Happy Halloween...

Olo!

My mom and I are heading to town for the Hallmark October ornament debut this morning. I'm sure we'll be making the most of the trip and hitting other stores while we are down there so it should be a pretty fantastic day. :)

I know that this past week was all about getting an early dose of Christmas around here but now I'm eager to get back to the Halloween cards I've been wanting to make. Today's not-so-spooky creation features the super cute Hallobean digi from The Greeting Farm. I love her, and even though I'm a bit sad she isn't available in rubber I just had to get my hands on her and color her up. I did go ahead and make the most of the fact that Hallobean is digital by printing out her kitty companion a couple more times in different sizes and direction. I got it in my head that she's a little tyke all dressed up for trick-or-treating and her mom is some kind of crazy cat lady so there were plenty of feline friends to join her on her walk through the neighborhood. ;)
And I'm also entering this into the current FFF Terrific Tags challenge because after being inspired by my pal Nancy's fabulous tag cards I just had to try my hand at it as well. It was fun to do something different and I'm going to have to make sure this design idea makes it into the rotation more often. :)

Okey dokey then, I'm outta here. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hi Amy. It sounds like you and your Mom are going to have a great day. I can't wait to see all the goodies you come back with. I really love this little digi from TGF. I too wish she was rubber. I even picked up the little winter boy, but so want rubber. lol Anyway, I just love your tag card. As always your coloring is fantastic as always. Love the papers as well. Hugs Lisa
