Yay for me!  My Whipper Snapper stamps finally arrived and they are even cuter in real life – I’m sooooo glad Anna invited me to take a spin on the design team again this year. 

I know I’m a little late to the party but here’s my first design offering of one of Anna’s newest cling mount sets “Happy Haunting“:

If you’re thinking this is not very Halloween-like, you are absolutely correct.   With a little imagination, you can sometimes turn a holiday stamp into an “every day” stamp.  When I saw this chicken wrapped up like a mummy, I thought of a get well card and first aid kit almost immediately.  I didn’t think of using the word “Boo” for a “boo-boo” until I was altering the bandaid tin and thinking about what to use for wording…works for me!

The sentiment on the card reads “I do all my own stunts” and it comes from another of Anna’s sets – “His Favorite Things“.  I thought it was quite appropriate for a chicken in a full body cast!

The contents of the bandaid box are simply a little kit I bought at a dollar store.  The contents look MUCH cuter in my embellished tin than they did in the yucky store packaging. 

In addition to Anna’s stamps I used some awesome Echo Park paper (again, I’m using the more solid reverse sides of all these papers but the fronts are cute too!) and I couldn’t resist using a banner in true Anna Wight style on my card.  I tell ya, I’m not worthy!

Here’s a peek at the contents of the first aid kit:

…and here’s one of just the card:
