What you see....

isn't always what you get.  That's definitely true when I'm taking the photo.  If I'm photographing people, they usually lose their heads in the photo.  A photo of headless people at Halloween could actually be a good thing, now that I think about it.  

I've used a digi image from A Day for Daisies to make today's card, cute little cupcakes with spiders on top.  They have been colored with markers, sugared up around the edges with glitter, and the spiders have liquid pearl eyes.  But I am so disappointed in the photo because those cupcake papers are purple.  They match the purple strip across the card.  Why do they show up more blue in the photo?  Well, at least the spiders have their heads!
The frame and sentiment are CTMH stamps.

Speaking of heads.... I smacked my head so hard on a book shelf yesterday I saw stars!  It still hurts.  My dear mother saw me do it and she was amazed that I moved all the books on the shelf when I hit it.  I'm amazed there was no blood!  
This card with purple cupcake papers is being entered in these challenges:
CCC Digi Creations Challenge #10 - Digi/Borders or Punches 
Eureka Stamps Challenge #109 - Delightfully Frightful
Now I'm off to play pinochle this afternoon.   

Wait, wait....  I finished the scarf for Sue.  (I posted her birthday card yesterday.)  It looks so warm and cuddly I may make myself one too! It's a simple circular scarf that you can just hang around your neck long or double for extra warmth and a shorter look.
