SOS #73 - Halloween or Food

Happy Tuesday! It's time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. In the spirit of the season, this week's challenge is Trick or Treat. You can do anything Halloween-y or Spooky. If Halloween isn't your thing, our alternate option this week is FOOD: candy, dessert theme, beverages, etc. Hopefully you'll have enough ideas to play along. :)

I don't do Halloween, so I chose to make a Halloween card. I know, I know. Here's my card, then I'll explain:

Schtuff: The papers are from the Memory Box Nightfall 6x6 paper pack, chipboard letters are from Basic Grey, bats were cut using my A*Muse Studio bat dies, and the black lace you can barely see is from SU. (I may have hoarded it.)

I decided to let the papers do the work for me, so I chose an old, old, old, expired sketch from the soon-to-be-departed CPS Card Sketches blog:

(moment of silence)

Okay, if *I* can do this, so can you. Now go into your stash and dig up some Halloween stuff. Or just pick some up off your work desk (I know how we are). No Halloween? No problem! Go with the food theme. Then make your project and come back to the Shopping Our Stash blog and link us up so we can see what you've made!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. ha! too funny! i don't do halloween either, really, so i chose to make a halloween card, too! :) :) :) (things often make a lot more sense INSIDE my head, lol!)

    actually, i think we are just both IN LOVE with the gorgeous variety of images and papers and colors that really only work for halloween, so it does kinda make sense! i love EVERY SINGLE THING about this, for the record, ESPECIALLY that ♥FAB♥ sentiment! and oh yeah the LACE!!!!!!! definitely hoardable, for sure! ♥♥♥

  2. "may have" hoarded it? Sure ;) Love that lace! It's a teeny perfect touch.

  3. LOVE those fabulous colors!!! So pretty - and I don't "do" Halloween either except to send a couple of cards to the grands.....but love yours.

  4. You did Halloween pretty well, I think! I DO do Halloween and I need ot get busy soon.
