Happy Halloween!

Hello everyone,

Today I have a Halloween card to share, I love all the halloween images and the colours (except the really scary ones), I decorate the house with ceramic pumpkins that have tea lights in them and a couple of fluffy bats with glittery eyes ~ then I go lock the gate so no one came come trick or treating ~ lol!  I just can't cope with large groups of children in ghoulish costumes standing on my doorstep and it drives the dogs crazy (we have a buzzer on our gate that goes off every time it is opened and this sets the dogs off).  Having said that, our drive is very long and dark, so scary enough that most children won't brave it!

I know I said in my last post that I would be sharing another commission card with you all ~ but I just couldn't resist doing a halloween creation.  I will share the commission card next week.

Backing Papers: Whimsy Stamps ~ 'Halloween Grunge'
Cardstock: From scraps box
Sentiment: Penny Black ~ 'T for Transparent ~ Critter Fright'
