HALLOWEEN CARDS MADE EASY

As you might be able to guess, I   l-o-v-e  Halloween.  I always send all the children in the family a card so I need a few of them.  lol  After spending lots of time of the ones I posted previously, I was ready for some easier ones.

Here we go.  These two cards were done with those plain wooden cutouts you see at Michael's or JoAnn's.  Purchased last year for 10 cents each.  I colored with markers and added glittery accents with glitter pens.  All that was needed was some appropriate background paper, again bought on sale.  I am guessing that these card only cost around 50 cents or less to make.  Not bad!

Next, I had this package of metal brads.  Here is a house with 3 ghosts (all metal brads).  Add them to some great designer paper and you have it.  Guess I could have added some bling, but I needed to get them in the mail.....going out of state:

The last cards were made using stickers (again on sale last year).  These stickers are soooo cute.  I really love them.  This first one below uses the same designer background paper as above.  Just add a couple of stickers and its as cute as a frog!  LOL

Two more cards using cute stickers.  Add a fun paper.  Super easy and almost no stamping!  Well, I did stamp the sentiments inside, I just forgot to take pictures!


Don't forget to go looking for all these fun things on sale the day after Halloween.  Some may be on sale now, but they will be even cheaper afterwards.  Happy shopping!

Check in tomorrow for some cards made with photographs I have taken.  I love doing this and maybe you will too.

I am entering the Wooden Cutout Pumpkin into the following challenges:

OOOOPS me again - I named the wrong challenge (sooo red in the face) as I'm popping in and out of the two challenges that I'm a DT for. I really meant to say "thanks for joining us this week at 'ABC' Challenges"!
