Trick or Treat

This month, the Calendar Girls were led by Tami!!

Her challenge - in her own words:
"Although maybe not a super original idea, I would love to see what Halloween cards the Calendar Girls can make! I have seen so many fun designer papers, stamps and embellishments at the craft stores of late. Fun!

Here are the details……..

Theme: Halloween

Layers: At least three layers somewhere on the card, one layer being a designer paper {I love me some DP}

Colors: Somewhere on your card please use the color purple

Embellishments: Two for sure - and are you ready needs to be a glitter product *gasp*

Blog Post: Please share what your favorite candy is to receive in your trick-or-treat bag and if you participate in this holiday, please include what fun things do you like to do for Halloween

I am so looking forward to seeing what our great group of Calendar Girls has to offer on this challenge. I can hardly wait!!!

Until then…….

Tami, Miss October"

Well...tis the season and my Halloween stamps and digis have been seeing a lot of ink...

Here is my card for the month:

I must say that my glitter is minimal...the brads! I must admit that glitter scares the bejeebers out of me! The image is from Sassy Studio Designs. The papers are all From Piggy Tales.

My favorite Halloween treat is them! We are gearing up to do the whole she-bang this SIL and I are dressing as witches to take the little neighbor girl galavanting through the neighborhood!! My husband and I also carry on the tradition set by his parents of having an adult beverage while out trick or treating. His family has lived in this 'hood for over 40

I can't wait for Monday night...nothing better than spending the evening with family and friends! Hope you enjoyed my card ;-) and that y'all have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Thanks for stopping by - make sure you stop and see what the rest of the CG's (see the right side bar for their blogs) have created for your viewing pleasure....

Trick or treating for an adult beverage is my idea of a good Halloween! Great card to celebrate the day.

April, this is DARLING! (Oops, wrong group... tee hee!) We are Calendar Girls today! ;)

Love love LOVE your unique fold... very inspiring, my friend! And that image is soooooooo fun! Great papers and everything... smart to use glitter brads. (Like you, glitter scares the bejeebers out of me, too).

Have fun this Halloween!!!

April--what a cute card. Love the image (have I seen it someplace else this morning......?)

I really like the layout you used and your colors are perfect--great use of glitter as I love those brads.

Hubba, hubba! That's one sexy witch!! Love that swing fold, and the paper choice is fantastic! Your Halloween plans sound like so much fun, and if you have snow, that adult beverage may be just the ticket to keep you warm!! I really miss living in town and all the trick or treaters! Not many here in the country. :-(

Look at all the purple you found! Love it!!!

All of the details are just perfect for your sassy image.

I too am a wee bit glitter inept. I think your brads are just right and pretty!

Terry Ladwig said...

Love Sassy Studio Designs! Very cool card too!!

I am not a fan of glitter either, but you handled it well and with no mess!!

Great card and I love that you always do different fun folds!!

Happy Halloween....and I will enjoy an adult beverage too and think of you ☺
