Happy Halloween


It's Halloween!  And, it's Friday!  Wooohoo!  One of my favorite "holidays" and my favorite day combined...  Great!

I'm determined to have a good day today...  I have a backache that has been trying to ruin that determination during the whole week, but even though I will probably have to continue being careful with my movements, I really want to enjoy this day.

We usually dress up at work and have a get together in the afternoon.  Best costumes are chosen and we really have fun.  So, wish me luck!

Then I was thinking that even though we are really struggling in our country with some economy and politics issue, and the unemployment of lots of people have affected us all, I am lucky to have a good job.  I know nobody is "secure" in any job, as people say, but still I have to thank God because at least I have a job, and work around wonderful people who care for providing a little afternoon to share Halloween.  :)



So, let's give thanks.  Let's not wait until Thanksgiving Day to give thanks.

For this card I stamped the big jar with brown ink, and then applied "red" with sponge for a background.  Then stamped this great sentiment stamp about Thanksgiving.  Tied some baker's twine around neck/cap and positioned with dimensional adhesives on top of distressed patterned paper.



I know... it's Halloween and I am sharing a Thanksgiving card.  This is Scrapper Myra LOL!  I promise to share in future posts more of Halloween projects I have pending to share and photos of today's craziness.

For now, leave a comment for the chance to win with Unity Stamp Co, because I am linking this to Friday Friends with Flair.

Have a great weekend and don't forget to give thanks.
