Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone has a fun-filled and safe Halloween today and tonight! We don't get any trick-or-treaters at our new townhouse and I miss all the kiddies from our old neighborhood. We even had a Halloween parade through the neighborhood before dark and it was fun to see all the costumes.

Above is a Halloween shaker card I made with a white CD envelope - the ones with the cellophane circular window. I stippled with orange ink and stamped spider webs and spots with black. The witch is from a new stamp sheet from Artistic Outpost which I stamped on orange cardstock cut to fit inside the enelope. I added spider "confetti", then attached a dimensional sticky strip at the bottom before sealing the envelope. The dimensional gives just enough room so the confetti moves around. The sealed envelope was then attached to a 5 1/2" square black card.

This has been a crazy, busy week. Returned from our long weekend in Chicago on Monday night and have taught two days. Also celebrated a good friend's birthday with a day-long art day, voted early and went to the dentist for two crowns.

Hope to get caught up with sleep and art projects soon.
