Halloween's Almost Upon Us - LBC Halloween Grunge

Yes, Halloween's in 11 days - the time has come for me to get on my witch's broom and make some spirited cards for my little goblins and ghosties.  
Good Sunday to you crafties.  It's Mama LoveBug here with two of my Halloween criss-cross cards.

Before I share these I'd like to tell you how sad I am to report what I heard on a recent visit to JoAnn's.  I absolutely love the Kathy Davis collection and I thought I'd take advantage of a coupon to get another paper stack. While I definitely got my KD fix, I noticed the entire collection which included a vast array of extras - buttons, brads, borders, mini-clips, etc was on 50% clearance.  Yay, I thought. This is super, so I stocked up.  When I went to the checkout I casually mentioned that I'm a fan and wondered when the next collection would be in the store.  The gal said that JoAnn's is discontinuing its line of Kathy Davis products.  The next day my daughter went to the same store and saw the KD products were up to 70% off.  It never fails - I find a super product and then it goes away!! That's my lament!

Oh well, here's what I designed today - 2 pieces of 12 x 12 paper did the trick on the swap out of paper - 2 cards that are similar yet different with contrasting colored Halloween Grunge found HERE

*Halloween DCWV paper - super nice weight for this card style
*Jaded Blossom tag dies
*Butterfly Punch - EK
*LoveBug Creations Halloween Grunge 

Remember no matter how you rumple your ribbon and piece your paper, have fun with it...........cyberwitching.........Mama LoveBug
