Only 2 days away from Halloween - do you have all of your tricks and treats ready? I went to Costco last nite, but I decided that the gigantic bag of candy they had may be a bit too much. Not knowing, this being the first year at this place it's hard to say how much to get. There are always kids running around, but still I don't want that much left hanging around the house.

This card is using some paper from Carol Wilson that I've had for several years now, since I only use a little bit of it every year but I do like it a lot. The Spider stamp is from Inkadinkado - and it's a clear set of 10 stamps called Patterned Bugs. When I first bought it, and I got it because it had dragonflies, I thought I'd never use the spider stamp cuz it was creepy, but it is perfect for Halloween I must say. On the yellow paper I used one of the Background Basics stamps with orange ink. It looked like candy flying around to me - ya? The glitter letters are stickers from Target and the ribbon and silver sticky studs are from Michael's. I also used a small scallop scissor from Fiskars, but I used it backwards if you know what I mean. In other words it's the opposite or the negative part of a scallop. Make sense?! Hope so.

This purse is one that I got at the Craft Sale a couple of weekends ago from a great gal named Heidi that I met there that makes them. She makes the cutest aprons too. If you have an interest in them, just email me and I will give you her info and I can show you more pictures of some of her other beautiful stuff.

The smaller picture, is of my great niece. Not only is she great, but I mean she is truly my great niece. She is my niece Jen's daughter and her name is Tiffany and they live in Colorado. She sent me this picture yesterday and I was trying to make the picture larger so you could see it better, but I couldn't. She has a dragonfly painted on her face! Isn't she just the cutest little thing?

Not much else going on today. The only thing I watched last nite was some daytime stuff that I recorded, but nothing that interesting there. I record The View just to hear the things that may come out of Elizabeth's mouth for the humor of it all really.

Hope you have a great day!

Peace and Luv -
