I've used Eek the Bat for my Blog Hop creation, isn't he so cute?!?!  I'm always the last one to try a new technique, but not this time!!  I saw this Tent Card Tutorial last week and decided to give it a try.  It was super easy and I love the way it turned out.  You will see me making more Tent Cards in the future.

The new release is so fun that I couldn't stop at just one project.  I just had to create a 2-5-7-10 Box to hold some sweet but spooky halloween treats.  The image is Happy Haunting.  This is the "sweetest" haunted house I've ever seen!!  I created my own designer paper by stamping and heat embossed a flourish stamp on the purple cardstock. I also used the Martha Stewart Iron Gate border punch along the top and bottom of the box.  This is actually not a Halloween punch but thought it fit the theme perfectly!

Wanted to give you a close up view so you could see the sparkly trees and glossy accent on the windows.  For some reason this project just would not photograph well.  It is soooo much better looking in person.  I have some really cute ideas for this stamp coming up!!!

Okay, this has been a really long post and since I'm next to last on the Blog Hop you might even be exhausted (LOL), so now it's time for you to hop over to Karen's blog as your last stop on the hop.  But before you go, don't forget to leave me a comment!!

Thanks so much for hopping with us today!  And I hope you have enjoyed seeing all of the fabulous projects using the new Fall & Halloween release.
