Trick or Treat ... You're so Sweet!

I'm trying not to get caught up in the Frankenstorm hoopla, but I am trying to get caught up with my blogging just in case!

Here's another little reminder that the current "Too Cute" challenge at Card Cupids is running through October 31st. I hope you'll join the challenge and send in a card (it doesn't have to be the card you enter in the challenge). We're also have a bunch of Special Requests right now.

You may remember my DT card for this challenge, featuring a image from our sponsor Di's Digi Downloads. But I wanted to share another "Cute" card I made, with a Fresh Brewed Designs digi (our sponsor for Card Cupids' November 1st challenge, hint hint!):

I cut the card base on my Bigshot with Sizzix's Circle Flip-its Movers & Shapers die, which is actually Mom's but I cut a bunch of bases when she visited earlier this month. In fact, this is sort of a team project: Mom had cut the pumpkins from an October Afternoon DP using scalloped scissors, and she left some for me. She made the cutest Halloween cards with them, and I sent her this card! 

The "trick or treat" sentiment and green spotted paper are from the same DP, and I cut them out with dies. The "you're so sweet" sentiment is stamped in blue chalk and also cut out with a die.

I flipped one of the Pumpkin Fairy images, and colored them both with Copics. My husband helped me pick her colors, especially the red wings.

I stamped the pumpkin candy holder, colored it with Copics, and took a tip from Mom and cut it out with my scalloped scissors. Thanks Mom!!!
I used the same scissors to
