Halloween Goodies and a Peak at My Desk

I've been busy working on something for my grandkids for Halloween and thought I'd share it with you. I found the idea for these cute little cards at Mega Stampin' Studio and decided they were just the thing to do for the kids, only I enlarged my cards to 4 x 4. I used all House-Mouse images to show up behind the bubble once the candy is gone (that won't take long I'm sure). My DP's are from Basic Grey's "Eerie". So far I've made 9 of these - I have 10 grandchildren but the youngest is only a month old so I decided he probably couldn't eat the m&m's yet - and I think I'll try to do a few more for the neighbors' kids. I'm entering this into the House-Mouse challenge since it's all about Halloween, and What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday so you can catch a glimpse of my "happy place." Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day. The weather here has been warm and mega-humid, but we're supposed to get rain followed by cooler temps - woohoo!

Welcome to WOYWW. It is madness, but lots of fun to see the different things that people create and all the varying styles, tools, etc. I know I'm late, but I hurt my back and can't sit very long at one time. I sure hope you'll be back to join us THIS week, too. Happy very belated WOYWW (# 15).
