Sending a Smile...

Happy Thursday! The realization just hit that I have to finish up some Halloween stuff...and fast! My daughter has a party tomorrow, which means little treats have to get made today. I still am at a lost as to what to do, but I'll figure out. In the meantime, I'm making a few more last minute cards and using a some stamps I haven't inked up yet:



Can you believe I overlooked this adorable jack-o-lantern? He's from the 2009 Halloween Tags set and I've totally neglected him! I stamped three of these little guys and added a leaf from the Everyday Button Bits set. I actually think it's a bird feather, but it works! I love to mix and match my stamps - the sentiment is from that set, too. I thought it was perfect for these pumpkins and their little smiling faces! Now I have to get if off in the mail today so it has a chance to arrive in time.

One little random story before I sign off today. Does anyone remember this cartoon from the 80s? Well, I do, vaguely, but my daughter has recently discovered it and she loves (no, LOVES) it! I can't believe how everything comes back around. As an adult, I think it's a little weird and confusing. I'm trying to explain it, but I don't quite "get" what they are either (cats, people, aliens???). All I know is I now have this running through my head daily: "Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, Thundercats....hhhhoooooo!"
