Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential

Yay, the day has finally arrived! It's the very first challenge of the brand spanking new challenge blog....SATURDAY SPOTLIGHT WITH HIDDEN POTENTIAL! And what a fun challenge we have to start it off...

...make a Halloween project without using halloween images!!! How fun is that?! Our very first sponsor is the fabulous Whimsy Stamps!

Ok, so for my first card I used the adorable Whimsy frog and dressed him up for trick or treating! Isn't he cute in orange polka dots? I think he wears it well!!! lol These traditional colors scream halloween and let you look at your current stamps in a whole new light!

This next idea is from Stampin' Up...using their oval punches!
A fun little pair of eyes....think of all the fun you could have with these!
Easy peasy! What hidden potential do you see in your stash??? I hope you'll play along with us this week @ Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential for a chance to win a gift certificate to Whimsy Stamps!
Checkout what the rest of the DIVAS created....
Have a wonderful weekend!!! Blessings!

They say being green isn't easy, so why not go with orange and polka dots?? Especially appropriate for Halloween! Fun idea for the punches, too; I hadn't seen that creation before!

You have been a busy stamper. I have never tried the punched eyes. Love that idea. The frog with the orange skin is perfect. He is so cute. I think he will be perfect for a Halloween card. Great job Maria. I love them both.
