Grand Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!

I can't believe that today is the last day of October! This month has just flown by! This is a little treat can and card going to someone special {hi d!}. I found out that his favorite chocolate bar is the 100 Grand...so I filled the mini paint tin with the snack size bars. Can you believe that the mini paint tin was only $1?! Our local Ben Franklin had a warehouse sale and one of the gals brought back a couple of them. They sell those puppies for $3.99 at the retail store! Well, the next day I wasn't at work so my friend so kindly picked up 5 of them for me {thanks L!}...it was a good thing that I didn't go to the sale because I probably would have picked up 40 of them...sad but true...

Sorry, back to the project...I wrapped a belly band around the tin with last year's Stampin' up Halloween DP. I think the metal rim tag is ala the T $ spot. I still love my SU Fall Whimsy set...such sweet images! The card is an odd size, it was cut to fit my Stampin' Up Baroque background stamp so the image follows through to the backside of the card. The eeeeek banner looks like it is buckled in the middle but it is actually on there like a wave...a ripple...kwim?

I hope that you all have a fun and safe Halloween!
