It was the night before Halloween...

It was the night before Halloween...
and all through the house
were activities of spookiness -

The last Halloween card of the season
(I think!) LOL!
"Ghouls just want to have fun!

This card has die-cut ghouls (upside-down owl punch), digi BATS colored w/copics, pastel background, oval punch, modern
label punch, Halloween paper, ribbon, brads and glitter (of course!).

This card project is entered in the Bugaboo Stamp Challenge this week. Here is the picture trigger (on the right) - the pretty lime, black and orange colors w/a ghost was my inspiration. Check out the entries here for this challenge

We were in the cooking mood this Halloween Eve - got the boys involved in helping! Halloween - 'tis the season for a "sugar high" - right? We've got it going tonight!

First on the menu of "Spooky Snacks" - are the Witches' Cakes! YUM! KV was the man for this job - Alex did take over the "sprinkles"! Finally found the extra-large frosting tips at Wal-Mart - had to try it out! Here's a great website & video here to help...

Next on the menu were "Goblin Eyes" - it took all of us - punching down the "eye balls" when the time was right and the chocolate was soft! Here's the recipe for these here.

But the BEST find tonight, were the

"BOO Suckers"
- this recipe was easy and we had fun making these - now they're all wrapped up to give out tomorrow night to the Trick-Treaters! Found this recipe here! We'll be making these again - easy and fun! Plus... very tasty!

Hope you had a great weekend! Today is "National Candy Corn Day" - enjoy some today! YUM! Thanks for stopping by - remember to hug the ones that you love the most, until next time...

Hi Melissa! I noticed you used the Anita Be Stampin bat but had them listed as Bugaboo... I just was wondering if you meant to enter them in the Anita Be stampin challenge because I saw you commented over there on the challenge blog but I did not see this card in the linky list.
Cute card though!
