Halloween Fun

I sat down last night after a long day of running the kids around and then washing our house. My husband doesn't believe in power washing so I had to do it with a broom and hand held brush. Needless to say I needed to have a little me time in the evening! I started out with a card challenge I have played with before but I'll just say my card didn't make the grade. I was ready to give up and go watch some TV with my husband but then he came down to tell me he was getting into the tub for a soak so I thought maybe I'd give it another go. I happened upon this sketch #114 from Create With Connie & Mary and found inspiration!

I knew I had a good thing going so I decided to make 2 and change them up just a little. In the end I couldn't decide which one I liked best so I'm showing you both.

The dsp for both cards is from the Brights Designer Series Paper stack. I used the Polka Dots Embossing Folder on the black card and the new Spider Web Embossing Folder from the Holiday Mini. The pumpkins use a 3/4" circle punch and the new Small Oval punch also from the Holiday Mini. The ribbons are 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbons paired up with the new Glimmer Brads once again from the Holiday Mini.

I didn't have much to go with as far as Halloween sentiments is concerned until I came upon this little Boo from Tiny Tags. Inspiration struck once again!

Hope you like. I sure had fun putting these together and so glad I gave it another go. Make sure you check out the Holiday Mini here for all the goodies I used and more!

Cute cards. Love the pumpkins in the grass. I like the orange DSP with it the best, but they are both so cute. Thanks for sharing.
