This month has been filled with birth announcements and birthdays ... two wonderful reasons to celebrate! Another celebration is the upcoming Halloween holiday. I just love the colors and the spooky chilly feel of Halloween. I loved getting dressed up (usually in my older brother's band uniform) and trick-or-treating with my Dad. It was always cold and blustery - at least that's the way I remember it - and we'd walk hand-in-hand from house to house. It felt both scary and exhilarating to be out after dark. He'd stand at the curb with his flashlight while I ran up to the door. I knew he'd always be there ... waiting. Knowing that I could count on that security was what made the night all the better.
Here's a card created with a sweet crocheted owl and some seasonal colors. Combining scraps, some hand-dyed seam binding, a couple decorative pins, and other touches made this "spook-tacular" layout. Sorry - I just had to do that.
I hate to be so short today but it's late. Thanks for stopping by ... I'll be back soon with a couple Christmas creations!
