Bwa ha ha ha Trick or Treat!!

     After not being in my stamp room for a few months I just buried myself playing.....for whatever reason I found myself focusing on Christmas and Horses, then it finally occurred to me that Halloween was just around the corner and I needed to get a few cards ready!!
     This is a card I made to send with a package to my son out west.  I doubt my kids will ever be too grown to not send a little package of goodies at Easter, Halloween, Birthdays, etc. (Christmas we are all together - yeah!)  Besides, He is one of my biggest fans and I think there is a good chance he has saved every card I have ever made him (One day I suspect he will meet a good woman and my cards won't mean quite as much). I know he will enjoy this one and the goodies I send with it.
     I have been playing with step cards and had this fab paper with eyeballs all over it, the idea of a graveyard for Halloween was just too good to let go of.  I stamped the cute little Kolette Hall Hampton Art stamp 3x's in a row and used my Copics to color the grass and tombstones.  The skull is a sticker from Recollections that I layered over some yellow/gold vellum for a spooky effect.  Trick or treat is a dollar stamp and the spider webs along the outside are a Martha Stewart punch....had a lot of fun doing this and can't wait to do a matching treat bag and get it in the mail.  Happy Haunting!!!

Thanks for looking!!!
