ghouls and monsters card

Happy Monday!  It's been a busy week of work, band competitions, high school football games, and concerts!  And guess what's coming up soon?  Halloween!  And that's our BBTB2 challenge theme this week as well.  I have already taken some Halloween themed pictures, as the high school band performed their halftime show in Halloween costumes this weekend instead of their uniforms.  They had a competition going among the band for groups with the best costume theme.  My son and his friends decided to be characters from the Wii game Super Mario Kart.  Seeing him conduct the band dressed as Mario, complete with mustache, and using our Wii controller as his conducting stick was pretty hilarious, as you can see!

However, for my project this week, I made cards to send to the college kids (my son and niece), which will go in a care package with some treats.  I used the adorable monster from the Artistry cartridge with some paper from the stash.  I think it'll be a hit...card and candy!  You can play along and link up a project over at BBTB2 and see the fun design team creations.

  1. Your son looks great in his costume. I can imagine for him to conduct dressed that way was really funny! Your card is very cute with your scary monster and I know it will give a smile to their day,along with the candy.

  2. Oh my gosh - that Mario picture is awesome! I bet the band couldn't stop laughing! Great picture. Your monster card is great too. Simple yet with many layers - great with some Halloween treats. Happy Halloween

  3. Oh my goodness, I love the Mario photo - with the Wii controlling is hysterical. Your "scary" card is pretty awesome too! LOL.
