Hello- I can't believe how far behind I am on Halloween stuff this year. I finally got the house
decorated yesterday. Teacher gifts are completed. Now I am finishing up care packages to send to my daughters who are away at school. Finished making cookies and pumpkin bread last night. The last little surprise is a Nordstrom giftcard so they can by a lipgloss. I used 3 cricut cartridges to make this card. The actual giftcard holder is from Wild Card-which is probably the cartridge I use the most for card shapes and embelishments. The ghost is from Paperdoll Dressup and the lipstick is from Forever Young
