Stampin’ Up! Halloween Card Wishes

This is a very special Halloween card made with a mother's love (and MDS) for my daughter, Caroline!   She posed for the photo at the age of 2 in 1996.   I vividly remember instructing her to hold up the tail of her lion costume (see her left hand) while I gleefully took the shot thinking I had never seen anything so adorable! 

She's a freshman in college now but photos of sweet memories like these get new life when coupled with the creative possibilities offered in Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio.  My favorite feature of MDS is the ability to incorporate photos into my paper crafting projects.

I added Stampin' Up! Regals Designer Buttons and a touch of Linen Thread to the front after having it printed through Stampin' Up!'s printing
services.  The price is the same whether I print on just the front or all four sides of the card and the quality and color matching (SU colors) are fabulous.

Above is a delightful Halloween thank you card I received from my darling nephew (actually grand nephew), Devlin.  He used patterns and googlie eyes with perfection and his note below is the essence of why I love hand written notes.

The adorable 3 x 3 card below was made by my dear friend, Kadie Labadie.  The witch's hat and boots were embossed in black and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

I did a little digging in my Stampin' Pretty Gallery and came up with some favorite Halloween Cards from the "crypt!"  Enjoy.

    Have a great day. Up here is very windy due to “Sandy”, we have gusts of about 50 m/h. I’m so glad we racked all the leaves last week and they were picked up otherwise, all that hard work would have been “gone with the wind”.
