Happy Fright Night!

Using what I have is SO addicting and FUN! I created two more cards with items I haven't used for a long time!

I used an older Stampin' Up set called "Tricky Treats" to stamp that adorable ghost! Now, this stamp set is older, but it is new to me since I just picked it up at a rubber stamp flea market. This is my first time using it. However, I did use "Bitty Boos" to stamp the cat, the spider, and the word "Boo!". I haven't used my Bitty Boos stamp set for a LONG time! I also pulled out a Doodlebug Halloween striped paper that I've had for years. Once again, I don't know what I was saving it for! I did a lot of distressing with black ink on these cards. I thought adding the Tootsie Pops was just too cute! I also added some dots of Stickles in purple and orange. On each card, I added a QuicKutz large photo corner to the card front. I Cuttlebug embossed it using the tiny bubbles embossing folder, and I distressed it in black. As a final touch, I added googly eyes to the ghosts. I LOVE googly eyes!

I like the way these turned out. I'm going to send them to my nephew and niece for Halloween. I'll just put them in a small padded envelope, and I'll hope the Tootsie Pops don't break in the mail!

Thanks for stopping by!

They are cool cards! I love the idea of the lollipop attached to the card - that's such a good idea for any kid's card! Thanks too for for the wishes for my Mum xx
