 The special stamp set we have for you this month is: "Holiday Tag"
The mini stamp set we have for you this month is:
"Nature's Brushstrokes"

Many of you know I don't really celebrate Halloween but I do have a friend with a Birthday on 31st October and having recently "won" these cute little gravestones from Bibiana who works with Memory Box I just had to make these cards.  I think the little ghost with the pumpkin is so cute in today's set.  I also used the bats from MFP Halloween Selections.

This first card is for a Birthday and uses a sentiment from Birthday Mini.

This one uses the Memory Box die I won and I also used the icicles from Ice and Snow

This last one uses the cat from the set to make a simple Birthday card.  I used a Spellbinders die and threaded with ribbon.  I used Memento inks for the sentiments which are from the set called What a Fox.
Here's the Design Team so you can check out all the creations:

  5. That second card is so funny. Gave me a chuckle already this morning. The bats look great with the ghost.

  7. You used these sets so well on non-Halloween cards! The icicles definitely look spooky on that second card.
