Happy Halloween!

I promise...this is the last Halloween oriented post I will be sharing here for a while (probably at least 11 months! ;-) This card uses the Autumn Apparitions set from the Holiday Mini catalog. It is so cute and easy to work with. I bought it for my Halloween invites...which I never got around to making! (I sent out e-vites instead...can you believe it?) ***hangs head in shame*** Oh well, I had so much going with the party etc...I had to cut out something to keep what left I have of my sanity. hehehe

I used Jan Tink's Bib Card instructions for the base of the card. However, to fit the whole scene, I had to go with a 5-1/4 x 5-1/4" sized card. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to align the vine images on the side, and the moon is actually the pumpkin without the stem. When I was finished with the stamping of my scene I used my pastels to color in the background. I think I used every image from this set to create this card! (the Happy Halloween image is stamped inside) I also got out my beloved Cheese Cloth background (retired) for this one because it just screams Halloween.

I thought I'd share a couple photos that were taken at our party on Saturday, since I've gotten a few inquiries as to what I dressed up as. I was an evil witch (not too far of a stretch, eh?) that turned my prince charming husband into a frog. Doesn't he make a cute froggie?

Hope your day is filled with treats...and maybe a trick or two!
