Wicked Cool easel card for Week 9 of Pumpkin Blog Hop

 
When I saw my blogging friend Debbie Henderson's cute little candy corn a few weeks ago, I had to incorporate them into my own card! This Halloween easel card was one of the projects for my club members this month. I love those googly eyes!
 
 
I adhered strips of Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White card stock to some computer paper, then used the Pennant Punch to make the candy corn shapes.
 
The card base is Tangerine Tango with pieces of Howlstooth & Scaringbone dsp, some Basic Black ric rac (Tasteful Trims die for the Big Shot), and dotted scallop ribbon. I love the new little scallop circle punch in the Holiday Mini too. It's such a cute size for little sayings like "have a WICKED halloween."
 
 
Each week, you're invited to add your Halloween creation to the blog hop, along with the code near the bottom of each post. When you add the code to your blog while you are in the edit HTML mode, your readers can play along, leave comments, and view the samples right from YOUR blog!

At the end of 13 weeks, one person will get a $50 Stampin' Up! gift certificate! The more times you enter the blog hop, the better your chances of taking home the Grand Prize. You also get a ticket just for displaying The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop badge on your blog. Whoo hoo!
 
 
Here's a side view of the easel card. You can see the bats inside. There's just enough room for a brief note!

Wow! It's hard to believe we'll be in October and another week closer to Halloween! I figured it was time for my blog header to reflect the change in weather and seasons. What do you think? It's quite a change from the pink floral header I had before. I hope you find a few minutes to add your project to the blog hop. Thanks!
