Do I Smell Candy?

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love sweets.  I also love salty food.  Basically if it's unhealthy I like it.   Who doesn't? 
With that info in mind, you can imagine that I loved the opportunity to go house to house begging for candy.  Not I needed to beg, my mother stocked plenty of yummy snacks. 
Besides the candy I love the decorations, the rich fall colors and dressing up in costumes.  It's a fun time for me.
For this card  I got to have a little early Halloween fun.  I just got the "Greeting Card Kids" set from Stampin' Up.  They are the most adorable little guys and I wanted to ink at least one of them up right away.  Halloween was the choice.  Partially because I love it and partially because most of my stuff is packed away for moving,but I do have holiday papers out. 
I am away for the weekend with my scrap booking peeps at the Hamburg Hideaway in PA so I get to plunder their supplies.  Fortunately for me this is a group that doesn't know the meaning of the phrase "pack light".   Next I go away with them I not bothering to bring a thing, I'm just gonna go from buddy to buddy and pick a piece of this here and a piece of that there and ribbon from Edna! - if it's ribbon, Edna's got it.
