Happy Halloween

If you have been reading my blog for a while you know that I am not a fan of Halloween.  I live in Northern New York and it seems that the first snow always liked to happen on the 31st.  If it wasn’t actually snowing, it was a very cold rain.  I mean freezing rain.  The kids would be crazy from eating too much junk food at school and inevitably one of them would have a meltdown.  We were pretty strict with what they could eat that night but it was hard to control the day at school.  As they got older they wanted to go out with their friends.  This always made me nervous too but thankfully they were “good” kids and didn’t get into much trouble (at least that I know about!).

As a result of this, I don’t have a lot of Halloween stamp sets.  I don’t really know why because some of them are adorable. I did buy the Cat Punch which I think works pretty well with a Halloween themed card.  I cut out a circle using the Layered Circles Dies.  The moon and stars are a die in the Card Front Builder Set which is the in the Holiday Catalog.  I do apologize though.  The sentiment is from a retired set.

Happy Halloween.  May your day be full of fun goblins, no meltdowns and warm weather!

New Stampin’ Up! Cat Punch

Although I am not a cat lover or a Halloween card maker, I love the new Stamping’ Up! Cat Punch that is in the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  I just think it is very cute and as long as it doesn’t cross my path, I will be ok.

When I was in high school a friend and I were going to visit my grandparents in Vermont. They used to live in Manchester Depot which is near Bromley, Magic Mountain and Stratton ski resorts and we loved to ski.  We left super early one morning and on my way to pick up my friend a black cat crossed my path.  I was not (and am still not) a very superstitious person but later that day I hit black ice and totaled my parents car.  It makes you wonder but I think I’ll be ok with this punch.

This punch has a matching stamp set called Spooky Cat and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  You can use them for Halloween or not.  Cats are year round animals!  The sentiment is from Dragonfly Dreams and the background was made using the Brick Embossing Folder.
