The Dark Side

Inventory Challenge # 47 - Favorite Things

One of my most favorite times of year is Autumn and the fun of Halloween.  Mama really loved Halloween.  One year she dressed up as a witch and stood at the front door with a rubber glove filled with ice attached to a broom stick.  Every kid that came trick or treating had to shake hands with her cold, slimy rubber hand.  Then she would cackle -  BWA-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!

Unfortunately you cannot see the magenta ribbon trim framing the outside edges of the card.  Nor can you see the big fuzzy cat's tail.  Boo Hoo .......

The Night After

One Candy Corn Martini please

Tucked inside the paper bag is a  toast from one witch to another!

And the very back of my Dark Side paper bag card ...

Please visit my talented team mates as they share with you one of their favorite things.

I have a feeling you've already got another creation coming to life in your mind! take care and have a great weekend!

Now, this is a wowzer Sandy! You amaze me with your elaborate cards with so many twists and stories. Your Mama must have been a bit; the scene you depicted sounds spooky to me...hehe. I bet those kids didn'[t come back any time soon!
You are an expert in this paper bag cards- I really have to make one of these now! I just love everything here, the way the story flows, that Gorgeous toast, the frame- saw the lace trim but no idea what tail you're talking (maybe you cut it off:))
Such a pity we don't have these Halloween stuff, seems to be really fun.
Love your card, really spooktacular! Gotta run now, will be back later!
Luv and hugs, Iulia

We once did the similar thing with your mama. We watched that kids were getting close to the door, then, we turned off light, and opened the door, slowly, two of us wearing the GHOULS outfit, with mask, black mesh, no face!!! LOL LOL LOL Unfortunately one kid CRIED.. oh well, it's halloween that do they expect, TO GET CANDIES, right??!! LOL!;-)You have put so much details on your card! Luv that martini & Witch in the bathtub! My kinda witch! LOL! ;-)

Pat said...

Hi Sandy...hehehe! That Mama...she's a hoot!! Your paper bag cards are fabulous!! Ya know what I think? I think you need to put a tutorial on your blog explaining how to make one of these darling little works of art! I remember when you used that witch in the cauldron last year...I loved it then...and I love it this year. So many fun elements to drool over...and your coloring and designwork are gorgeous!! Hugs. Pat

Kathy said...

What a masterpiece Sandy. The witch in the cauldron is a hoot! And the toast is great. Really love the candycorn martini, too (I'll be over around 9 for one, lol). Beautifully done as always!
