Happy Halloween

I'm not into Halloween. I think it goes back to an early childhood when moms still made their kids' costumes. My older sister wanted to be a witch so I had to be a witch, too. I wasn't happy at all, and that was probably my last Halloween that I remember dressing up for. I quit Halloween!



To this day I'm not a Halloween fan. But I just loved this Spooktacular stamp set from The Greeting Farm. And I've always wanted to use the Purple Onion Designs noteblock stamp so this 4"x4" card came together rather quickly.

I almost bought Martha Stewart's scary fence punch (with a 40% off coupon) and I'm glad that I didn't. Just trimmed and uglied up her regular picket fence and I saved myself about $10. Now that makes it a Happy Halloween...

  4. Cute card Donna. You were wish not too buy the other fence punch ( as you probably wouldn't use it again). I've got lots of tools, embellishments etc that I bought, used once and now just clutter up my working space!!! How you adapt what you had works excellently.
