Happy Halloween!

Happy Monday & Happy Halloween everyone!  This is going to be a quickie!

Bantastic flags from The Greeting Farm
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Today is the last day of the month and that means it's getting closer to Thanksgiving and then Christmas!!  Wow, this year is pretty much flying by don'tcha think? 

Well we've still got today to celebrate October and what better way than to come and play with us at Lollipop Crafts!  Challenge #55 is a free for all with both the A & T Teams participating.  It's an anything goes challenge, there is no sponsor but we hope you'll play along anyway.  Head on over to the Lollipop Crafts blog to see all the creations by both teams and then link up your card.

This post will serve two-fold.  One for my Lollipop Crafts post but also to share the card I made for my October Secret sister.  I don't want to say who it is yet, because I anticipate her getting it today, at least that's what the postal worker said.  I hope he's right.  The theme for October was you probably guessed, Halloween.  I chose to go with a few of my favorite stamp lines.  First Pumpkin Marci, who was perfect for this theme, from La-La Land Crafts; a sentiment from AmyR & the Bantastic clear stamp set from The Greeting Farm.  I also used the CC Designs Cutter Spooky fence  and Spellbinders.

The paper is from DCWV as well as the pumpkins.  I wrote in the Trick or Treat on the banners and added some clear orange stones.  Distressed the sign a bit, and doesn't that sentiment fit perfectly?  I thought so.    I hope my Secret sister likes the card and the goodies I sent with it. 

Before I sign off, I wanted to send out a big Thank you to Linda our Guest Designer for giving us some wonderful inspiration! :)

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween.

Many thanks for stopping by!
