Halloween yet?

FIRST OF ALL- Shout out!!
I GOT Top 5 at ABC Challenge last weeks letter C= (Charm) for my midweek Pearls & Lace card.
{:-( saddened no blinky}

I like Halloween, I really do. The costumes, the candy, the decorations, the kids having fun running house to house getting cavities and such! lol
However, it has a different meaning this year.....well ever since my son turned one actually. From the time he could speak, his word for scarey was "bunky"....even today when he says 'scary', he often says 'bunky' as well.
Everything is 'bunky'. His puppets are bunky, our neighborhood movie store is 'bunky', the guy on the motorcycle with the KISS painted face (in the parade) was bunky.....and Halloween.....

oh yoi, yoi.

He gets tears in his eyes & he literally starts to shake when we talk about putting up the skeleton at the front door that sings to the trick-or-treaters (something he remembered 2 months ago....)

We went to Wal-Mart the other day & wandered down the Halloween isle & boy was that a mistake. Instantly he said "I wanna go home", bawling his poor little eyes out!
Now all is says is "we not go to Wal-Mart?"
I can never shop there again. LOL

Anywho, speaking of Halloween, I HAVE A CARD TO SHARE!!

Tilda does Halloween  in Pink & Black. ( & green)
I could not wait to color this up when a friend put it into my welcoming hands.
Tilda is colored with watercolor pencils, blending stumps and baby oil....her face with copics.
Pink paper in the background is misc. with a sleeve of Basic Grey almost down the middle.
 I used my SU border punch on  the black cardstock behind the Basic Grey paper.
The sentiment is from an on line digi store I recently became introduced to ....
The Cat & Trick or Treat bag are from a different site I just became aware of.....
"Summertime Designs".......where everything is free. Free kits of papers, embellies & ribbons!
Pop on over to both of these sites for some awesome inspiration! You won't be disappointed!

So Halloween is cancelled with you is it? Poor wee guy - its hard to get those bad thoughts away once they are embedded in his mind but one day he will laugh about it. My son (now 27 and 6'4"") was terrified of clowns and we never got to circus when he was little and he still hates them and refuses to go anywhere where they may be! Hope you can still have fun tho. Such a lovely scary card, Sheila:)X

Super great card, Corry. I really love it. I'm not usually a Tilda fan, but you have done such a great job distressing this that I can't help but love it - LOL!! That bat and black cat are super and the bewitched sign is great too. I like how you have the bat sort.

Have a super day,

This is amazing Corry, I so love your cards and seeing the pink on your card goes so well for Halloween, which I had never thought to use. We don't celebrate Halloween that much here, but I do get to go to a party he he and I have so much fun dressing up :)))
