Happy fright night!

batty for you halloweenTou all you ghouls and witches out there, Happy Halloween! This year I won't have a chance to see any little ones knocking on my door for treats since we are living in an apartment. There is always next year! This year my husband and I can eat all the candy ourselves!

This card design had been rolling around in my head for awhile. I really like the classic stripes background stamp, it makes great patterned paper. Oh and the Happy Halloween on the card is embossed in black and punched out with the word window punch. I would have masked it, had I thought of it before I eagerly used the stripes background for the first time!

Enjoy your Halloween! I cannot believe tomorrow is November!!

Super cute card. Just think of all the candy you didn't eat because you didn't have to buy it for trick or treaters! LOL Happy Halloween

Yet another stamp set I forgot about--that classic stripe background. It makes a lovely background on your card. Very cool!
