Boo 2 u!

Hi there.

Once again, it has been a while, but today I'm back with a Halloween themed post.

Every year we have a Halloween Street party. Since Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year, we decided to have our party last Sunday.

I had purchased the Googly Ghouls stamp set, and thought it would be perfect for our invites.

Each year we put an invite into each letter box in our street. We include a balloon with each one. If our neighbours would like to participate in 'trick or treat', by having the children knock on their door, they blow up their balloon and tie it to their fence or letterbox. If there is no balloon out, then we leave them alone. This seems to work well. Since we are in a small cul-de-sac, we get most houses participating. After the kids are done, we then have a BBQ at one of the neighbours houses.

For the invites I chose the colours, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, Whisper White, Summer Starfruit and Silver Glimmer Paper.

The DSP is retired, I think it was from last years catty. I used the Mummy stamp and added one of our adhesive googly eyes.

I ran the black card stock  through the Big Shot with the Polka Dot embossing folder, to add a bit of texture and interest. 

I had to make 12 of these, so I didn't want to add to much detail. I wanted something simple and easy to mass produce.

The neighbours all thought the invites were cute, which is nice!

I'll be back tomorrow to show the goody bags I made for the kids that came to 'trick or treat'.

Thanks for stopping by!
