Witching you a Happy Halloween!


Happy Tuesday!!! How is your week going so far. I can't believe that Halloween is this Saturday. My family & I just love Halloween. The decorations, the costumes, and the celebrations.

Speaking of celebrations, every year we hold a neighborhood Halloween party/parade and we did this last Sunday. What a great time we had. All the neighborhood kids got dressed up, and they all gathered at my house for some goodies, and a get together. We had a great time. I am really looking forward to Halloween. It is supposed to rain, but I am hoping that it holds off. Do you have any special plans for Halloween?

For today's card, I used "Itty Bitty Betty-Broom Ride" digi image from Pink Cat Studio. This is a pretty simply card, but I did want to add a little dimension and pop dot the cat and frog. I used a some DP from my scraps stash and viola.
I don't know about you, but I make cards, mostly for challenges and such, and then they get thrown in a box and never to be seen again. Well, this year I am determined to mail out Halloween cards. I have made a bunch and they are going postal. Why do I hang onto them??? Do you mail your cards? what do you do with all your cards?
I wanted to share a few pics of the Halloween parade we hosted. The first pic is of our house. Every year my husband goes crazy with the decorations, but the kids love it. The second pic is of my husband and a skeleton he made this year. The skeleton is actually wearing some of my husbands old clothes. The third picture is of my kids. My daughter is a hippy girl, and my son is a Mario (from Mario brothers), and the last pic is of my fur babies. People think I am crazy, but I can't help myself, they look so cute......





Well, that is all for me today. I hope you're having a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by, and happy Creating!!!!

Hi Kristen,

This is a gorgeous card and of course I love the image.

I keep all my cards but then I have only been doing this since July. I just like to look at them sometimes to see how far I have come!!

That looks such fun, we don't do much over in the U.K. for Halloween but I do expect some little visitors of the spooky variety - usually only three of them but sometimes more so I will have a cauldron of candy bags ready!
Love the fur babies in their outfits, I don't think mine would keep the hats on.
