The Mummy

I think Halloween is a fun time of year! I really enjoy seeing all the costumes the kids dress up in. Last year we ran out of candy at 120 trick-or-treaters. In previous years we've given out bite size candy bars but this year we are upgrading to standard size candy bars for the bigger kids and snack size bags of M&M's for the little ones. This is going to sound outrageous but I have 160 candy bars and 60 bags of M&M's to pass out this year.

As for my Halloween card... I really wanted to use up some of my patterned paper scraps so I made this card to send to our families for Halloween this year. The layout is a Stamping Bella Bellarific Friday Sketch. The card base is Basic Black cardstock layered with Dark Lovely Lilac. Over it I layered pieces of Fright Night Words and Mummy patterned paper. The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Whisper White cardstock using the Booglie Eyes stamp set and was colored in using Watercolor Wonder Crayons and a blender pen.

Using my Deckled Rectangles Nestabilities I cut out the image and layered it onto a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock also cut out using the Deckled Rectangles Nestabilities. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on a piece of Dark Lovely Lilic cardstock and was attached using Black Crushed Velvet Brads.

Hope you have a Spooktacular Halloween!
