Dies R Us #179 ~ Which Way to the Candy?

   Hello everyone, and welcome to our latest challenge at Dies R Us.

Challenge #179 ~ Anything Goes! 
(As long as you use a die sold at the Dies R Us store) 

It's time to send out those Halloween cards. With snail mail getting even slower, we hope that they'll still get there on time :-) I have a quick and simple Halloween card to share with you today.

It's a Window Flip card by Lori Whitlock. When I saw this SVG I thought how perfect it would be for my flying witch from Cheapo Dies.  Since she is on search of candy, I thought that using Halloween candy would be in order to embellish my card and add a little more colour.  Of course you can't have Halloween without a ghostie or two, so I added a few for good measure.  You gonna have to brave them to get to the candy.  👻

On a side note and speaking about being brave ... this grandma goofed big time.  I bought a couple of Dueling Banjo Playing Skeletons.  I love them! They're sitting by my front door and have music playoffs when someone approaches.  Of course, what this grandma forgot is that her 7 year old Princess is afraid of skeletons and now when she comes to visit she has to go in and out through the garage.  I guess we both win this way😀 I can have my skeletons and she doesn't have to walk past them 💀  But somehow, I still feel bad.  My little grandson on the other hand, makes sure to walk by several times to set them off while he giggles and watches.    Of course, now I'm wondering how many trick or treaters are they going to scare away? 😟

I thought I would share with you what I've been rambling on about.  Of course when they're playing their eyes flash red so it is a little more creepy.  I have to go find something to cover up that plug and cords behind them, because it just annoys me.

Anyway, back to may card ... here is the list of supplies I use to make my card. I have linked each to the Dies R Us store, in case you want to go take a look-see😀

Cheapo Dies - Flying Witch
Impression Obsession - Ghosts
Elizabeth Craft Designs - Trick or Treat Bag
