Calendar Girls : October

Yeahhhh...'this the 28th of the month and do you know what THAT means??
It mean it is Calendar Girls Time..woooooooooott!
Our misss October -aka fabby stamping pal Tami- gave us a Halloween theme to incorporate on our cards this month....In her own words here are the details:

" Theme: Halloween

Layers: At least three layers somewhere on the card, one layer being a designer paper {I love me some DP}
Colors: Somewhere on your card please use the color purpleEmbellishments

Embellishments: Two for sure - and one needs to be a glitter product

Blog Post: Please share what your favorite candy is to receive in your trick-or-treat bag and if you participate in this holiday, please include what fun things do you like to do for Halloween. "

Can you see where I added the onix glitter here?
It's on the tree leaves and on the witch...
and the lil dimentional ghost I also added ,is glittery as well:o)

**this is a very simple layout of the inside of the card**


I loveeeee Halloween and creating this card was a load of  FUN!
Thanks so much for this challenge Tami! Great theme....even though my supplies
of Halloween's stamps are quite limited at the moment...:o)
Hopefully U'll like my interpretation on the subject **muwahhh**

My favorite Halloween candie is, without a doubt, Reeses Peanut Butter cup....
and things I like to do on Halloween, besides dressing up, is to
give out candies, especially to the wee ones...they are sooo adorable in their lil
Halloween outfits! For the last three years I have been taking photo of some of
the kids coming to my door (always with the permission of their parents of course,
to whom I explain that such photos are sent overseas  to my friend Tiziana
remember her? If not, check this post here:
to show her our yearly Canadian costumes and share our traditions.

Can't wait to see what all the other supah talented Calendar Girls created!!

Oh my goodness! You've created quite a scene here, Sweet P........ and it's BOO-ti-ful, for sure! Love your card with all its uniqueness!!! Awesome job with Tami's theme!

I really should remember to use the goo punch................... I love how you used it! I bought it... HAD to have it... but there it sits in the punch bin, rarely used. You've inspired me!

Have a great time passing out candy, taking pictures, and munching on Reese's PB cups!
