Happy Halloween!!!

Hello Everyone!!  Happy Halloween to all of you!  I can't believe that in 2 months, this year will be coming to an end, where did it go???  I hope all the kids (young and old) are enjoying today and ready to go out and get some YUMMY treats!!
I want to share with you this ADORABLE "Moxxie Swing Card" that I created using All Hallow's Eve collection!!!  I am in LOVE with this collection and it is so
much fun to work with!! 
Here is the recipe:
4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Arachnophobia paper (base)
3 1/8" x 4 1/4" Sharp Dressed Man--Side A (top)
3 x 4 1/4" Sharp Dressed Man--Side B (bottom)
Before I started adhering any pieces, I distressed and inked all of my edges on the paper! To start off, we are going to create the stopper for this card, so that the top piece will be able to swing open and closed. To do this, you want to lay your base card down on to your work surface and then lay your top piece onto the base. Line up the top sides with the base of your card. DO NOT glue this piece down. Put a couple of foam pop dots right below where your top piece falls, as shown in the photo. These pop dots are what will create your stopper.
I then took a border punch and punched a scallop border onto the top of the bottom piece of cardstock. This piece can now be attached to your base card, by applying more foam pop dots, leaving the top left corner without any pop dots. Leave this corner opened since a brad will be going there allowing the card to open!
Next lay your top piece back onto the card. With a paper piercer, poke a hole in the first scallop and pierce throug all 3 layer of paper. Place a brad into the hole, not closing the brad real tight. Now you should be able to swing your card open from the top to reveal the inside of your card. That is all there is to it!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a Spooktacular Halloween!!!  Don't forget to stop by on Friday for our next Moxxie Blog Hop!!!  Stay safe out there tonight
and don't forget to get LOTS of photos!!!
Blessings & Hope...
