Less than a week til Halloween

Are you ready? We still have some last minute things to get to finish the girls costumes up. We have plenty of candy. Er....we had plenty of candy. That chocolate seems to be disappearing! LOL

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! The majority of our weekend was spent on the soccer sidelines. L had a game on Saturday morning (it was a tad bit chilly) and K had a tournament on Sunday. The girls won all of their games and L scored a goal in her game. K had probably her best games of the season too. Saturday afternoon we spent the afternoon help clean up the yard at a local school with a group from church and Sunday night the girls and I went to a wonderful class our church has been holding for young girls. I am not sure if I mentioned it before but I am loving it. The girls meet in one room and talk about issues pertaining to girls while the moms are studying a book called "5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Daughter" by Vicky Courtney. If you have a daughter I highly recommend this book!

I wanted to share a couple of Halloween cards with you today. The first one uses one of my favorite Martha Stewart punches. I absolutely love the Drippy Goo punch that I used for the green slime on the top of the cauldron. I created the bubbles by punching different size circles out of cardstock and pp. The tags on both cards are from Pink Paislee. Just love those tags!



Besides the Pink Paislee tags I used the a green glitter star and mummy from the Boo to You set from My Mind's Eye. Pattern papers are from Pink Paislee and Bo Bunny.



Have faboooooolous week!

I love that drippy goo punch. Looks so cool on your witches cauldron. I'm skipping Halloween this year. I usually sit on the porch and pass out candy, but with all this flu stuff going around, I'm just going to hide out while my kiddos go get some lute and bring it back to me! LOL!

Awesome cards. I love Halloween. My hubby loves to sit and give out the candy. My son is older, so he and his friends are trying to find a new way to celebrate halloween. They are dressing up etc. I'll miss the other stuff now. :(
