Heads Up for October

Oh boy, October is my busy (read stress-out) month. Too many birthdays, Halloween, everything piles up in October for me. But this year I'm really proud of myself. I'm ALL DONE and it's only Sept 22. Now what am I going to fret about next month. November, maybe? Thanksgiving, another birthday, Christmas !?!?! Oh well,  I'm sure I'll find something. In the meantime I thought I'd post the Halloween cards I made for my nieces and nephew. Kevin, 10; Zoe, 8; Tracy, 4.  These are always fun and I hear that they make the kids laugh.

Kevin's card is a "gate-fold", literally. Metal photo slide secured with little magnet keeps it closed and I hope it's sufficiently grungy, inside and out.
Zoe's card is a little more on the cute? side.

and Tracy's card is a little simpler, for a 4-year-old

I did most of the work on my Cricut, especially the new October 31 solutions cart. The windows are all covered with SU's Crystal Effects and some of the background paper is from Bearly Mine digital collection, the rest from my stash.
Now that these projects are done, maybe I can play with some of my new Mousie images I'm so looking forward to working with. I can only hope!
