Happy Halloween!

I participated in my very first ATC swap this month. Dawn made me do it! I'm so glad she did ... I might be addicted now. It was an A Muse Halloween ATC swap, hosted by LeeAnne. What could be better than A Muse and Halloween? Not much!

My package arrived yesterday - oh my word! Such fun little treasures. I can't wait to display them in my 7 Gypsies ATC holder ... that I found brand-spanking-new at Goodwill for $4. Did I mention it was already filled with cards and dividers? Deal of the century, for sure. :)

Anyway, here is my very first ATC. Be kind! I used dark gray linen textured cardstock and a lovely dark orange cardstock for the layered base (from Archiver's "free coupon" stash), and some Martha Stewart ribbon I've been hoarding since last Halloween season. I used some of my favorite A Muse goodies - black vintage cardstock, micro twinkle stickers, tiny pumpkin, solid bird, crooked fence, beware, and the bracket frames clear set.

I'm telling you ... I'm in love with ATCs! Even with all of the layers and details that went into this particular design, it still took me no time at all to make 10 of them and only one sheet of each cardstock. Seriously - how cute is it? So tiny!

With that, I wish you all a spoooooooky day! Lily is with her dad this Halloween (they are being pirates!), so the hubby and I have grown-up Halloween plans tonight and tomorrow night. Costumes are mandatory! Looking forward to some fun times with friends and some live music.

This is a really cool card. I love how you created the scene within the frame. It really stands out! That trick or treat ribbon is a great accent! Look forward to meeting you at the cupcake social!
