Spooky Treats...MUSE #132

Hello,

Yes, I'm back...and I'll be quick after my previous post's chit-chat.

Over at MUSE #132, talented, brilliant and witty Joan tempted us with this sentiment-starring-role gem that truly lifts my spirits every time I see it (and trust me, it's received plenty of views!)"


No set similar to hers resides in my collection, but I did my best to come 'close'...okay, close-ish.  I'll be embarking soon on my Halloween-cards only diet for the next while, so I figured this would be a good warm-up...


NOTE: Thrilled and honoured to be one of the Honourable Mentions over at MUSE! THANK YOU!

Pretty straight-forward:  my Spooky treats sentiments, paired with Taylored Expressions Little Bit Halloween images and some colourful Halloween-starred paper from Doodlebug.

Thank you for the inspiration, Joan (and I'm going to check out that set you used right now!).

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,

Ditto Bev's comments...I really, REALLY love your non scary card! Can't understand why H'ween needs to be scary and gory! Sweet star DP - fabulous way to showcase the sentiments! Brilliant pop of orange from the pumpkin too :)
