Monster Munches and Tricky Treats Halloween Cards and Madonna!!!

Hi Blogging Friends

Just another Halloween card to share. I made this card for my Stampin Club this last week. Kim found this really cute paper for $1.00 at Walmart, it's "Studio G" with 4-12x12 pieces and 4-8x8 pieces... wow and so cute too!! They also had buttons and ribbon to match the paper all for $1.00. The orange button is from one of the packs.

I had forgot that stampin up had retired the small tag punch, but it works perfect with this stamp set.

Do you want to make this card??? Here are the measurements...

Tangerine Tango- main card 4.25 x 5.5
Black 4 x 5.25
2 Designer Papers 3.75 x 1.5
1 Elegant Eggplant 3.75 x 1.75
1 White 3.75 x 1.5
Scraps of Tangerine tango and White for Tag.

The orange ribbon is from Michael's Craft Store, I got it for 1.99 on sale and it has 10 yards on the spool.

Then Rachel came over with more paper and wanted to make some invites for a friend. So I cut them out and she put them together. The spider is Jolee's boutique. The paper is Recollections "Haunted Estate" both green and purple cards.

The spider web and potion bottle are both Walmart stamps a pack of 4 for 97 cents. The Halloween ribbon is also from Michael's.

The skull is also from Jolee's boutique Halloween collection.

The witch stamp is an oldie but goodie from stampin up, called bitty boos.

I went to the Madonna MDNA tour concert in Seattle on tuesday October 2nd, and I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures that I took.

She is in the most amazing shape! She was singing with the mic in one hand and twirling a baton with the other!
