And a Happy Halloween to everyone! We're in North Carolina this Halloween playing at Trick or Treat with our lovely granddaughters. Here they both are holding the Stampin' Up! Greeting Cards we sent them before we left home to visit them. If you follow my blog, you'll recognize the card on the left, held by Kiara, as one I made for a swap earlier this month and posted here for you to enjoy. Morgan, on the right, is holding a card that I received back in the same swap. Fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Coleen Astalos, made that card and it was just perfect for Morgan with the greeting, "Witch Way is the Candy."
Last night was the neighborhood hay ride and there were well over 60 children and about half that many adults walking and riding around our daughter's neighborhood. Dirt roads and lots of fun Halloween decorations and haunted venues for all to enjoy on a star-studded black, black night. Grandma Robin got to stay at home with the candy to hand out when one of the three tractor/trailer rigs stopped to disgorge the hordes of costumed characters. Lots and lots of fun for all!
Tonight is the "real" trick or treat night for the gang. We'll all be dressing up and going to another neighborhood for some more trick or treat fun. I have to say that, in expectations of "junque" candy being given out, I stopped and picked up some good quality chocolate to nibble during the evening. Harry got to share it with me and all was well with the world!
Before I sign off of this quick blog post, I have to mention that card swap again. The group that sponsored the swap was SUDSOL, my favorite online group for Stampin' Up! demonstrators. Every time there's a new Stampin' Up! Catalog, SUDSOL sponsors a swap so we can all have lots of samples to share with our customers during the catalog's season. It's just one of the benefits of belonging to SUDSOL, and one that really helps me out as i certainly don't buy everything in every catalog. You'll meet quite a few of my fellow SUDSOL member on this week's SUDSOL BLOG TOUR ON NOVEMBER 3RD. Whether you're a Stampin' Up! demonstrator or not, be sure to stop by and enjoy the tour!
Oh, and the stamp sets used in the cards are all from this year's Stampin' Up! 2010 Holiday Mini Catalog.
And have fun with whatever you're doing on this fun spooky day!
