Welcome, friends! It's my turn to host the Saturday Showcase at The Funkie Junkie Boutique challenge blog, and I've chosen to shine the spotlight on Tim Holtz Chapter 3 Christmas Thinlits dies which are currently available in The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I hope you will pop over to see just how easy these different cards are to create, given these wonderful die sets.
Big hugs! Sara Emily

"I love Halloween, and I would love to see your vintage or shabby chic Halloween creations, whether it be a card, tag, canvas, or any other make! If Halloween is not your cup of tea, simply use the colors purple, orange and green on your project to play along."
As always, the winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique challenge blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team. Please see the blog for details. While you are there, be sure to check out all the amazing inspiration by my talented teammates.
I added a bit of interest to the Abandoned papers with Stitches stamping in Black Soot Archival ink and a couple of old Halloween Remnant Rubs.
The moon is cut using the moon from this year's Gatekeeper set by Tim Holtz and some mop up paper I had in my stash. Anytime I have a puddle of ink, I mop it up with these sheets of paper I keep handy. They are perfect to have on hand for these little die cuts. The bats are also from Gatekeeper set and last year's Bat Crazy. I love how Tim's products work so well with his past releases.
I used some of the text from the Curiosities sticker book as my sentiments on each card
You can see from the weird angle below, that each of the houses was popped up on corrugated waste cardboard to add dimension.
That's all for me today. Now it's over to you! I hope you will get your crafty supplies out and create something for Halloween, or in the purple/orange/green color palette and link it up to the challenge for a chance to win one of the great prizes. Happy crafting! Sara Emily
