Placecards and test tubes

(I'm not really back, I'm still recovering from surgery)

These are the simple treats I made for my daughter's Halloween party/sleepover.  I used the Tombstone Placecard (it's only a $1!) and literally whipped 5 placecards out in just a few minutes.  I stamped the skull image (Inkadinkadoo set) and added a glitter chipboard letter in lieu of each girl's full name.  My daughter wanted hers to stand out a bit so I added glowing orange eyes.


For the parting gift, I decided to use the Martha Stewart test tubes I've been hoarding--nobody appreciates them like I do! I used a stamp from Papertrey Ink's Halloween Tags 2009 on soft stone cardstock added an orange twine bow and glue dotted it to the tube. Super simple and what kid doesn't love a tube of M&M's?!

That's all I have for your Halloween viewing pleasure.  Hopefully, I'll back surfing blogs and commenting soon!
