BOO

I'm not really big on Halloween, but it's fun to see the little ones all dressed up.  Fritz is doing so well even when someone comes to the door.  He stops barking when I tell him it's OK & doesn't just go crazy like our other dogs did. Halloween may be a bit much, though.  Luckily, we seldom have many kids.  I do usually send a card to my sister & didn't want to miss the Impression Obsession challenge, Happy Haunting!  I don't have any IO Halloween stamps or dies, but thought the tree die (DIE006-V) would work.  Obvious why the Fancy Pants black glitter paper was on clearance--it sheds!  Oh well, does make a sparkly tree & my sis won't mind.  I cut a piece from my favorite shimmery Halloween designer paper by KI Memories which I've had for years.  The dies are Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles.  I picked up the purple & green in the paper (have to look close to see it) & used the little Teresa Collins stickers to spell BOO.  Finished off with some of my little black gems--$1 for a whole sheet!  I did have fun making this card, so maybe I'll have to make some others for Halloween this year.  Thanks to my friends, Maria & Char, I'm linking up to the first ever challenge at ChouxChoux Paper Art where the prize is a gift certificate for Lawn Fawn. Several snippets were used, so I'll head to The Playground. Always makes my day to read your comments--thank you!

  1. Lovely card Greta! Papi barks when someone at the door too, but he stops when was told to.
    Like you, I do enjoy seeing kids dressing up for Halloween, are you going to dress Fritz?

  2. Greta, this is such a cute Halloween card. The background paper for your tree is so fun and I love that you layered it on the purple. I had a miniature poodle for 14 years and she used to bark wildly when any kind of truck would go down the street. She liked sitting on the back of the couch looking out the window. She went crazy if the UPS or Fed EX truck actually stopped in our drive. Dogs are so fun!

  11. I think the tree totally works for a Halloween card! I like the sparkle and the tiny boo sentiment!! Max would sit in his upstairs window seat and watch the kids come and go as they were trick or treating!
