Cheater-Cheater Pumpkin-Eater!!

You KNOW we all have stuff that is "retired" ... "old" ... "NON-Stampin' UP (GASP!!) ... right??? Well, actually ... everything on this card IS Stampin' UP, but it's not all current stuff (which kinda makes me a cheater) ...

A couple of years ago when they came out with the swirly-blingy black rhinestones in the Holiday Mini I was STOKED!! And when they put those same swirly-blingy black rhinestones on the clearance rack about six months or so ago, I JUMPED on 'em!! Soooo ... now I have a bunch of those swirly-blingy black rhinestones, so I decided it was high time to use 'em!!

AND ... I felt like it was high time to make me another Halloween card!! I have been SOOO negligent in my Halloween creating this year. Not sure WHERE the time is going, but it just seems to be zipping along!!

Because I thought this was so classic, I decided to share with you the most epically COOL and FUN photo we have EVER taken on Splash Mountain. We had no plan ... we all just decided to be our genuinely dorky selves (this was during one of the Halloween parties that Disneyland hosts during October ... which is why I was dressed as Maleficent and my daughter was dressed as Pikachu ... my son??? We're not quite sure WHO he was ... just a weird dude, I guess!) We were laughing SO hard when we saw it at the end of the ride I just knew I HAD to buy a copy of this! Halloween CLASSIC!!

Halloween is definitely a time for child like zany fun! Loved the black rhinestones and looks like you cornered the market on them?

We don't really do Halloween (in the UK, and my kids are a bit old), but that card is soooo cool! almost tempted for next year!

I love that kitty! The sponging on the edges make everything pop.

Doesn't it feel good to use up some of your "stash". I'm not a huge Halloween fan, but this card is beautiful!
