Hi, There, Stampers! With all that's going on in my life (nothing terrible - just time-consuming) I don't often have the time to sit down and design my own cards. In fact, after I designed the card that you saw in my last article, I wasn't sure that I was going to be able to send out Halloween Cards this year at all!

Aloha, all! Oops! This was supposed to go live two weeks ago! But since I’m busy getting ready to move from Hawai'i to Florida (more on that soon), I thought I’d go ahead and let it post a few days after Halloween!
