It was a dark and stormy Sunday

yes, I'm back. I've really been here, wanting to post but too many other things going on. And today, since it is indeed a dark and stormy day, and having gotten a few things off my list for the weekend, I decided to make some cards and post here - YAY!
In the last few weeks there's been work and a nice weeklong vacation to the beach house. And since then, when I've had a few minutes, I was scrapping our vacation. I've been using divided page protectors for a few years now (WeRMemory Keepers and Project Life) - and it really makes it easy and fun. I still have a boat load of scrapbooking to do but I'd say the last two years I've gotten in books right away so not too bad. (we shan't discuss the other 25 plus years of photos still in boxes - less several books on my kids... its a never ending project but I do love it so!)
Ok - so on to the cards - which came together in no time at all - thanks to stamps from my two favorite-ist stamp companies: Purple Onion Designs and Papertrey Ink! The large background like stamp is  one of the Noteblock stamps from Purple Onion Designs. And that skeleton, spider web and the cute little spider are from the Mr. Bones set from Papertrey. (Mr. Bones was cut out using the coordinating die set). I added a little hand drawn little line from the web to the spider. I had cut out 4 of the little Mr. Bones, stamped them, and just sat back and smiled - he is just so darned cute!
I'll be posting a lot of Halloween cards in the next few weeks - can't start too early for all the fun fall holidays right? Hope you're enjoying the day - have a good one!

Really fun cards, Tracy. The block sentiment stamp is awesome and I like how Mr. Bones looks like he's just come from the back of the panel. So cute!

Super cute! I love how you tucked the skeleton's one leg behind the sentiment block like that!
