I'm not late, I'm very early!

Oops! I tinkered with some Halloween cards and totally forgot to post 'em!
It's because we don't really do Halloween.
(That's my story and I'm sticking to it! Ha Ha).

So, VERY early for next year, here are some Halloween cards.....

Haunted house -PKSC-09
Tombstones are ovals cut down and nicked in places.
(Kim Score showed me how last year).
Bats - Martha Stewart punch 
Cut out a 'hill' and extended the path from the house.

Pumpkins - PK-620
Martha Stewart PAP Spider Web

Same stamp used slightly differently.

Small pumpkin - PK-612
Large pumpkin and greeting - PKSC-09
Bats - Martha Stewart punch
I cut two with Spellbinders Tombstone Nestabilities shapes.
Scored one about 1" from top on one and glued to the back of the first one.
Cut an extra one for the 'shelf'.
Copics used on the pumpkins.
Sponged the edges of the tombstone with white ink.
Nothing like being prepared, is there! *wink*.

Well, I'm old and grouchy and only answered the door until 7:00 then I went to bed. Love all of your cards. So unique, and your colouring is fantastic.

Loved the title of the post LOL! Great set of cards. I say go with being early - just make sure your "safe place" isn't too safe! Don't ask me how I know LOL!

they are each fantastic Vivienne, totally totally awesome. Yup, nothing like being prepared for sure, now to not put them in a safe place you never find again, LMBO that's something I would do hahaha well I fixed that problem though, I have a few divided totes for my cards now, with a slot for each type, some slots of stuffed full, others are nearly empty....I need to fix that don't you agree :)lol
