2 days before Halloween and this is my front porch! In Parker, CO we've had 22 inches of snow and it's still falling. The last time we had this much snow the week of Halloween was in 1997. Luckily, most of my elaborate decorations are in the house, lol.
I rec'd this wonderful card from my friend Kim Singdahlsten. Kim used alcohol inks, punches, embossing and dry embossing to create this one of a kind look. She knows of my fondness for Halloween...thank you so much Kim for this fantastic card! - Kris
I found this witch tally on Ebay several years ago. It's my favorite as I think the graphics are fantastic. This should be made into a stamp. No information on the manufacturer but it dates to the 1920s.
***(Please click on picture to see the details close-up!)*** I am guest hosting for Louise Granlund: http://kardkrazy.blogspot.com/ this week at Tag Tuesday. Please create a tag in the shape of a boot or shoe (it does not have to be Halloween...any theme goes)! Please post your tag to your Blog or Flickr album and link it to this blog in the comments section of this post. Can't wait to see what you create!
***Of course, I can't do a challenge without offering blog candy to a lucky winner. Post your shoes/boots to this post by Saturday, October 24rd and on Sunday I will use random.com to pick a lucky winner! (I'm cutting it off a couple of days early so that I can get the blog candy to the winner BEFORE Halloween!)***
I had 10 entries this week in the challenge and I've plugged in the numbers and lucky #2 is the winner - CONGRATULATIONS to Gayle Page-Robak! Gayle, I'll have your candy in the mail tomorrow! Thanks to everyone that participated and Happy Halloween!
If you're a child from the 1960s you have to remember those little paper treat bags. Scott Hueston with True Vintage Designs has created wonderful, vintage inspired T-Shirts. You can find this shirt and more at: http://shop.truevintagedesigns.com/main.sc

I hope you enjoy a trip back through yesteryear....Happy Haunting!
