Happy Halloween!

 
Just a quick note and card to wish all of you a very happy and safe Halloween!  I know you have doors to answer, or kids to take out haunting!  In my neighborhood weather is hardly ever a factor - adults will be sitting on their porches or close to pit fires in their driveways so the kids don't have to walk so far!  I've even seen parents driving their kids from one door to the next!    The things we do for our kids!  :)  I love seeing the kids in their costumes - especially when the whole family gets into it.  I remember one year my neighbor was Cruella de Ville, and her boys were both dalmations!  I don't have any special tricks planned this year.  Be good and have fun!

Happy Halloween to you to Jeanne!

You and your fabulous coloring! I have examined this one up close and it is perfect!!! I love that you colored the fringe a different color, such a little touch that jumped right out at me. The beautiful bow and pretty patterned paper are gorgeous and I love how you have wrapped the twine and button over the little doily edge. Such a great Halloween card Jeanne!

Happy Halloween to you, too! This is such a great card--super coloring, and such a fun mix of embellishments. This is the first year I won't be taking my girls trick or treating--they want to go with their friends.
