Cloud9 Blog Hop

I'm back to the land of crafting.  The last guests left this morning, and I will be recovering and cleaning up from Sarah's Bat Mitzvah weekend for some time.  I hope to have pictures before long, but the quick recap is that it was a wonderful and festive weekend, with non stop celebrating and visiting with friends and family.  

I snuck up to my craft room for a bit today, to try to catch up on what I have been missing.  When I saw that it was the Cloud9 Blog Hop, I knew I didn't want to miss it, like I did last month.

Isn't that a fun inspiration photo?  Since I am sorely lacking in WPlus9 stamps, I had to get a bit creative with my interpretation.  I focused on the black and orange, the word "BOO", and the theme of Halloween.  In my house, Halloween is all about the candy, so I used my A Pocketful: Valentine set to make this sweet Halloween card:

The tree in the photo is represented by the wood grain impression plate, and the spider web is from my friend Carol from Crafty Magra.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  A Pocketful:  Valentine
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream, Smokey Shadow, Orange Zest patterns, book print
Ink:  Distress Black Soot
Other:  A Pocketful:  Valentine Die, PTI Alphabet & PTI Spider Web die

Thanks for Visiting
