So to be truly honest, as an adult I have not been a big fan of Halloween. Hold the tomato throwing lol Let me explain… Don’t get me wrong, when I was young, I LOVED to get dressed up in our plastic outfits. You know the ones with the mask and tiny holes for breathing and seeing. The ones that ended up on our head before we left the driveway because we couldn’t breath or see anything. We would plan our route early and head out before people were even home from work, all in hopes of finding that house with the “big candy”.
It was great, when I was a kid and my kids were little. Now I look forward to a quiet night at home with my light off. Yes I am one of those people. Val on the other hand, buys candy in bulk and has to make a few extra runs to the store throughout the night just to keep the happy kids stocked up. I tell her that she is known as the “good candy” house and I am SURE the grown teenagers go down the street and turn their clothes inside out just to come back and hit them up again.
But she doesn’t care. She delightfully fills their king size pillowcases with a bar or two, each time they come by. Like every 10 minutes. lol (want her address?) So not only am I a party pooper, but I get scared easily. Like freaked out. I avoid anything creepy, including my reflection first thing in the morning. Trust me, some days…even you would be scared!! So as so many people count down the days to All Hallow’s Eve like it is some good thing, I dread the days of creating things that don’t have pink cheeks and a smile.
ANYWAY, so here is my go at a Creepy Cute Halloween card that doesn’t make me hug your leg when the lights go out. I tried not to add the pink cheekbones but what can I say, if you are going to put a dead body part on a greeting card, it might as well be cute…right!
By the way, I just googled All Hallow’s Eve to make sure I spelled it right, and CREEP-CITY, that is some crazy stuff!! Why can’t we change it to National Fluffy Kitten Cuddle Day and we go door to door and pet kitties. Seems a little less dangerous, am I right!!??
It’s always nice to have a liner for the inside message of cards. It gives the card a real polished look. Plus it allows you to freely use any 2 sided prints.
Your teens and tweens will love this one. Size is A2. Layered pieces include smooth cutting lettering with light hearted skull and bones. Find theLove You To Pieces A2 Cardat myscrapchick.com
Happy National Fluffy Kitten Cuddle Day!! Be sure to tell Val hi for me when you hit her up for candy!! Hugs, Kristi
