First week done already!?!

I can't believe that the first week of school is over already!!!  I am happy it's over though. It was HOT, HOT, HOT at school!  I can't wait for Earl to get to New England and bring us 70's instead of 90-100's.  Bring it Earl, bring it! :)  On to card type stuff...
Before we know it my favorite holiday will be upon us.  Halloween is fun to me because it's the chance to be a kid again.  When you get to be a grown-up you don't get the time to play dress-up and pretend you are someone else, like an astronaut or mountain climber.  The spookier parts of Halloween give all of us a reminder that we should face our fears and not let fear hold us back.  Well, at least that's what I think about Halloween. :)
I made this card with Papertrey Ink's new Halloween Treats set and coordinating diecut.  The card base is an old Amuse square card.  They discontinued these, but I have hope they will bring them back at some point.  These were my fav 'cause of how easy they made making a 10 minute card. :)

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the SSDS challenge.  I've give you a hint, think cool weather.

I'm trick-or-treating here:
The Shabby Tea Room- Old (the card base) meets New (the stamps and diecut)
PaperPlay- stitches
Papertake Weekly- Just the one (mostly one color)
Stamp Something- something cute (I think the teeny tiny haunted house is the bees knees)
