Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!  I love this time of year when the holiday season is ramping up!  My favorite part of today is seeing all the tiny humans in their Halloween best.  Seriously, I can't take the cuteness overload.  My granddaughter will be a monkey and she is so stinkin' cute it makes my heart hurt! 
I know I haven't shared any projects in awhile.  I've said before, having a new baby in the house is crazy!  My lovely daughter is going to school full-time so I am caring for her amazing bundle of joy, but man oh man I forgot how much time that takes :)  On top of that I had minor surgery a few weeks ago and it's tough trying to do it all. 
Today I'm going to share a couple of projects that I've done.  I usually only share one project at a time, but I'd like to share my Halloween projects before it's no longer Halloween :)
The first card is the ever popular Pop Up Panel Card.  I've seen it called other names, too, but this is the wording I used to find the video on YouTube.  Click here to see how it's done. 

I did two versions of the front of the card.  I'd love to hear which version you like better.  I know which one I like the best!  I think the only thing I would have done differently on the inside is added a little color to my little vampire and perhaps a little Wink of Stella to my skeleton and mummy.  I love moving cards and this is by far one of my favorite cards that I've ever made.   
My second card is my customer thank you for my customers who made August purchases.  I love these little mini cards.  They take one-quarter of a piece of cardstock and the finished size is 2-3/4" x 4-1/4".  They are so cute and super quick to make, but still pack a punch. 

As you can tell, the Cookie Cutter Halloween set was my favorite.  I'm sad that life events got in the way of stamping and I didn't get to use my other "Halloween" sets, but I'm going to figure out a way to use them for everyday projects!  Where there's a will, there's a way.  And then there's Pinterest!  

I hope you've enjoyed today's projects.  I will do my best to return to a regular posting schedule soon, although it probably won't be until after the Thanksgiving holiday.  My wonderful hubby, who works overseas at the moment, will be home and everything else gets put on hold so we can have quality family time!
