Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!! We had a little time last night to carve some of our pumpkins. Here is a picture of Hannah & Jake around Hannah's pumpkin.

Today’s sample is for this week’s challenge over at Our Creative Corner. Our October host, Lori Rider, has challenged the OCC to create a card or project using a vintage theme. We warmly invite you to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.

For my sample, I used an old SU set called Old-Fashioned Christmas. I created a shaker card and then just layered some of this beautiful holiday paper by My Mind's Eye. Stitching was done on a couple of the layers and ink was sponged on to give it a warm vintage glow. To finish off the card, I added a sugared border using a NEW holiday punch by Martha Stewart along with some sugared snowflakes.

Would you like to win this card, leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite dessert is. I will announce the winner on Tuesday, November 1st.

Have a fun weekend and don't forget to stop by the OCC to see the other samples by the amazing and creative Design Team.

Have a fun Halloween!! Hugs & Smiles,

Hey Jennifer, that's one awesome vintage card! You really do great vintage. I LOVE what you did with the Santa image, turning it into an ornament shaker. I covet that stamp set! Last year I was watching for it on eBay for a while. It rarely came on and when it did it went for anywhere from $40 to $80!

Thanks for sharing your cute family photos!
