All Hallows

I'm back with Little Mr P's card.

He is such a typical boy. He loves scaring people, popping out from hidden places to say Booo! and having fun on Halloween. He like bats and spiders and rustling leaves, so hopefully will enjoy this card.
He will be dressed up as Darth Vader when he opens this card. Tomorrow will be dress up day for him at Kindergarten as well.
I managed to use another piece of that ancient VOS paper for the background of his card too. I matted it with a snippet of black card stock again, roughed it up with the blade of my scissors,  and adhered that to another corrugated cardboard square card.

I had a tree die cut in my stash. I had rolled it off at the local scrapbook store. They have a great selection of accucut dies that you can use for free. Thought I would use the tree on his card as he so enjoys walking through the crunchy leaves on the sidewalks on our morning walks up to the school. They always notice their surroundings and he has remarked about how many trees are completely bare now, when we walk up to school.

Another piece of the bargain ribbon, another Pink Paisley Twilight rectangle matted with black card and then I tucked the tree die cut overtop.  I only had to add a couple more MME Wicked Merchant Malvado embellishments and I was nearly done. The "piece de resistance" is the Jolees Silhouettes Spider in the frame.  Little Mr P loved the spiders my daughter put on the porch this year. He gets me to go out on the porch every morning since his Mum decorated, to ohh and ahhh over them!

Here is a close up of the Joleees Spider. He is going to love running his finger over the domed resin!

Here is a peek at the inside...
Think this is a world first for me...two cards in one day. Off to watch some British TV with DH before that 5:30 am alarm rings.

Great card Mo. I am sure Mr P will just LOVE this card. Such a pity you cannot share a pic of him in his outfit!
Hugs and have a Spooktacular Day.

So cute!
My son likes to scare people, too, on Halloween.
He says he is too old to trick or treat though. :)

And Erin has her costume dress up day in Kindergarten today, too.
Happy Halloween!

And another lovely one, that spider embellishment is fantastic. So what British TV programme did you watch? And why are you getting up ridiculous o'clock?!!


Sandy said...

I do love this - especially the embellishments! Boo!!

Tracy said...

This is a great Halloween card.
I love the spider resin piece as well...even though I am not a fan of the real ones :)

This is another fabulous Halloween card, great colours and I love the way you decorate the inside of your cards as well - it really finishes them nicely.

Bats a really good card!! Love how you have decorated inside too. Thankyou for your last 2 lovely comments on my blog. Much appreciated especially about having a sense of humour. Hugs Mrs A.

Ooooh, this is such a great boy's card - I bet Little Mr P loved it!

Hugs, Di xx

MaryH said...

This is just delightful and I can imagine his face when he sees this spooky card. Well done, Granma! Loved the domed spider myself & I don't 'do' spiders. The inside was just about as pretty (?should I say that about a scary card?) as the front. Off to see the next card down cause I'm guessing it is for Miss C. Please tell me you don't have to get up at me shudders just remembering getting up that early. TFS & Hugs!
