FrankenKitty

Here is my submission for today's SCS Inspiration Challenge 200. When I saw THIS WALLET, I immediately thought of this designer paper I had, and decided to make a Halloween card. The brad says "Boo!"

Images, ink, and Nestabilities are from Happy Halloween by Chicken Girl Design Stamps, available at i {heart} papers.

Today we are off to a marching band competition about 2 1/2 hours away. Our daughter is a junior and plays the baby bass drum! It is going to be a perfect day for it - a great crisp, fall day! MUCH better than yesterday's 50 mph winds we had for two days!

And on a side note - however it is definitely not a side thought - some of you know that my dad has been very ill for several weeks and was in the hospital. He is back at the nursing home now, but on thrice weekly dialysis treatments that are hard. I just wanted to mention that, because I have taken a leave of absence from some of the teams I am on, and wanted to let you know why you wouldn't be seeing some of those designs from me in October. To those that have sent notes to me, thanks for your concern and prayers! :)

I hadn't known about your dad - sorry to hear that, Judy. I'll be thinking of him and the family over the next while. Hope the weather stayed good for you yesterday!
