Truthfully, I made these card in the beginning of September.
I have been waiting until the calendar page turned to October to send them out. Last year a friend mentioned to me, "I didn't know people sent cards out for Halloween". Oh, little did they know that I do not necessarily need a holiday to send cards out. I think that is the best part of making cards, being able to send a little note to someone out of the blue.
Back to these Halloween cards. I just love this Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland paper. I especially love the tags and the playing cards. Tracking this paper down however was a little bit of an adventure. I try to support local scrapbook stores as often as I can. I often find myself calling stores in search of a particular line or brand of paper. In this case, Halloween in Wonderland was a tricky to track down. I could find none in Tacoma, but truthfully there is only one scrapbook store in Tacoma (Scrap That! which I love).
I was able to find a few pieces at Papermuse in Sumner, but they were almost sold out (and that was back in the beginning of August). I was able to track down the remaining papers in the line and the tag sheet at The Scrapbook Nook in Kent.
One free Sunday afternoon, a little bit of ribbon, some basic cardstock and some Stickles later, viola!
