Good Morning!! Well Jordan is back to school today and I'm off to work so just a quick post for you. Today, as I mentioned yesterday, I am featuring the Halloween Party invitations I've made for Jordan's party. The party is only a week away and I really need to step it up! Yesterday his package of goodies arrived from Oriental Traders. We got some really spooky loot, lol.

My favorite are the test tubes- some really icky looking liquid candy. They come in 3 colors and each have something grotesque floating in them- eyeballs, worms or a finger. Ok, so the fingers are my favorite- bloody stump and all!  I will be back tomorrow with picture of the test tubes.

My card was really quite simple to make and I love how they've turned out.  My stamps, both the sentiment and the bats are from Waltzing Mouse Stamps.  I've had several sets on my wish list and picked up 3 of them.  Claire's stamps are wonderful!
The rod iron fence was made by my new favorite punch from Martha Stewart.  The skeleton was made on my cricut using the Paper Doll cartridge.  The skeleton dp is from The Paper Studio.

I am entering this in several challenges- everyone is now in Halloween mode.  First up is the Etsy Inspired Challenge.  This week they are featuring Capturing Creativity and my card was inspired by the halloween kit.  I love card kits!

Join me tomorrow for more halloween madness!
