Boo-lated Halloween

Yes, I know and will say it out loud...I am a bad blogger friend! As I type, I have over 200 posts sitting in my Google reader. Overwhelmed is almost the word I am looking for! :) Thanks for bearing with me, my buddies!

I have actually been doing something other than eating bon-bons, I assure you! I needed to complete over 70 invites for a Holiday Party, then 45 for a Holiday Coffee, and finally 20 for a Holiday Tea. That was all accomplished within the past few weeks. Needless-to-say, I have not had much of an opportunity to craft for myself, let alone surf the web.

With that said, on Nov 1st I felt the **need** to make a Halloween card. And since I was still Halloween in the US, why not?!



Stamps: House of Haunts (SU), Oct Word Puzzle (CTMH)
Paper: Basic Black, Only Orange, Lovely Lilac, CM patterned paper

Ink: Versamark, Black, Cat's Eye black
Accessories: Black Embossing Powder, Yellow Stickles, Mike's Ribbon, Cuttlebug Web Embossing Folder

During my absence, I also found out I had 3 cards published in Just Cards Holiday Cards edition! It was a fun surprise! They were all Bellas...who can resist them?!

Thanks for taking the time to visit today. My goal this weekend is to get to each of your blogs so I can leave you some love. :)

Congrats on your pub'd cards! :> Since this is the time of holiday confusion......Thanksgiving, all kinds of Christmas stuff out, and I just saw something for the Fourth of July in a store recently, why not Halloween? My son is already starting to ask what he can be for Halloween next year too. And since I just adore all things Halloween in the paper crafting world, its never too late to see some Halloween cards in action, including yours!! :>:> I love that house and the sparkly moon behind it! :>
