Heee Hee Heee...

Trick or Treat! Tomorrow is Halloween and I can think of no better way to avoid eating all the candy in my candy bucket than to lock myself in my stamping room to make a few festive creations!

Halloween Colors? Well, I guess you can say the traditional colors are green, purple and orange...so I think I followed the line pretty well this week even though I added a few more to the mix.

I decided to make a square cardfront that will double as a scrapbook page for my three year old niece. She loves playing dress-up all year long and has been wearing her costume (a cute little bat fairy) for WEEKS around her house. I don't make pages often, but Halloween and Christmas seem to get the most showcase in my scrapbook layouts anyway.

On this creation, I used one of my most favorite WoodwareUSA sets (I think I say that about all of my sets, but it's TRUE!) called Mary and Friends. I added a little witch hat (QuickCutz) to Mary's head so she and her friend "Boo" can spook the town Sunday night!

I noticed something as I was making this card. I always seem to add a few more curls to Mary's hair. For some reason, I think a fuller set of hair is easier to color with my copics. What would you do? Keep it the same or add some more?

I hope you have a fun Sunday evening and have some fun stamping too! Remember, If you want to play along in the "Make an Everyday Set HALLOWEENIE" Contest, the deadline is tonight. So post your card on Piali's post HERE and you will have a chance to win a WOODWARE PRIZE!!!

I agree with Nancy - this is so creative - I love the witch's hat and Mary's curly hair!! I never thought to do that and I also use this set a lot - definitely one of my favorites!
