Happy Birthday Cards

Happy Halloween!  In honor of this fabulous holiday I have 2 birthday cards to share.  For photos of some of the amazing Halloween decorations up at my motel and my mother's haunted house click here.

So I make greeting cards at 5:30 in the morning most days of the week and in my not-so-awake state I tend to grativate towards something, follow its path and see where it takes me.  This morning I saw Lynn's card and thought a) I should use more patterned paper and b) that looks like a fun sketch... so low and behold, birthday card #5 (of 30).

Then I decided to use the same Basic Grey Paper Cottage elements and make another card, this time with the Seize The Sketch challenge.  Card #6 done.  Right, now back to the Halloween fun... we're expecting around 1500-2000 trick or treaters this evening...wish us luck!
