Happy Halloween Cards with Stamps You Can Win!

It's Crackerbox Palace Thursday and today I am sharing some fun Halloween cards I made with stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. You can win your choice of the stamps featured on one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning this week’s blog candy are below.
But first- the winner of last week’s blog candy of the stamps featured on one of the cards last Thursday is                           Marilyn!  Here is her winning comment from my blog:  “Fabulous and inventive cards Karen, both gorgeous! 
Marilyn, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want, so we can get you the stamps you have won.  And remember you can win another CBP stamp of your choice simply by posting a card you made with the stamps you won to your blog or Splitcoast Stampers gallery and sending us a link.
My cards today are Halloween cards for my kids. I love the joke the first one tells – hope it makes you chuckle too. Other than the Happy Halloween on the inside, these stamps could make a funny card for any time of the year. It features “Slimy” and a piece of popcorn and of course the lol sentiment. 

My second card could be for an older child or even an adult. I love the tree stamp and it could be used (too) for a lovely non-Halloween card. I created an oval frame with my Nestabilities dies and added a spider and spider web in the corner.
So would you like to win the fun stamps featured on one of today’s cards? Here is how to win our weekly blog candy:

 1.) We have decided that becoming a follower on both blogs is going to be something we would prefer you do but not a requirement.  My blog is here and the Crackerbox Palace blog is here. 

2.) Leave a comment on either my blog or the Crackerbox Palace blog on the Thursday blogpost featuring CBP stamps.  If you leave a comment on BOTH blogs, you will be entered twice in the drawing.   The deadline to leave a comment will be the following Wednesday at Noon CST. Mr. Random will pick a winner from the comments and he or she will win the featured stamp(s). You must send me ( or Crackerbox Palace (  an email with your home address so the stamps can be mailed to you. If we do not hear from you within two weeks after we announce your win, and we can’t reach you through a blog, your prize will be forfeited.  And if you post a card to your blog or to Splitcoast Stampers with the stamps you won and send a link to Crackerbox Palace, you will win another Crackerbox Palace stamp of your choice!!

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenge at Tuesday Alchemy and the challenge at Clear it Out Challenge to use orange, purple or black.

Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen

Marilyn, these are wonderful for Halloween! Love Slimy and all the popcorn - so cute, inside and out.
Love the tree on the second one too.
Great job!

Karen Schroeder said...

Love the stamps! The first card is hysterical!

That 'fingers' sentiment is too silly and fun, Karen! Both of these are great cards. I'm going to be smiling the rest of the day!

What fun cards Karen and I couldn't pick a favourite because I like them both for different reasons. Slimy just cracks me up... funny sentiment and image and the web/trees is what I think of at Hallowe'en... spiders, webs, gnarly trees.

Oops.....that should have been KAREN - not Marilyn! I just saw Marilyn's name and had a "senior" moment!
