The Outlawz Alcohol Markers Pumpkin Challenge

Yes, this is my third post for today. But, I promise, it is my last. This week we are looking for pumpkin-themed entries, colored with any brand of alcohol markers. I used a fun image by Rick St. Dennis, called Priscilla Pilgrim Mouse.

Before I get to the deets on this card, I want to mention a couple of things. One, we did have a football game at home last week, unlike I thought. Good thing I happened to look at my calendar on Saturday to see that we had the game on Sunday, or we would have missed seeing an actual win! No kidding, the Cardinals won; and it was the best-played game of theirs all season. Who would have thunk? Not me, oh fair-weathered fan that I am. Needless to say, we enjoyed the game thoroughly and stayed until the very end.

And another thing I wanted to mention to you is that my sister, Barbara, and I are going to the annual stamp show in Mesa tomorrow. So I can spend some more of Gary's hard-earned money. Oh, yes, I am. And I know he expects that. I would hate to disappoint him, you know what I mean? (Snort.)

Donovan, the ding-dong dog, went nuts again last night. As he does every year on Halloween. Barked his head off in my lap, while Gary handed out the candy. I think I got the short end of the stick on that one--my ears are still ringing. Gary wanted to go out for the evening and avoid the trick-or-treaters, but I said Donovan would be upset hearing the doorbell. So we stayed home and gave out treats. Didn't want to be tricked. That can be downright dangerous.

OK, now for my card this week. I printed Priscilla on MICBC and colored her with Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers:

Hat/Apron: E40, E41, E42
Shoes/Bow/Leaf/Dress Collar: E84, E87, E89
Dress: TTBR104, TTBR107, TTBR109, E57
Mouse: E35, E37, E39, E29
Pumpkin: TTYR21, TTYR23, TTYR24
Acorns: E44, E47, E49

The face turned out so dark that I highlighted a bit of it with a white gel pen. My DP is from the Echo Park Reflections Fall collection; it is paired with CS from Stampin' Up and DCWV. I made die cuts with two dies: Cheery Lynn Fall Pumpkins and Memory Box Acorn. My finishing piece was a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket. All done.

  4. Hi Penny,

  7. This is so cute!
    Bet you were glad when Halloween was over ....surprised D didn't get doggie laryngitis (-:

  8. Penny, your card is gorgeous. Love your mouse and 3D pumpkin. Your poor puppy having to deal with all the visitors of Halloween. One year my son crawled between a ladies legs to go pet her dog and she didn't believe me when I said "Oh, no my son just went into your house to go pet your dog." I was scared because I didn't know if that would freak the dog out and he would bite him (not that he didn't deserve it), but my son loves animals. Have fun spending Gary's $$$, from your cards, I know you do a GOOD job.

  9. Loving your Pumpkin card- the 3-D Pumpkin is so cool! Love the fun image too. Sorry your poor pooch had to endure all of the Trick N Treaters- I guess it is better than getting tricked..... Hope you find lots of goodies at the show!
