Halloween Cards!

Card Swap with Junie Moon!

Well I am super busy today and just taking a breather, so pardon me, but I'm going to use a photo from Junie Moon's blog of the card she sent me that arrived yesterday! The moon! How appropriate, don't you think? We agreed to exchange Halloween cards a while back. It was so nice to get such a gorgeous card from my sweet sweet blog friend. :-) You can also go to her blog to see the one I sent to her. I think she is a little too hard on herself for the card she sent. I love it and more than that I love that it came from her, such a special woman! It also feels nice to be referred to in an entire entry on her blog. blush...

Here's how she did it (in her words):

I printed the card front and back on my computer and enhanced with just a touch of glitter and glue from Martha Stewart. The back is all black and has a quote written in white from John Kendrick Bangs:

Bring forth the raisins and the nuts—
Tonight All-Hallows' Spectre struts
Along the moonlit way.
It's still amazing, I don't get how she got the white moon on the black paper, or did she print the black background on white paper? And if so, why doesn't it smear? It's an enigma! :-)

I don't consider myself any kind of expert in paper crafts, but I hope to improve my skills in that area. For now I'm off to sew up some witches hat table decorations from a pattern by Miss June herself!

I am so tickled that you love the card I made for you--I'm a novice paper crafter and so worried about it but it all worked out, didn't it?

Oh, I am really thrilled that you're working on the party hat project--I can hardly wait to see what you make with it. This makes me so happy!
