A Happy Halloween

Hi there! How was your weekend?

We celebrated my adorable nephew Jake's first birthday.. goodness he is scrumptious. I will see if my SIL posted some pics.

And since I'm going in fifteen different directions right now, I'll share a quick card and be on my way.

The Halloween image came in a digital print-out from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. I cut it out and matted it with some Kraft cardstock. The background is stamped with the Swirly Bat in Versamark ink. I spritzed a doily with my Wild Honey Distress Reinker and Perfect Pearls mix. Everything also got a healthy dose of Distress Ink.

Big fan of the vintage Halloween! Speaking of vintage... this weekend (I am super excited) my Momma and I are going to the Country Living Fair in Columbus, OH. I love Country Living Magazine and have been wanting to go to the Fair for a few years now. I have been having so much fun incorporating vintage items into my crafting, so I can't wait to see what goodies I can find!

Have a great day!
