HALLOWEEN LEFT-OVERS

NO, I'm not talking about dinner.  LOL.  I'm talkin about all those stickers, ribbons, paper, doo-daas that are in a drawer someplace that you bought on sale.  Last year or the year before or.....   That's what I've been trying to use up for these children's Halloween cards.  I used to make about 12-15 cards for neices and nephews and friend's kids.  But that was before grandkids!  And some of those original kids are now in college---imagine that.

I've shown you what I made for the grandkids already.  Went looking for more left-overs in my stash and found some of those balsa wood cutouts you see in Michael's that are uncolored.  Sooo, I used markers and glitters and patterned paper and voila!  Some easy, almost no stamping cards that I hope the kiddies will enjoy.  Don't you love that background paper?




 Oh, then I found something I bought on sale this year:  the sparkly words and pumpkins.  These were in a long strip, so I cut them up and used what I wanted.  I have to say, they didn't stick as well as I would have liked, so I added Sparkle N Sprinkle tear-ific tape to the back where I could.  Added that sticker to the center (its one of the ones that changes pictures when you move it.) 

 And I had one more of those dimensional children in costume, so I wanted to use it up.  Put that with some glittery foam stickers and a ghost from who knows where. 




You'd think I would have put a dent into all that Halloween stuff, right?  Wrong.  Still lots more in the drawers.  AND I just bought 3 more packages at Michael's yesterday.  Can't pass up a coupon good on sale items too!  LOL



Hope that you get lots of TREATS on Halloween!

See you again soon.

Wow Cheesy, when the cats away the mice play. Nice cards. I love the background paper with the candy corn. Great Pumpkin colors on the wood cut outs. I would love to get a card like that for Trick or Treat!
