#2 of Halloween Card Series

 BOO !
Hi, crafters

Personal Note:
Tom's surgery was postponed until the end of the month.
Thank you all for your prayers and comments yesterday.
Please continue to pray for him for his new surgery date.
Thank you so much!

I have a bunch of Halloween cards to share with you this month. :) 
Hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them.

Card #2

This is one of my favorites in this series.
Why? It's the green background, I think. Plus the very large "Happy Halloween" stamp. I was going to save it for a later date in October to publish it, but he was too cute not to go ahead and post earlier rather than later. LOL

All of the cards in this series used the
Echo Park, Halloween Magic 6x6 paper pad. 

There is a total of 18 cards - and I still had lots 
of design paper left over from this pad! WOW!

All cards used solid cardstock from stash
Some cards have ribbon from various companies

Cards with sentiments are from various companies such as:
Cardz TV Stamps
Close To My Heart
Simon Says Stamp

I tried to keep everything fairly simple 
and flat for mailing with the exception 
of ribbon and bows now and then. 

I really wanted to add some gems, sequins, and enamel dots, 
but decided to stay with the flat clean & simple approach for these. 
But believe me, the struggle was real to not add some bling!

Happy Halloween!
:) Janis
