Hey everyone!  I'm back!!!  Thank you for hanging in there while I took a much needed break.  School has started this week and two of my three children are now in school.  It's pretty quiet here during the day and the baby really seems to miss her brother and sister.

Yesterday she kept going into both of their bedrooms and she was calling their names, it was so cute.  I decided to make another Halloween card and I wanted to use a SU stamp set that I haven't inked yet.

I simply stamped the skeleton and then I stamped and cut out the pumpkin and placed it in the skeleton's hand.  My black card stock was punched using my bat lace border punch and the little bats in the upper right hand corner were also punched using an EK Success bat punch. 

My decorative paper is from the dollar spot at my local Target store, don't you just love their dp?  I'm going to check next time I go and look to see if they have any Christmas dp.

Well, that's about it for today, I'll be back again on Monday with my regualr scheduled postings.  Just in case anyone might be interested I am currently hosting a CAS (clean & simple) Christmas card swap and everyone is welcome to join us.  You will find more details about my swap here.

Also, there is a new gallery comment contest up and running on Splitcoast stampers.  You can find more information regarding that game here.  Come join us, it's a great way to leave some comments and make someone's day!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
