It's 12 Kits of Occasions Time - Welcome to My Nightmare!!!

OH am I late!!!  That's the tough part of Fall for me... it gets dark too early, and light too late!!! 

But Yes it is time for the 12 Kits of Occasions group to card-craft our little hearts out ...  Welcome to my Nightmare is the theme this month - Halloween!  My second favorite fun day! 

Just take a gander at the fun goodies that our wonderful hostess, Jessica Davis of The Paper Parade, put together for us ... fabulous kit, Jessica!  I had way too much fun making cards with your kit this month!  


I hope you've come here from 12 Kits team blog post -  oh! can you believe the darling spook-a-licious-ness there?  AHmazing! 

A bit better lighting this morning for my photos!!  Here are my cards! 

 

Emily Leiphart put this image in my head!
I look in the bag every time I eat candy corn now =]
Oh Jessica knows I cannot resist an embossed image!
 
 
An invitation?  Inside sentiment:  "B.Y.O.B - Bring your own Boos"
As sung by "Owlivia Newton John!"
 
I simply adored playing with these owl die-cuts Jessica!!!
They may have to come live at my house!  Deets, please?
 
My homage to our new teamie, Lisa Elton, who will be
filling in for Cathy for a bit -
Happy to be playing cards with you Lisa!!
 I'm thinking of you, Cathy- big hugs =]
 
Last, but not least, a card for the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog!!
 
Who could resist filling this darling Mason jar with iced coffee?
 
That's it for me!  Phew... was it too much?  It was too much fun for me - I just couldn't stop!  Thanks again, Jessica!

I'm guessing that you had waaaaaay too much fun with this kit, my friend. Every single one of these cards is deeelightful. Those eyes on that first mummy...I'm pretty sure I looked at DH just like this this morning... Stinker (him, not me, well.....)! The invite is fun and festive, and would definitely make a great Halloween party invitation. "Lisa's" card is just plain lovely, and put the pot on, girl, I'm coming over for some of that coffee..!

Well, if this is a "nightmare" I want to keep on dreaming! Your array of Halloween cards is spooktacular, frighteningly awesome, and owl-around fabulous! Your owls and the sweet *Eek* bat: crushing over those! And your pumpkin stir sticks...way tooo cute! Another 12 Kits totally rocked, my friend! (and what's really 'scary'...I commented ON TIME! Yahoooooooo!)
