Halloween is all about the treats and I'm so glad that I have children who can go out and gather them for me (lol). I'm also pretty grateful that my kids are very picky about the candy that they will eat and they just happen to dislike my favourites. The second best part of Halloween is the making of cards - there are just so many cute images out there!
I have sent out this year's batch of cards and am now working on creating a batch for next year (sounds organized, but the reality is that I made too many last year and so have a backlog, but I don't want to stop making cards because, as already mentioned, there are so many cute images). Today, I have 2 cards to share with you so please keep scrolling down!
This first card uses a Bugaboo image (goofy halloween cat) added to an Elizabeth Dulemba image (caramel apple). As soon as I saw the caramel apple, I knew that I needed to set someone sitting on top and this new Halloween cat from Bugaboo is just perfect.

Cooking it up with Katie - use 2 of something (2 digis/2 spiders), add some letters (word strip), and glitter it up (spider webs)
Card #2 uses London Pumpkin from a fairly new stamping company - Simply Betty Stamps. These images are definitely different from the run-of-the-mill!
I matted the image on black cardstock and then made 4 blocks using Basic Grey patterned paper. The black velvet rick-rack was in my scrap and the glittery stars were part of a scrapbook page kit. I didn't photograph it, but the sentiment inside is "Ghouls just want to have fun".
