I need Candy!

Did that post title grab your attention? LOL We all "need" some candy every now & then.......right?  LOL   Well if you check out my card below it looks like my little Trick or Treater's pumpkin bag is empty.  aaaawwww poor thing!  That's why she's shouting "I NEED CANDY!"  LOL Somebody help the girl!  LOL

We're in the midst of our Biweekly challenge at Clear It Out Challenges.  We would love to see your creations using mostly Purple, Orange and/or Black (or all 3 like I did).  The theme is everyone's favorite "Anything Goes".   Our sponsor is once again the FABulous Bugaboo Stamps.  Jodie is so generously giving the winner of this challenge 7 free digis.  How cool is that!  This little darling Trick or Treater is called Halloween Brat Pumpkin and you can find her HERE.  I've added lots of dimension by layering the leaves, lollipop & pumpkins.  It's hard to tell from this you'll just have to trust me.  LOL  (You can read the other deets about my card below.)

It was a wee bit of a challenge to make this card cuz if anything could go wrong or break at my house........IT DID!  LOL  Starting with my washer that overflowed into my carpeted hallway.  UGH  What a mess!  I just got my new washer last night so you know what I'm doing today..............yeppers........LAUNDRY!  But the blessing is that we're getting our whole house carpeted.  Yippee Skippee!!!  I won't go into all the other events of the week.  Let's just say it was the week from H*LL.  But the Lord helped us get through it & we're happy as clams again.  Whew!  We really don't need that kind of drama in our lives......right?  LOL

Back to my card......I've used this GREAT sketch from Sketch N Stash.  I will definitely be using this one again.
