The Holidays Are Coming, But First....

One last Halloween hurrah!

Hi there!  How is it November already?!?!  I am SO not ready for the holidays this year!  I mean, sure my shopping is done (thank you, Toys R Us layaway!) but my crafting is a bit behind.  I still have a Halloween card to share, for goodness sake's!  I didn't do nearly as much Halloween crafting as I had hoped but I did manage to get a card done for my little man.  He looks forward to them so even though it meant staying up until 3am Halloween eve, it was worth it!

I colored Make It Crafty's Mini Headless Horseman with my Copics and fussy cut him.  His cape was a challenge but I was pretty pleased with the end result. I stamped the small book cover from Tim Holtz and mounted him on that.  Dies include Tim Holtz's Branch Tree, Twig border, mini moon, and Picture Wheel (Sizzix) as well as Frightful Fence and Large Lacy Border (La-La-Land Crafts).  The "spooky" banner is a sticker from my stash.

We had an awesome Halloween!  We went to a party on Saturday and then trick-or-treating with his friends on Monday!  I was Princess Leia and he was a Storm Trooper!  I WILL continue to buy matching costumes until he tells me it's not cool.  (And maybe even still then...)

My Halloween decorations are still up and I think they will stay that way until I feel the urge to get the Christmas ones from the basement.  (I don't have much for Thanksgiving anyway.)  Why not enjoy the magic of two of our favorite holidays a little longer, right?  

Thanks for stopping by!
