Good day sweet readers,

The leaves at the higher elevations are ablaze with color. My little hummingbirds have migrated south, and flocks of geese are flying and squawking as they head south for their winter homes. Fall is here. I marvel that those tiny hummingbirds have the knowledge and strength to fly so many miles and return to the same spot each summer. Geesh, there are times when I can't remember something when I walk from one end of the house to the other! LOL

Well, it's also Halloween time! I love Halloween! It's also Halloween at the Hooked on Craft Challenge Blog!. This month, we would love to see you create a Halloween card or layout. It can be cute or scary! Just have fun! This challenge will run from October 1, 2012 until October 27, 2012. Karen has provided the following items as a prize for one lucky gal. I wish I could enter because I love, love, love the calla lilies! LOL



The Hooked on Craft Design Team has provided wonderful examples to get your mojo going. Please visit their blogs to see the details on their wonderful creations. Here is my example. I chose to make a witch's hat-shaped card.



Here is a close up of the cluster. Look at all those scrumptious goodies!



I just had so much fun creating my version of this shaped card. I had seen several like it and thought it was just such a cute idea that I had to give it a try. Do you like it? Here is the image for the interior:



There are so many little details included in this project. Sorry about the shadow at the bottom of the photo. I'm short, so I couldn't get past casting a shadow. I have used the following products available at Hooked on Craft. Just follow the links to learn more about the products I've used!

Orange Mesh Ribbon
Butterfly Trinket Pin
Teardrop Trinket Pin
Purple Water Lily
Orange Tiger Lily
Gardenia
Skeleton Leaves
Orange Calla Lily
Purple Calla Lily

The inside of the card has a little Magnolia Tilda Witch standing on the hat's brim ribbon. I also used another one of Hooked on Craft's beautiful gardenias! There is an empty spot for writing a personal message. The top panel has the sentiment and a little fake candy bar. It was nice that I got to use my rarely used paisley Nestie dies!

Thank you so much for visiting. I am so happy that you chose to take the time to stop by. I hope you will return soon!

Love to you,

Chris
