Happy Halloween!

Hi stampers!  Happy Halloween!  I can't believe it's here already!  I got almost NOTHING done.  I don't have any candy, I didn't make any treats, and I barely made any cards let alone sent any!  And usually I LOVE Halloween but I just wasn't as into it this year.  Oh well.  We did go to our annual party this past weekend though and it was fun!  I was Snow White and hubby was Bane from the newer Batman movie. I think I'll go as an eskimo next year....it's always so cold by the end of October, lol!  I'm probably not going to dress up at work today:(  I'm at a different clinic now on Wednesday's and I don't know if many (if any) people will dress up and I just don't feel comfortable there.  Oh well...

Anyway, I got on a roll yesterday afternoon and cranked out a few more last minute Halloween cards...so I have THREE to share today!  I figured there isn't any point of saving them to share after the fact, ha!  And all three are a bit out of my usual style or comfort zone...at least I think so anyway....what do you think?

The first is using the Colour Q challenge this week.  It actually got me in the mood to do these last minute cards...so thanks!  I did sub the white for very vanilla since it's used in the DSP and I was planning on using some (even though I didn't in the end).
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Googly ghouls, border banter
Paper:  Very vanilla, basic black, tangerine tango
Ink:  Basic black, tangerine tango, daffodil delight, so saffron
Accessories:  Googlies

Next up is a card I made based of an old sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  I was on a roll with the googly stamp set and I have a lot of this DSP left that I wanted to use....not to mention the ribbon....
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Googly ghouls, border banter, teeny tiny wishes
Paper:  Very vanilla, basic black, basic gray, howlstooth & scaringbone DSP
Ink:  Basic black, tangerine tango
Accessories:  Wide oval punch, googlies, sizzlit die

I really like the way it turned out although it is different for me!

And finally, I was looking over some cards I made last year and I wanted to dig out an old set....out on a limb.  So, I rounded out the night with this card using a sketch from Retrosketches that I couldn't seem to do anything with last week.
Sorry if I overwhelmed you today:-)  I hope you're still with me!  And I hope you have a very Happy Halloween and get lots of candy!  I'm going to try to stay away from the stuff...we'll see!!!

Happy stamping!  And spooking!!!!!
