Happy October!

Last night we turned my daughter's calendar over to October and she got so excited at the realization that this month was Halloween. The older she gets, the more excited she gets for this holiday. And she's finally decided on a costume, one which I think I might even be able to sew myself: Little Red Riding Hood! I was pretty shocked that she didn't go for a princess, fairy, or other pink sparkly thing, but this is good. I think I can manage to sew a cape. It's just one big piece of fabric, right?!?

Tonight I thought I'd share some Halloween cards I made for Purple Onion Designs. I really love their Halloween stamps, especially the Halloween Border Tapes:

I think the single thing I love about Halloween projects is that you can make a mistake and it still looks great! I mean, it's Halloween! You can rip, tear, smudge, ink it all up and it will look great!

Before I sign off, I need to ask for your help, once again. I know that many of you are not only crafty, but great cooks, too. Now that our nights are cooler and we're staying indoors, I have the urge to make homemade soup. But I need some new, great recipes. Can you help me out? Either post your recipe in the comments or email me the details. Thanks...I can't wait!

I found your blog while searching for info on the Scor-pal. What beautiful cards and paper creations you have.

Oooh, I love this card. The bling on the large scallop border and how you put all the patterned goodness together on that first card. I just love Halloween!
