Happy Halloween

So it's Halloween again!  It seems to come faster and faster each year.  We still get excited about it at our house even though our girls are older.  The decorations come out, the scary music is on and the treats are ready by the front door, just waiting for the trick-or-treaters.

We made some fun treats for Dana's classroom.  She's student teaching in a grade 4/5 class this year.  I saw this on Pinterest and loved this idea! 

Aren't they cute?  All she needed were chocolate covered cookies, Hershey Kisses and orange icing to make these fun witches hats.

On to today's card...Not too long ago, I joined The Card Swap forum at CardMaker Magazine.  It has been a lot of fun to get involved in another group.  This really reminded me of the Simply Sentiments magazine board from years ago.  The ladies are friendly and there are a lot of fun and creative things going on.  Check it out if you get a chance.

I made this card for one of the challenges on the forum.

Since it's Oldie Moldie Monday (where I give love to some long forgotten supplies), I found some good oldies in my Halloween stash!  The green paper is from Karen Foster, the pumpkin face and sentiment are old My Mind's Eye.  I googled the Jack-O-Lantern image and then did my best to copy it.   The googly eyes are from our craft stash.

And if you want to hear all about my favorite Halloween costume (and who doesn't?? :)), check out the CardMaker Magazine blog.  They were very nice to ask me to share a few memories along with some of their regular contributing  designers.

Thanks for dropping in.  I hope you have a fun Halloween!
