Here I am again, saying that I have not had a blog post in a month!   I really am trying to get better.  I promise!

Halloween is just around the corner.  All of our fall decorations have been displayed and I have enjoyed the colors and candle scents.

In looking at the calendar, I needed to start on my Halloween cards for adequate mail time.  I have had the supplies for quite some time, just needed a layout and to actually make them.  Here is the card I created yesterday:

I had the gray cardstock for the card base on hand.  The black layer is Stampin' UP! Basic Black.  I used Heidi Grace Designs DP in Jeepers Creepers, which is doubled sided paper.  

I used an EK Success border punch, and then added Ranger Enamel dots in white.   It is the first time that I worked with the enamel.   It is a really cool product.   If you are going to use it, do plan on an overnight dry time.  The ribbon is from Offray in Pewter.

The interior of the card utilized the second side of the DP, with stripes behind the punched edge.  I used my Cuttlebug to cut out the candy piece and embossed it with the Disney Tricks-n-Treats die cut and embossing folder.

Thanks for checking in and I hope that you have a great fall!
