Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!  Hope everyone is planning a fun night!  I really dont like to see this day come and go so quick since it means the beginning of the end of Fall for me.. :(  I seriously wait all year for this beautiful season so I try to just take in as much as I can while it is here.  Our spooky night started a bit early here in Ohio.  The night before we had heard we would have some high winds because of "Sandy" but we never expected this.....

After all...we are in Ohio!  Remember?  Yikes...thats my youngest son's car under the pine tree....
We had three pines down...all of which are very old and VERY tall.  Lots of clean up coming our way I'm afraid and it is still raining as I type this.  On to the NEW challenge at the Stampotique blog     Astrid  is asking for a "funny" Halloween creation.  Who doesnt love that?  I made a tag and then put some magnets on it so my daughter could hang it on her frig...
.

I sprayed some inks on and stenciled with some distress inks for the background. Then stamped "heads" on top.  I stamped "corie", "Frankie" and "skull boy" and cut them out .  They were colored with some random markers and popped up on the tag.  I also made my own tattered looking flower for the top and did some sewing from it.  White dots are from my uniball pen. Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy a festive evening....

Oh, I do like your funny tag! Thanks for the details about how you made it.
So sorry about your downed trees - and one on the car? Oh, no!!! That's awful! So expensive and such a mess.

Oh Jane how awful, your poor son, I bet he's really ticked off, but at least he wasn't in it at the time. I love your tag, gorgeous cheerful colours and fab stamps. Hope everything gets back to normal soon for you (which is very easy to type but no so easy to do I would imagain) xx
