Halloween rescheduled!

Being without power for a few days gave me plenty of opportunity to stamp and color in daylight.

I was luckier than most, here in New Jersey, I lost part of my roof and inside ceilings are a mess, as a result of the water coming in.  So many people have lost so much in the NJ/NYC areas...Devastating!  and quite a shock...
 We have never seen such a weather phenomenon.
 Our beaches and boardwalks are destroyed.  So many of us have such fond memories.  Everyone from every part of New Jersey went "down the shore"  and experienced the decadence of adolescents.
  But our reputation of being "high spirited" will get us through and we will rebuild!
  In fact, Halloween was a bust, but our Governor simply decided to "make it work" by changing it until November 3rd.
 So, I figured I can still get some cards out in the mail and be on time for OUR Halloween.

  This one is for one of my favorite clients.  Her granddaughter is just crazy about Minnie Mouse.  She is the most adorable and precocious three year old.    Every time she come to my salon, she is wearing some cute Disney outfit or accessory and is so eager and excited to tell me about it.
 SO this is for Alexis:
 I found this image on Disneycoloring pages...lots of cute images there.  I punched a hole in the front of a square card using my nestabilities and cuttlebug.  The pumpkins on the bottom and blingy bats and boo were from a package I found in TJ Max, along with some Martha stewart punches that I used to make the spider web.  Glued on the large rhinestones.  Here is the inside:
I would like to enter the following challenges:



  1. A Disney Halloween card, how fabulous!!! She will love this card. :) Kudos to Gov. Christie for changing the date and making it work for all the kids who missed Halloween, way to go.

  10. Your post is certainly a beacon of inspiration and determination. I'm so inspired by your writing and your positive attitude. I can't imagine what you all have gone through and still how fun that in all of that, the kiddos got to celebrate Halloween after all. I love what you've created despite all you've been through and my thought and prayers go out to all of you.
