Frighteningly Cute



My summer went by too quickly and I was admittedly reluctant to embrace fall, no amount of pumpkin spice was going to sway me-{yeah right} like a bag of chips once you break that seal you just can't stop yourself from indulging! I drank the {pumpkin spice} kool-aid and now I am already counting down the days until Trick or Treat!
I scrubbed my front porch all sparkling clean, a pristine canvas to fill in with big pots of mums and a couple of Pumpkins, a new wreath for the front door and a bristly door mat with a stark black raven to greet all who enter.


I even marched out to the shed and drug all the containers of Halloween decor in to be sorted through, a real job in today's humid and rainy Florida weather but as I mentioned I "needed" to get the fall rolling! I did a little bit of spook-i-fying the house, and decided to dig out my Halloween stash. I got that familiar twitch that only crafting can cure ;)


I turned to Netflix for a bit of macabre inspiration and set to work, my creations are far more fun than frightening though! I often watch animated shows in the background when I make, I listen more than I watch really.



I decided to only do black, white, and orange decor this year and my cards definitely follow the theme too, I sadly need to shop for more papers and embellishments {I say with total sarcasm} woot!!!I may be a little happy about this, an excuse to buy paper is rare around here!

 I have no idea what collections to look for, do you have a favorite fall/ Halloween paper group this year? tell me all about it, help me spend my money!

I love the "throw back" feel of these cards!!! They remind me of my childhood! (I never would have made cards this cute though!)
I don't know what's "trending" right now in the All Hallow Decor World, but sometimes keepin it old school just feels good!
