Best Witches

Halloween is fast approaching!  I hope all your little trick or treaters are getting their costumes ready.  I love making cards for Halloween but it always seems the time passes way too quickly!  I remember the excitement of choosing my costume or better yet, searching through my mom's clothing and sewing basket creating my own exotic creation.  Then we were off to the neighborhoods that had the reputation for the best candy and raced from door to door.  Our weather was usually still warm and we happily sweated and tripped over too long outfits making sure we did not miss a single house with a light on.  Tricks?  Nah, we were all too well raised to even think of playing any tricks and we knew our parents would wear our bottoms out!  We just gloried in our bags bursting at the seams and could hardly contain our hunger and excitement until parents first checked every piece of candy or treat.  Then we were in a sugar coma for a week!  

Here is a card using Create with TLC images and Cricut spiderwebs complete with oodles of spiders and the requisite black cat:

Fantastic Halloween cards, Marsha! Love how you used Paulette's images! I find Halloween cards so hard to make!

Marsha, I remember the fun of Halloween as a kid, too. But back in my day, no one had to check the candy--it was always safe...
Anyway, love both of your cards--great use of Paulette's images and sentiments! And love the web and spideys, too! :^)
Hugs, Penny
