Happy Halloween Matey!

I can't believe that tomorrow will be Halloween! It looks like the weather in our neck of the woods will be cooperating for all of the local ghosts and goblins to go trick or treating. Our pumpkin has been carved into a jack-o-lantern and I haven't eaten all of the candy yet, so we are more than ready for Halloween here...lol!

I made this card for this week's Blogger's Challenge (Halloween theme) and the challenge over on the High Hopes Rubber Stamps blog (All About Kids). My card base is Stampin' Up's Pumpkin Pie and I used the Canvas background stamp on it to add some texture. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Designs. The ribbon is from May Arts. My main image is High Hopes' On Guard Oberto. I colored him up with my Prismacolor Pencils and then blended the colors with baby oil. I got a little bit of help from my computer for the sentiment.

Let's hope that you all have more treats than tricks tomorrow! Thanks so much for visiting with me today. Have a Happy Halloween...Toodles! :D
