Halloween Candy Bucket Card

Hello there everyone!  Hope everyone had a wonderful extended Labor Day weekend!  I know that I sure did enjoy my extra day off today!  :)  It allowed me the time I needed to clean up my house, relax, and get some long overdue time in my craft room...  I have really been wanting to make a Halloween card for a while now...  Halloween is one my favorite holidays, I just think it's so cute!  My students also really love Halloween (I'm sure you can imagine)!  I love when they get to wear their costumes to school, and we have a little costume parade...  I also love dancing with my students to classics like "Ghostbusters", "Thriller", "Scooby Doo", etc...  It also really cracks me up when the boys wear a costume that has muscles built in to it!  They look so hillarious sitting at their desk with these huge biceps!  I could go on and on about Halloween, but I will save some of it for October!  :)  Anywho, before I get to the card I wanted to say thank you to Nita @ http://niftynitanotes.blogspot.com/, Maribel @ http://ilovescrapping.blogspot.com/, and Candace @ http://mypassion4scrappin.blogspot.com/ for passing the Butterfly Award to me!  All 3 of these ladies have amazing blogs, they are such great crafty friends, and I really do appreciate them passing this to me!  :)

This card is going to be entered in a wonderful challenge called "I Feel the Love" that Madison @ http://funkycards.blogspot.com/ is hosting.  The challenge is to make a Halloween card that can be passed out to the children at Pediatric Specialty Care.  You should really check out her blog to find out more about this....  I am also going to enter this at the Woodware USA challenge- Anything Goes.



Mini Monsters- card cut at 5.47", monster cut at 2.41", lollipop cut at 1.35"
George and Basic Shapes- orange circle cut at 4.29", oval (to show candy) cut at 2.88"

Sentiment: Scrappy Moms Stamps- A Haunting We Will Go
Peachy Keen Stamps- Monster Mash Face Assortment
Patterned Paper- K & Company

Have a wonderful day, and I hope to see you around soon!  :)

Your Halloween card has a cute children's look to it with the Mini Monster. Especially like the embossing.

love the treat bag shape card you made! I'm sure your classroom must be hilarious on Halloween :) When I was in middle school all the parents got riled up about celebrating Halloween and we weren't allowed to wear costumes or pass out candy anymore :( So not cool!
