Halloween Stampin' Therapy

You know, sometimes we have good days, sometimes we have bad days, right? The one consistent thing for me is that stamping brings me joy .... it makes me happy! So, when I'm having a bad day(s), I really try to find some stamping time because I know I'll feel better. So, that's what I did this weekend! After doing my "chores" on Friday, I decided I would make some Halloween cards and treat boxes and actually get ahead of the game. Yes, I know, Halloween is over two months away. But, in stamping land, it is helpful it we think ahead. PLUS, I have a ton of stuff from the Holiday Mini catalog and was aching to play with it. So, you'll will be seeing quite a few Halloween items and I hope it inspires you to have some stamping fun!!! Here is the first card . . .

Okay, you're looking at it and trying to pick out all the new products, right? Don't worry, I'll list them all at the end of this post. One thing that I did do when I made these cards is to create the envelope and also do the inside of the card. I find that I'm more apt to send the card when everything is done, do you know what I mean? Check out the spider web ... that 's a new Sizzix impressions folder and when using the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, it looks just like a real web .. like the one that was on my front porch last week!!! Also, don't forget the bat .. he's done with a punch and he takes no time at all. Now, would I be asking for too much if I asked Stampin' Up! for a spider punch? That would look soooooooo cool on the spider web.

Here is list of the products used and if you have any questions, just let me know.
