Happy Friday, peeps!  Just a couple little Halloween things to share with you today!  I saw this adorable inspiration photo on the Papercraft Star challenge:
Our Next Challenge
LOL, these witches crack me up!  I had already started coloring a Mo Manning Halloween image, so my colors really didn’t coincide with the inspiration photo, but I thought I would play anyway:
I printed it off and colored it with some Copics….really quickly, not a lot of fancy-schmancy shading or highlighting here!  I added a little picket fence border and a retired SU sentiment matted on some Summer Starfruit embossed cardstock!   Her images just make me smile!  This is also for the Blogger's Challenge Friday, Witches and Goblins!
I always send my niece and nephew some Halloween goodies; now that my niece is in college, I have to send out TWO packages!  This is the tag I put on her animal-print gift bag:
And after seeing Mary’s project here, I decided to make my nephew one of these treat holders!  I haven’t done one of these for a long time, but they’re fun & easy.  I did mine with a 12x12 sheet of cardstock and some old Halloween paper scraps.  A little bit of stamping (he doesn’t really appreciate that part of it!!!) and it is in the mail:

We had some really warm weather a couple of days ago…perfect to play “house” in the yard, especially with some new Hello Kitty boots to keep our feet nice & dry!
Thanks for popping in!

What a cute card. I love the stamp, and coloring is so much fun. I love reference to my project, too. That was nice.
Hope you faired well in the storm. I was in Brooklyn NY to visit my son & family during the hurricane. It did not affect us at his house, but we did not get to do much sightseeing. We did get to see my grandson learn to walk!! That was priceless.
