Fun Halloween card...

 This card came together so quickly. I used this frame die from In Love Art Shop. It's so pretty that it really didn't take much else to complete the card.

I cut my "Happy Halloween" from glitter CS, then cut my pumpkins and ghosts from regular white and orange cardstock. I did a little inking/shading on the pumpkins and colored the stems with a brown marker.. The smaller pumpkin is popped up on foam squares.

On the inside I cut a dot-edge rectangle, stamped my sentiment and added one final pumpkin.

I thought this card turned out so cute that I made two more of them. I plan on sending them to my three elderly aunts. I think they'll enjoy receiving them.

When you read this, I will be camping in our RV in northern Minnesota. The weather is supposed to really cool down with highs in the 60s. That means it may be getting down to the 40s at night where we are. I've taken along some warmer clothes, and I've made some chili and roast beef to have for a couple of our meals. It will be fun no matter the weather.

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

This is so cute. I am loving that die cut frame. I can see you are going to get a lot of use with that. Your inside sentiment is hilarious. It will certainly give your aunts a chuckle. Enjoy your trip. I actually prefer camping when it is cooler. Cozy up to a warm fire and make s'mores.

That's a really cute Halloween card! I really like that background die but couldn't find it on that site. (Not that I really needed another die.)

What a great Halloween card, Cheryl! I can see why you'd want to make multiples of it. Oh my - you must be freezing up there! It's cold down here and we even put on our fireplaces today. We're going camping on Friday. Should be warmer, but rainy. :( At least we'll have a camper cabin.

Fun fun card - so glad you think of your aunts and send them a card. I know they enjoy getting fun mail.
I know you had a good camping trip - even if it was a bit on the chilly side. Our mornings here are chilly but the days are almost perfect.
