Spookiness

funny, but when I think of Halloween I think of the Adam’s Family theme song LOL  I promised to share these pics with you weeks ago and never got around to it, so am playing catch up yet again.  It’s like digging out the family album and looking through and reliving events.

To recap, my neighbours had a birthday party with a Halloween theme and I made a few goodies for them.

Ok, so now the scene has been set.  The deck looked magnificent with fake spider webs, spiders etc.  They don’t quite have the same effect in the photo’s as they did in real life.

The Jack-O-Lantern was in the centre of the table surrounded by all the goodies.

I made bags of popcorn and used the limited halloween stamps I had at hand to make the toppers.  The spiders are made using punches and I put some “gold” chocolate coins inside them.  The kids loved them, so that is the main thing.  I’m hoping we will actually get at least one Halloween set next year as this had become a more popular theme in Australia in recent years.

Aren’t these just so cute?  I have seen these done a lot this year in the USA/Canada and loved to make them.  I must admit it took a lot of punching to make them all.  I hope you have enjoyed going back to Halloween tonight with me. 

 

Tomorrow I have some up to date stuff to show you.  In fact I think it is time to share some new summer mini projects with you all.  Till then take care and remember….

 

Keep Smiling & Stamping,

Oh my gosh, where did October go?  I have had several things I wanted to share with you including last night’s Halloween stuff.  Unfortunately it will have to wait till tomorrow.  I am now off to work.

If you celebrated Halloween, I hope you had an awesome time.  I made some treats and took next door as my neighbours are having a Halloween Birthday Party tonight.  I hope to get over (after work) and take a few pics of their setup on the back deck….looks awesome!!!  Complete with spiders in webs.  Great job Mandy!!

Ok, gotta dash.

Criss Cross Cards

I finally sat down the other day and made some of these.  I have used the Apple Cider DSP for these.  I love this paper but had not gotten around to using it.  They would make great cards for Halloween or masculine cards.  I did not make a belly band for them, but they could be added for a bit more pizzaz.  Here are some pics.

Hope you enjoyed seeing these cards as much as I have making them.  

These can be made to suit any occasion…hmmm can see some Christmas cards coming up.

 

Until next time, remember
