Crafty Halloween ATC

Halloween is almost here! It's on a Friday this year, that will be good for the little ghosts and goblins, they can stay up late and eat candy!!

I'm in an ATC swap with some of my friends and I decided to use my Crafty Secrets Halloween Fun set. This is the sweetest little witch I've ever seen, she's defiantly one of my fave Halloween stamps! The tiny bats, pumpkin postmark and sentiment are in the set, among others. I used my Cosmo Cricket paper Haunted and matching ribbon, Cindy has this kit on sale now too! The ribbon is the skeleton that the sweet little witch is looking at. The witches hat has Martha Stewart white gold glitter on it and the Martha Stewart bat punch has Martha onyx glitter on it. I love Martha's glitter! I'm looking forward to getting my friends swaps, I know I'll love all of them!

I have a buckeye tree in my yard and the buckeyes are falling off the tree now. I picked these up and rinsed them off. I cut the pod off the tree so you could see how they grow. The pod has several buckeyes in it when they are ready to fall it opens up and they drop out.

They are such a pretty color, when they are dry they turn a very dark brown. Buckeyes are supposed to be good luck if you carry one with you. I made some necklaces with them several years ago. You need to be careful though, they are poisionous, don't let little ones have them and don't try to eat them! You can read all about them here.

Have a great day my bloggin' friends, thanks for stopping by!

Your card is sweet! I love that new Halloween image from Crafty Secrets...she looks so sweet and innocent! I was going to ask how you cook buckeyes until I read further and saw they were poisonous! Ooooo!
