Witch Hazel...

I loved Bugs Bunny when I was growing up.  We really did have the greatest cartoons in the good old days.  I have to admit that even to this day, if I see the old Bugs Bunny and Wiley Coyote cartoons I have to stop and watch a bit.  A guilty pleasure!  My opening comment leads up to this:  the first time I saw the freaky friends stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I thought of Witch Hazel from Bugs Bunny when I saw the witch.

I will wait while you think about that. 1

I am right, aren’t I?  I can still hear her cackle as she chased after Bugs Bunny.  So I am honoring Witch Hazel today with her own card!  I am playing along with Retro Sketches to help make her shine.  When I saw the sketch originally, I had a hard time picturing what I would do.  And then it hit me.  The right side of the card makes a perfect cave.  So I embossed some scary looking eyes on black and sent some fussy cut bats out of the cave to startle Witch Hazel.  Then I added a googly eye to make Hazel’s eye look bugged out.  All in all, I think Witch Hazel looks pretty cute and maybe only a smidge startled.

Thanks for stopping by today!
