Halloween Tricks

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  I have been seeing so many cute Halloween cards lately.  I have bunches of vintage images saved and was dying to use them.  I get most of my images from Hub Pages.  Pretty much if you search for vintage images you can find them for free.  I also have a couple links on my side bar with vintage images. 
So this is the one I have to share today.
I took these photos in my sons room this morning.  It think this is better light.  A little warmer and not so much grey.  The walls are the same color in the whole house.  Russian White.  Which is an almost cream color.  So I guess it just makes a difference in the amount of sun coming in the room.  In his room in the morning is full sun.  I angled the blinds so I didn't get direct light but plenty of light.  What do you think?  Better?
I thought this little girl looked so cute with this Basic Grey paper that looks like old wall paper.  I am totally addicted to vintage images.  But!  I like my stamps too.  I am completely torn.  What do you like seeing here the most?  Please be honest.
I dug through and pulled out all my Halloween embellishments.  I went through all my Basic Grey pads of paper and pulled out any sheets that I thought could possibly work and pre printed my images at 3.75 inches tall which seems to be the best size that I like to work with.  I pull them up in Microsoft Word.  I put as many images on that page as would possibly fit and printed at one time.  Then cut them up.  I lay the images out on papers that I think goes with the image I want to work with.  Then I just create away.  Wait until I show you the other one I made.  :)  I will share it tomorrow.

Wow! this is just so gorgeous!! I love it! thanks for the link too ... I adore halloween cards but no one send them here and I can't make them in my Thursday club 'cos it is Church run and they don't approve ... so you keep them coming girlie ... As for which I prefer ... I love the images but when I see your pretty colouring .. I am smitten with them too ... please keep showing both ... (hugs)

Fun card, I love the colors and how you added the black lace. I love both style of cards you do, I am a total stamp addict and love seeing stamped cards, but I also love the vintage images and it gives me inspiration of how to use images and die cuts in a different way, so I would love to see both! Oh, and happy be-lated anniversary! My hubs and I just celebrated our 11th this month too:) Hugs..
