Mama? How many more sleeps 'til Halloween?

I am too excited for Halloween.  I can't drive by a Halloween store without slamming on the brakes and running inside, to try on hats and play with motorized 'Zombie Babies.' 

Until I can decide what my costume will be this year, I'm keeping myself busy with random Halloween projects. 

The first project this week?  This cute Halloween tag! 

I used a Martha Stewart Halloween stamp set to get the witch hat.  I cut it out and stuck it on the top of the guy- he's one of my favorite stamps from Catslife Press.   I stuck a fall-colored 'jewel' over the number on the guy's suit, since the number '14' didn't seem too Halloweeny.  The skeleton in the background is from one of the new Crafter's Workshop templates!  There's also a strip of Martha's Halloween paper tape and lots of Distress Ink colors.


  1. Great tag. I too adore Halloween you should check out my post about the bottles I made and my home decor. http://craftdonkey.blogspot.com/2012/09/halloween-decor-galore.html

  2. I really like the guy in the hat very creatived.

  3. Your excitement is contagious!!! Can't wait to see what costume you finally opt for. My favourite idea was Wednesday in Addams Family who decided upon being a serial killer, because they looked just like ordinary people lol. Great tag, love that touch of whimsy with the monocled guy in a witches hat. Pxx

  4. Oh, yeah my (plastic) skeleton... Can't, wait till halloween. His, name is Haldir and he thinks 'Halloween is the bestest'. We're, waiting for the halloween stores in our area to show up.
