HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Well, it's Halloween! The weather was so nice and mild today that the little trick-or-treaters were able to be out tonight without having to wear heavy winter coats underneath their costumes! This is the card I sent out this year for Halloween. I was happy with the card and with the fact that the paper matched the M&M's perfectly! The little clear, plastic treat cup is from SU and made to go along with their Sweet Centers set.

Stamps - Halloween Backgrounds and Sweet Centers by Stampin' UP!

Ink - Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie

Paper - Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White, DP from the SU collection called Halloween Night.

The large bat is from a Martha Stewart punch. The small spider was given to me by a friend, but I think it was from a Cuttlebug die cut. I used a white gel pen to make eyes on the bat, and a black marker making the line for the spider. The bat was raised up on the card using dimensionals.

I hope you all had a great Halloween!

Boo to you too - that's really sweet - we're getting Sweet Treats in our next mini (but not Halloween ones as theoretically we don't celebrate it down under - but tell all the kiddies that dress up & collect lollies)
