Ghost

I'm running out of ideas for Halloween cards but I did make one more.

I cut the trick or treat bag using my cricut machine. The ghost I just cut by hand. I cut the arms separate then taped them to the back. Then I took a gray colored pencil to highlight the edges, the bottom and around the eyes and mouth. I added the cute little rosy cheeks with a colored pencil too. I just used a regular hole punch to make the eyes and mouth and then glued them on.
I'm betting that some of the more serious card makers would cringe at some of my methods but no matter, I have fun. Isn't that what it's all about?

Lovely, happy ghost Ann. We don't really have trick and treat here. There are a mixture of things depending upon where you live. When I was young it was knock and run and sometimes children would tie door knockers together with rope so that when doors were knocked they couldn't be opened as two people were trying to open them at the same time.
There are halloween dances, etc and the shops are full of witches outfits and last year there appeared to be a lot of orange and black around.

That's what we have been preaching for years isn't it, hobbies are suppose to be fun, relaxing, enjoyable - pity to those who don't get it! The card is adorable.
