It's October!!!!!!!!!!!

Time to get ready for Halloween!  I don't do much Halloween-themed decorating around the house.  Most of my fall decorating is of the generic type (pumpkins not jack-o-lanterns) so it can last through November.  I do have a few things that are most definitely Halloween and only on display during the month of October.  One of those is a Charlie Brown dracula that plays the Peanuts theme song when his hand is squeezed....how cute is that!  I also have some black cat and jack-o-lantern cross-stitched pieces that get displayed this time of year. 

I have spent some time this week making Halloween cards.  Actually my Halloween card making started in August when I joined a card swap sponsored by the Bazzill Paper people.  I had to make 10 fall or Halloween themed cards (1 design, 10 cards) using the Bazzill All Hallows Eve paper collection.  I mailed my 10 cards to Bazzill; in return, I received back one of the cards that I made along with 9 cards made by other papercrafters around the US.  This is the card that I made for the Bazzill Swap.

Here are four Halloween cards that I made yesterday and today.

(the red is not part of the card)
(orange & blue is not a traditional Halloween color combo, but I like the way this one turned out)
This card
is not a typical style that I make.  The inspiration for the card came from the Graphic45 Papers blog.
And finally, a fun (that is, quick & easy) card:

I'm not listing the supplies that I used so if you have any questions about any of the cards, just let me know.  Now it's your turn.....go get your craft on!


  1. Love all these. Especially like the one you made for the swap. I even like the cat silhouette!:) Is that a die shape?

  2. It is not a die shape. I traced the silhouette and cut it out.
