Halloween is coming...

Halloween has to be one of my favorite holidays! We always go all out on decorating the house and yard. As a family we have tons of fun setting up the cemetery, the fog machines, the black lights, the spider webs...you get the picture I'm sure. I'll post pics of our house decked out this year...


On to the cards now!! This first card is an updated version of a Halloween card I made last year, and it is cute and simple. I really do like this Ghostly Greetings DS paper, and I thought the bats would be perfect for this card. I also used a wider ribbon than last year for the embellishment and boy does it make a difference!!!


After doing the first card I wanted to step it up a notch - so this is what I came up with...I'm loving this kicked up version! I used the idea on page 27 of the Fall-Winter IBC 2008 to color my cat green and added a Kiwi Kiss triangle to the front of the card to help balance the colors out.


These are the first two cards for my 5 card challenge using Haunting Halloween...be on the look out for more to follow soon.
