Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween a few days early.  Our Inventory Reduction Challenge #55 theme is Halloween.
I don't usually do Halloween other than having Peanut Butter Cups for the 3 or 4 trick-or-treaters who come to our house and the rest of the bag are my hubby's, if I don't get them first.  When we first moved here we would have 10 to 15 then they all grew up.
Now the fire department has a very nice party for the kids.  The last 3 or 4 years our church also had a party, but the fire dept. is just around the corner so it was duplication of efforts.  This year the church is taking a group to a corn maze on Sunday afternoon instead of a party.

 Here is my Happy Halloween card.
Tilda is all ready to create havoc on her broom.  Oh no!!  She is stuck in the tree already!

Where is Edwin when Tilda really needs him ?!?

in his Super Edwin costume!!   Oh My! Look at that spooky black cat sitting on the Trick or Treat fence Tilda decorated this morning.  

What in the world is that scary looking thing with Edwin?!?

If you look very closely maybe you will recognize RUFUS!!  He had enough of being left out of the fun on Halloween eve so he dressed himself up as a chicken or maybe a bird!  Good job, Rufus!!

I took extra "Edwin heads" and cut out the masks for Tilda and Rufus.  The eyes have Crystal Effects on them so they real shine.  The black cat has green pearls for it's eyes, but they don't really show in the picture.  And bless Rufus' heart! He covered himself in feathers!  Yes, real feathers from my hubby's pillow.   SHHHHHH! Don't tell him.  Then I added some black and yellow Dew Drops on the bottom edge and the front top corner.

This card was really fun to make.  Please stop by my team mates' blogs and see what spooky, scary things they may have come up with!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love having you visit and please do leave a quick note to say you were here.

How funny! Poor Rufus is going to have a time of it licking off all those feathers. I'd advise that you don't put them back in hubby's pillow :) Dog slobber, you know.
Darling card, Kathy.
