DAY 8- 31 Days of Halloween, Countdown to halloween, Real witches of Halloween

Welcome to Day 8 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN, as well as day 8 of the COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN, and Day 8 of THE REAL WITCHES OF HALLOWEEN.

ok, so I am cold and tired this morning and I was cold and tired last night, and therefore I feel like I cheated as I did a not very involved piece. (I have  a few like this, for those days where I am just not up to snuff)

This is a translucent plastic snack platter that I got at the dollar store. When I saw it, I immediately knew I could use my large corner web in it's center with STAZ-ON ink. WHAT I did NOT count on, was the wood block hitting the curved edge all the way around when I pressed down with the stamp. so it make the stamp shift most of the time. Anyway, I plan on using this for cupcakes :)
 The Large corner web stamp is from "Web Wishes" set by STAMPIN' UP, The "trick or treat" and "Halloween" stamps are from the $1 bin at MICHAEL'S over the last couple of years
 Not bad for $1!
