Happy Halloween!

Wow! I just realized it's been 15 days since my last post on this blog... time sure does have a way of flying by, doesn't it??!!??

Just a quick note to my friends who have expressed concerns about us... we are fine and made it through "Franken-storm" virtually unscathed! There is some flooding in low-lying areas nearby and our power flickered a few times, but we are otherwise well! Thank you for your concern!

I'm still waiting to hear from some of my online friends in the New Jersey area and my thoughts and prayers go out to those all along our East Coast!

So, over at The Crafter's Cafe, we had a Secret Halloween Card exchange! It was sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and we all got to choose our image from the RF shop! I have been waiting patiently to post my card until I was sure it had been received by my swap buddy!

I just can't wait any longer!! I had so much fun making this pop-up stage scene!!
The bear is "Bearly a Pumpkin" from Robyn's Fetish!

The little pop-up candies and pumpkins are from Lettering Delights "Sew Spooky" set. I cut them out with my EClips, of course, and glittered like a mad woman!!

The papers are from a Martha Stewart seasonal paper pack, I just don't remember the name of it!

I made the fence using something "similar" to a Fiskars punch, with my "trace" feature in ECal. Not quite sure, but I think the haunted house was an SVGCuts freebie... it was in my "random" files, before I started getting organized and sorting things the right way on my 'puter... 

I didn't take any pictures of the belly band that wrapped it all up, but it was fun, too! I made a chain of pumpkins, then glued them together to wrap around the card.... I used a template similar to this one

Have to say, I'm pretty proud of how it all turned out!

Tonight, it's my turn to take the boys out trick-or-treating while Daddy gets to stay home and scare the neighborhood kids, err, I mean, hand out bags of candy to all the little goblins!
