Some Ghoulish Goodness!





I just love Halloween.  It's not a big celebratory event here in Australia, but I do do my bone-chilling best to bring a bit of ghoulish goodness to my home and family's heart each year.  Seeing that there is a fair swag of us, we generally try to mark the occassion with either a Halloween party or just deck out our home with a devilish decor and have tons of villainous victuals for all to enjoy throughout the day.  I have yet to get cracking on making the most spooktacular banner but I have a few ideas in mind.  I have though, gotten a wriggle on my Halloween cards.  These are a few of my favorites that I've made thus far.  The best bit about these three cards is that they were all made with Papertrey Ink stamps and some of which weren't even Halloween related sets.  Just Boo-tiful!

Off I go to get the Cuttlebug cogs cranking while I have a moment free.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  As always, It's been a tremendous treat.  Have a wonderful day!

Jen, you are so good at creating "spooky" creations. I love all of these cards, but the last one is my all time favorite. I love that houndstooth with the pumpkin spider and that lace. These are so elegant, yet cute all at the same time. I loved them!

These are so great. I love your use of different backgrounds and shapes. The spider web on the second card is perfect.

Beautiful. Using a different shape as the base for you card is so creative. The middle card is my favorite with the spider web & wreath for all season.
