Halloween in May

I am pooped! :) My SIL had surgery today... she is doing well... surgery went great. I went to her house to watch her 3 kids at 3pm and I left at 9pm. I had Carver with me and then one of my nieces had a friend over. They were all great... with the exception of mine! :) He was good most of the time but what is it about getting in front of other people and then your kid doesn't think that he has to mind!?!?

Anyway... just thought I would post some cards, etc. tonight!

Here is a card and tag that I made for submissions recently. I only made one Halloween card and 2 Halloween tags. One of the tags got picked up so these are the 'rejects'! I did have an older Halloween card accepted and found out today that it looks like it never made it to its destination. Ugh!! Lesson learned... no matter how the kid is acting... stay long enough to get the tracking info. !! Of all the things to lose... couldn't the post office lose a bill or something? ha... Very upsetting... very upsetting!!

We were gone from home most of the day. Michael was gone all day so he is still working on the 2nd coat on our new bookshelf. Here is a pic....

Michael has done a great job!! I love them!!

Hopefully it will be finished up tonight and then we will just let it set for a few days before I load it up with 'stuff'! :)

Hope you all have a fab weekend!

Peace and Love!
