Happy Halloween!

Boo!  Eeek! Shriek!!!  Halloween is just around the corner, isn't it? I have always loved Halloween...I don't remember too many costumes that I dressed up in when I was a kid but I do recall those horrid masks that you wore and could not breathe in or see out of! LOL!  Those of you more than 29 years old will surely remember those.

I do recall that when I was in the second grade I dressed up as Jackie Kennedy.  I don't recall what my mother put me in but I did have an authentic Jackie Kennedy mask.  I thought she was so pretty!  Of course, JFK was president then so you can probably figure out that I am Waaay more than 29!  HAHA!

I made several costumes for my own kids and that was always fun.

My grandkids are going as Flash Gordon and Minnie Mouse this year.  I can't wait to see them.  Wade, the new baby, will probably go as a cow which will have been recycled from the other kids.  ;)

Anyway, onto cardmaking.  I have a few Paper Smooches stamp sets and I just love them.  I like the cute side of Halloween.  I know some love the spooky, creepy stuff but I like cute.  Don't hate.

So, I've made several cards and will share over the next few days.  Gotta get these babies in the mail today, don't I?

I made two variations but here is the first one.  I love the little Frankenstein dude....I colored him with Copics and added some googly eyes.  I love the little beakers which I put some Stickles over.  I hate spiders which totally ick me out but can tolerate the 2 dimensional non-moving kind....  I think he's kind of cute, by the way....

Here is a closeup of Mr. Frank N. Stein.  (Oh, old favorite movie....Young Frankenstein with Gene Wilder.  "It's not's Frah ken steen!"  HAHA!)
And here is a photo of the two versions:
Fun, fun, fun!

Oh, and another thing I like about Halloween is CANDY!  I love candy.  Yep...I do!  I like just about everything except for Jujubes...and Milk Duds sort of get on my nerves.  But Snickers, M and M's, Twix, Starburst, etc....well, keep them out of my reach!

Happy Crafting!  It's a beautiful day here...a bit cool.  I think I'll take a walk at the park and do some crafting, too! 

Oh, and I entered this in the Simon Says Stamp Halloween or Halloween Colors Challenge HERE.


  1. Like the cute Halloween cards. The wiggle eyes are a great addition. Especially like how you added the ribbon. My daughter was Minnie Mouse one yr. Most Halloweens she wore her costume for 2 yrs adding something new the 2nd yr. She was Cinderella, Belle, a Pirate Gal, etc. I remember those masks. I was Tweety Bird one yr.

  2. Hi Susan, How nice all your new work is, but I have to say I love the pic's of the new grand baby the best he is just so cute... I will try to get some new ones this next week of my new grand son. I have new born ones but the newer ones are on my phone, and that goes way over my head as to how to upload them from my phone.... Good to see you, check out my blog and see my Christmas cards for this year, I'm so proud of myself.

  3. just posted a couple pics just for you, I don't want you to be disappointed I'm sorry. I'll figure out the phone too I promise, thank you for your help.

  4. Cool cards, Susan! For me, candy is the only good thing about Halloween. =)

  5. Love both you CAS Halloween cards they're brilliant.
