

It has been a busy week for me with work, a fridge watering my living room rug and my kitchen wood floor and some intense bed hunting - which is much harder than buying a house, I am convinced! With all that, I haven't had a chance to do any scrapping or blogging or even reading any of my blog reads. But enough, I need a break from all that! :)

I caught up with this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge, hosted by Jen from i{heart}2stamp, where she is challenging us to break out our TCP Halloween stamps and have a fright night (well in my case) of stamping! :)

This is my take on this week's challenge:

I started this card using this week's ESS Sketch #51, where Tracy Clemente is one sketch away from a year full of inspiring and very FUN sketches! And this one was no different! A simple blank canvas, with great areas to use punches! That was my first thought and everything else came together rather quickly.

Sprinkles dressed up as a ghost holding that trick or treat pumpkin bucket is FANTASTIC; both of these TCP images had not seen ink and I was eager to do so this time around. That star pumpkin image was fun to use in combination with Martha Stewart scary fence.

I had a FUN frightful night, stamping, coloring and overall de-stressing! :)

Have a great holiday weekend! And thank you for stopping by!
