Halloween Candy Box & Card

Good Morning,

By the time you read this, I will be on my way to the Shenandoah Mountains.  My husband needs to go on a business trip and I am going with him.  I hope to see some fall colors, don't know if it has been cold enough to change the leaves yet.

I LOVE Halloween!  It is my favorite holiday!  

My post today is a long one, so grab a cup of coffee or tea and join me won't you?

I had a lot of fun working with some Dreaming Tree svg files this weekend.  I made the Halloween Treat Box and the Shudder Shutter Card.  

Here is a close up of the treat box.  As you can see, it is nice and large able to hold a lot of candy.  I used DCWV Glitter Card-stock Stack for the black and the ghost & bats.

Here is the card open:

If you look closely you can see that it has flaps on the side that cover the sentiment so when you open the card, you get a surprise BOO.  It came with a boo, but I decided to use a stamp instead.

Here is the card closed:

I used so much DCWV Glitter Card-stock Stack on the outside of this card!  The pumpkin, ghost and part of the grave are all glitter.

Best Witches

Good Morning,

Sorry I have been MIA, I had some sort of stomach bug.  

Today I would like to show you a card I made using The Paper Shelter's Witchcraft Digital Stamp & Paper.  I love the way the digital image comes with paper.

I tried to keep the embellishments to a minimum because I love this image. The first paper that you see behind the image came with the digital print.  I kept the other two papers kind of plain on purpose.

Here is the inside of the card:

This is usually where I say goodbye but I have a little to add.  It is okay if you don't want to read it, just skip ahead to the comments if you do grab a cup or coffee or tea and join me.  I was wondering why faeries and pixies have always been a "fall thing" for me.  As soon as fall is in the air, I want to color faeries with  acorn hats on their heads.  (if you go through the last few post, you will see I colored quite a few) It suddenly occurred to me that it might have something to do with Girl scouts, Brownies in Particular.  So I looked on Pinterest for images of the Brownie Handbook from the year I started Brownies and look!

Here is another image:

I used to run home from Catholic School (about a mile from my house) drop off my school books and then walk about another 1/2 mile to the public school to go to the Brownie Meetings.  During those walks I would let my imagination run free.  I would smell the crisp fall air and kick the colorful leaves under my feet and pretend that I could see fairies in the trees and "Brownie Pixies" hiding in the bushes.  There was a poster in the Brownie meeting room of  some Brownie Pixies wearing acorns as hats!  I also want to mention that I was probably six or seven when I did all of this walking.....no one worried that anything bad could happen.

Thanks for stopping by!
