AYSI183 Trick or Treat

Hi everyone!  Yay, it's Friday and it has finally decided to be NICE weather!  Love it!  We're headed for one last fling in the pool before school starts!  I felt like doing some fall/Halloween stamping for today's As You See It challenge, which is a fun sketch!

No automatic alt text available.

I had several ideas for this sketch and even did another card before doing this one!  Not a problem; it was a baby card and I happened to need one, so it didn't go to waste!  But I liked this one better:

My designer papers are from a fun My Mind's Eye pad called Frightful; I have used almost every scrap of it, but I did have these fun moustache and dictionary papers still unused; I paired them with a retired My Favorite Things pumpkin set called Primitive Pumpkins, stamping them in various shades of orange, fussy-cutting them, and layering them along the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the stars and tendrils as well:

I added some black glimmer paper accents and sentiment, then added a little twine bow:

And I had an extra pumpkin left over, so I added it to the sentiment inside:

I confess that I probably need a Halloween stamp intervention - I just am a sucker for cute Halloween stamps, so I need to start early so I can use them all, LOL! I hope you'll play along with our sketch...there are lots of possibilities for it and I can't wait to see how you use it!  And just for fun, here's the other card I made:

 It uses Better Together with Twinkle Twinkle these colors!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy your day and be blessed!

This picture of Cassidy and her friends in the pool reminds me of the nursery rhyme, Rub-a-dub-dub, three men in a tub....rub-a-dub-dub, three kids on a raft, LOL!

I enjoyed your Halloween card so much!! I laughed at your comment about Halloween intervention ...... cuz I need to attend the same meetings. I can't help myself. I'm a sucker for Halloween. I Love it. I decorate more for that then Christmas. My dogs even have an entire box full of different costumes. It's a sickness I think ..... but I enjoy it!! Your baby card is also adorable.
