Happy Halloween

Good Morning!  Happy Halloween! 

I hope we get more than 4 Trick Or Treaters as Hubby was in charge of the candy purchase this year and he bought the goooooood stuff!  Oh Oh!

I made a few Halloween cards to send out to family and loved one, why I assume adults need Halloween cards is beyond me.  lol

Here are jut a few:

This is the one I want to talk about, and will be entered into the Challenges at; Stamp TV , Release Party, To Use Glitter, Simon Says Monday, Throwback....Sept 21, 2015, To Use A Stamp, No Digis and Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!

I used the Gina K Designs stamps, Buds And Vases and Wicked!  Ever see the actual 'Bottle Of Boos' people create?  (say it out loud lol)  I knew I had to try to make it in card form.
Designer Paper is an oldie but a goodie by DCWV, Midnight Spell, complete with webs and spiders.  I stamped the jar and fussy cut it out shading it a bit with Antique Linen ink.  Then I stamped a few Boo sentiments inside it and added googly eyes.  The strip of green goo I made simply by squirting out a line of Glossy Accents on to waxed paper, drawing a toothpick through one end and then covering it all in green glitter.  I let this dry overnight and then I was able to carefully pry the strip off the waxed paper.  I made one to look like icicles too.  Super easy!  I saw this on Pinterest of course, where a crafty gal made icicles and I immediately thought green goo!  lol  

I am sure they will add some frosty goodness to a Holiday card or two.
May all your tricks be treats today!


  1. Love your jar of Boos! Everyone needs Halloween cards silly. It is the thought that counts. Thanks for sharing the icicle thing, very clever the way that you used them in your card. So many possibilities. Happy Halloween to,you.

  2. So stinkin' CUTE!!!! Bottle of Boos - ba ha ha - good one. Love your layout, and the green icicles are so perfect here, very creative. This is just a perfect adult Halloween card - happy Halloween!!!!

  3. I love your Halloween cards Donna! I too made a few to send to family and friends....wasn't in love with them so they haven't been posted on my blog as of yet anyways. I love the icicle idea! Thanks for sharing it!! It's 8:30 and we have had zero trick or treaters and we have chocolate too....I am in trouble!

  4. I love your jar of boos! And, love the green goo too!

  5. I am confused.... Do you mean that you hope you don't have any more than 4 trick or treaters???? Fun cards. Love the jar of boos. You are so clever,

    1. I wanted more than 4, like 10 times that amount....but we only got 4....pity trick-or-treaters lol Now I have 50 lbs of chocolate in my house.....not good! ;)

  6. I love your jar full of boos and those fun spiders! Great card!

  7. These cards are fa-boo-lous (couldn't help it)! And while adults may not NEED Halloween cards, how could they not be in love with these? Everyone needs good art in their lives. :) Loved the Glossy Accents trick and your idea to transform the icicles into green goo was brilliant! Thanks for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and enjoy that 50 lbs of chocolate!

  8. Adorable cards! Such fabulous designs!! Very cute!
