Another year has passed and here we are, Halloween once again. Where does the time go?

We've been having some lovely fall weather recently. In fact, yesterday morning as we were eating breakfast and watching the Today Show, I saw that the temperature was the same in NYC as here in central Florida. Now THAT doesn't happen often.

We went "camping" this past weekend; not very far from home, to be sure. The weather was in the 40's at night and upper 60's during the day. It was a little disappointing as the pool was locked and they had no internet service. I always bring plenty of projects to work on, but I missed my internet. (Whine) Of course, when we came home, it started warming up.

Our little card making group has already started making Christmas cards, trying to get ahead for a change. I still have a few Thanksgiving cards to make and in the meantime, I made a few Halloween cards for the children in the family and  thought I'd share with you.

The first "card" is the same format as my last posting with the fairies. In fact, I made this card before that one. I tried showing the back as well but it didn't show too well. That is some orange glitter in the Trick or Treat shaker box.

The next card was made using Stampin' Up's products. I just love the "Sweet Treat Cups". Of course, I had to watch a video - again - to get it right. The first time I made one of these cards, I didn't have a pull tab and the card had to be torn to get at the candy. The fence with the birds is done using a Martha Stewart punch.

That's it for today. Until next time, have a great day and keep safe and healthy.
