Here are two more cards that I made for Halloween. I used the set Spooky Silhouettes from Gina K Designs.
I have a few more to make to send out to my nieces and nephews and then I'm done, and the Halloween box can go away. The funny thing is...I don't like Halloween! When I was a kid I loved it. I can remember my mother making our costumes and we were always something special. I think my favorite costume was when I was a Geisha Girl. My mother put the most amazing make up on me, and at 8 years old I was in love with that! I had to wear a black wig..with chop sticks sticking out of it! I was a tow head when I was younger. I took little steps to the door, rang the doorbell and said arigato! LOL!
Now, this year Halloween is on a Friday night. My doorbell will start ringing as soon as we sit down for dinner and will continue to ring even after I turn the light off at 10 pm. I love seeing the kids dressed up, but what really gets me going is when an adult is holding a 3 month old baby in one arm and the pillow case in the other and says trick or treat. I just want to scream...Is that baby going to eat this Hershey Bar?
Last year we had over 100 trick or treaters. This year, because of the Friday night, we'll probably get more. I swear, they bus them in to my neighborhood. and it's not like the houses are close together, they're not. they have alot of walking to do. I'm getting a headache just thinking about it!
Yes, I'm the scrooge of Halloween!
***I got the idea for the bats using the photo corner punch from Melmel on SCS. See her original card here. I messed up when I was punching so I just cut away my mistake, and believe it or not the card still stands! lol***
