Halloween sticker fun...

I always try to pick up a few Halloween stickers on sale after October 31st. Joann's and Michael's usually have 60-70% off if I wait until then. I use them the following year to make a few Halloween cards.  Here's an example of what I mean:

The witches hats and shoes that you see on these cards are felt stickers. They make for some rally quick cards. The spider web border is a Martha Stewart punch.

Normally, I wouldn't put a mostly black image on a black background, but I thought it worked ok on these black circles.

A few orange sequins added a little sparkle to my cards.

For this card I had just a small scrap of the spider web paper left - barely enough to cut two circles.

The inside of each card was pretty simple with a computer-generated sentiment. I used the "Chiller" font for some added spookiness.

We will soon be packing up our little RV for our biennial trip to some section of the U.S. This year we'll be heading southeast. I'm so looking forward to seeing some new countryside and a few unexpected adventures (they always happen!).

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Oh too cute - and I have a LOT of stickers - as the great grands love to play with stickers. Will have to go through them again and save out a few to make cards.
