Time for Some Halloween Art

For me, Halloween is about laughter and playfulness on a crisp fall evening. I love the excitement of the little pirates, princesses, nerds, bumble bees, and skeletons rushing to my door for a handful of sweet treats. And later come the older kids who are so happy to be appreciated and recognized for their costume's cleverness and creativity.

My way of celebrating my favorite season and holiday is to create. I made a variety of pieces around the theme of vintage Halloween games that was recently published in the Summer 2015 issue of The Stamper's Sampler. I hope that you enjoy these pieces and that they will inspire your vintage and Halloween muse!

These cards were made with two of my favorite Character Constructions sets from the Bird and Bee Paperie collection:

I made this little ball game using stamps from Oxford Impressions with a special bonus pearl for extra points. Are you old enough to remember these? I am (but just barely)!

To complete the theme of Halloween fun and games, 
I made a noisemaker using stamps from Oxford Impressions:

Thank you for stopping by to visit. Wishing you and yours a happy time of 
     fun and games this Fall!                                                                         Laura

Awesome as always! You are so talented it's always a delight to see your creations. I especially love the noisemaker. I am always happy but never surprised to see your work in a magazine. Angels to you. Hope all is well.
