*Happy Halloween*

We got lucky here in Calgary.... the forecast, several days ago, was for chilly weather, but a Chinook blew in yesterday (warm west winds) and we are sitting at 13C (55F).  Will make it a nice night for all of the little trick or treaters!

Bruce and I went to a party last night at a friends' house... I was a beauty queen and he went as an injured hockey player (he had a puck imbedded in his forehead).  Other costumes were a Scottish Lad and Lassie, a couple of devils, an angel, Charlie Brown and Peppermint Patti, a hippie, Pippi Longstocking, a ballerina (although he looked more like a troll doll) and an Operation game.  We had a great time, as always, with a great group of friends.  We are truly blessed to have such good friends.

Alex hasn't gone out trick or treating for three years now, and this year most of his friends are super sick (the flu, possibly H1N1 is running rampant through the schools in Calgary) so there are no plans for him tonight.  Matthew is dressing up as a character from a computer game (Team Fortress 2) and heading out for candy with his friends, and then to a sleepover.

I always look forward to seeing the sweet little kids in their costumes at my door...  the cuter the costume, the more candy I give LOL!

This is another card that I made when Heather was here... another of her challenges.  The original card was a great Christmas card... but I wasn't in a Christmas mood so I pulled out some brown and pink and had some fun.

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
*Images:  Hampton Art
*Ink:  Stampin' Up! Pretty in Pink; Copic Marker
*Tools:  Big Shot; Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug folder; 1/8" circle punch
*Embellishments:  Michaels Bridal flowers; ribbon from unknown source

I haven't crafted anything in a few days other than stenciling on my beauty queen sash.  Sad, but true.  Maybe this weekend....

We just ran out of candy 1.5 hours in to Trick or Treat. I bought almost $40 (US). YIKES! Our neighborhood has LOTS of kids. Nick and George still aren't back,but Jack came back after 40 minutes. Whew. Glad that's over.

Your card is so sweet! That's one of my fave color combos, and the polka dot ribbon is FAB!
