Halloween and catch up

I have never been a big fan of Halloween. I don't like scarey movies, costumes, music, etc. so...Halloween doesn't really appeal to me. My husband LOVES it. sigh....so, over the years I have been forced (encouraged) to participate. A couple of years ago I went all out and sewed some Star Wards costumes for the kids and they have worn them every year since. (good planning on my part, no?) this year, with me being out of town the week before Halloween, we just didn't have much time (or money) to really get ready. Thank goodness I have creative kids. They pulled together their own costumes from what we had around the house. We did also have a Superman costume given to us for Ben so, that helped. Here are Sarah and Ethan. Ethan was suppose to be Darth Maul but his dorky mom put the black on first and then tried to put red over it. aahh....that didn't work. duh! so, he went as a really dark sith Lord. Sarah was a vampire. lovely. As I said, Ben was superman, but he flew around so fast I couldn't get a picture of him. I raided Brad's closet and went as a Basketball Ref. It is a bit sad that I can wear some of his clothes....anyway! The really sad part is...my siseters in Arizona went all out and had awesome costumes! Sometimes I really miss living closer...

In stampin news, I did participate in the Friday Bloggers challenge but, as luck would have it, my computer has been totally freaking out since Thursday night! AAH! So, here is my challenge, a few days late. But, I promise it was done on time!! Our challenge was to either use the same stamps differently or different stamps the same or...something like that. Here is what I came up with . I did two sets, just to try and get it right. :o)

Great cards...all of them. Love the sparklie teeth on the one skeleton! The Christmas cards are equally as breathtaking.
