Trick or Tweet

Only a few weeks before I can pull out all my Halloween decorations and turn my home into a menagerie of mummy’s, skeletons and tons of witches. Aren’t these adorable animals decked out in their Halloween best?

I apologize I used a retired embossing folder I just had this idea in my mind, hopefully you purchased it last year and have it handy in your stash. Originally I planned to use the brick wall as the total background but looking at it I thought it would so much cuter if they were on a falling down brick wall with this gorgeous night sky background from the Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper.

I really love the “grunge” stamp in the Spooky Sweets stamp set, it’s the perfect amount of “spooky”.
