Did everyone have a fun Halloween?!!!  We had a lot of fun local Halloween events this last month but on Halloween evening, we went to my brother in law's place to help out with the yearly family Haunted House!!!  The kids really enjoyed helping out this year and it was a big success.  

Here's a pic of the front of the house....

We had some pretty great scares and look forward to next year's which may be at our house! :)
And I can't believe it is already November and moving into the next holidays to come.  Just like October, November holds a lot of birthdays and so my inspiration this Sunday is a birthday card made for a friend.  She loves sweets and cupcakes and I thought this image by Mo Manning called "Cupcake Thief" would be perfect!!!  Here it is....

I had so much fun making this card and I think this image is soooooo adorable!!!  I love the sentiment it comes with "a balanced diet is a cupcake in each hand"!  So cute!   I colored up this cute little thief with my Copic Sketch markers.  The fun papers I used are called "Little Girl" by Echo Park.  I kept it pretty simple and added some Ranger Stickles in "Diamond" to her wings and the stars on the top cupcake.  I also added some light green tiny pearls to the 2nd cupcake to make it look like candy sprinkles.

Here is an up close look...

Here are the additional supplies I used on my project:
Faded Jeans-Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Black Tuxedo-Memento Ink
Light blue rhinestones-Kaiser Kraft
Polka Dot ribbon from my stash

Hope you all like my card and thanks so much for stopping by! :)
Your next stop is Joni!
