When I made the move from the west coast to the east coast, I had to learn how to communicate differently.  For example, days were no longer "hella" hot, but rather "mad" hot.  And, apparently it was redundant to ask for a "slice of cheese pizza" since in New York, a "slice" already meant cheese pizza. 

I also began to hear the term "boo" and "boo boo" used in other ways.  Generally, I think "boo" can be used to express disapproval or to try to scare someone.  And on the west coast, I remember my new mommy friends use the term "boo boo" to talk about the gift their babies left in their diapers.  On the east coast though, "boo boo" was used affectionately.  A term used for a loved one, a significant other.  So, I give you this Halloween card with a touch of love...

Frankenstein and the Witch are holding hands.  And, just like I've heard "boo" in the form of a verb, Frankie and Witchie are all "boo'ed up".  Ha!  Love.

When Mama Elephant came out the Boo-tastic halloween themed stamp set, I knew I had to have it.  I don't even make or give out Halloween cards, but I felt that the sentiment "You're Boo-tastic" could be used year-round.  Yes, I'm determined to stretch this stamp set!

This card will be entered in to the 10 Minute Craft Dash hosted by Pretty Pink Posh.  I finished this card in 8 minutes and 15 seconds.  One disclaimer: I already had masks of Frankenstein and the Witch (since I've been playing with this set pretty much since I received it), as well as a circle stencil for the moon...hoping that I wasn't expected to make new masks and stencils if I had them already?!?  Just wanted to be honest.

Ah, I love these little characters.  They are definitely boo-tastic.  And, so are you.  Thanks for stopping by.

Stamps: Mama Elephant Boo-tastic, Midnight Letters
Inks: Copic markers, Memento (tuxedo black), Memento Luxe (love letter), Tim Holtz (wild honey)
