Turning a Crow into a Raven in 3 easy steps!

Hello my darlings,

I sit here on Sunday night like an inert sack of jello.. I am not even sure what to say about this day( 6 hours of meetings, broken down car, dinner with kids, grocery shopping ) besides the fact that I am so glad it is almost over and  we are launching into a new week!  I know so many people dread Monday's but I love them!... A fresh start, time to try again with a mighty fine chance of getting it right!

The previous week was full to the brim with creative endeavors that will bear fruit over the next few months, some of which I will share over the next week and others that I must keep under wraps for a bit longer ( such a tease I am!).. but  I did sneak in a bit of time for some frivolous but fun crafting that I wanted to share with you today!

While it is still hotter than the surface of the sun  here in Chattanooga my mind is already straying to Fall and a Halloween party I have brewing in the back of my mind.  Perhaps a bit early I know but last year I did not even get  out the decorations and everyone was bummed so I am hoping to do it up right this year!

With the party in the back of my mind I was totally drawn to the wonderful crow image that the every wonderful Karen over at the Graphics Fairy had posted up.  And while it does say crow I think it looks good enough to pass for a raven and  therefore perfect for my hallow-theme.. Edgar Allen Poe



Yes... the Crow is now a Raven.... and looking pretty dang wonderful here on the kraft paper bags that we will be using for party favors!  I added the wording since... well you know, it was just too cool not to do it!


I sized and merged the image and then had to play around a bit to get it centered on the bag. In the end I told the printer that it was printing an envelope that was about the size of the bag.. tweaked it a bit more by raising the image above the bag fold and that was about it.



So what do you think?.. does it give you any crafty inspiration?

Love it. Like you I love Halloween. It is a fun holiday for the kids & myself. Who doesn't love candy, dressing up & fun decorations? I don't suppose you could be persuaded to sell your Halloween chapstick holders. I have lusted after them for years.

Just beautiful, and spooky. love Halloween myself, creeping around the neighbourhood in the dark. The kids had a great time making spooky cupcakes one year. More community than Xmas as when else do you go visiting the neighbours.

This is fantastic! Karen at Graphics FAiry mentioned what a fine gjob you had done with this.I am nearly technologically illiterate and don't have any idea how to do this. I was wanting something similar just to frame and put on my mantel for Halloween, but that's beyond my ability on the computer. Would you be willing to share this printabe? Thanks.
