Halloween Skellie

I love Halloween.  I had hauled out all of my favorite Halloween goodies with the full intention of creating a ton of deliciously spooky and creepy cards.  Due to a recent tragedy in my life this was not to be.  I know as a stamper however that creating is therapy for the soul...so I returned to my stamp studio this week.  As I was getting things together to put the Halloween/Fall season away I put together some pieces that had other intentions at the time...to create a vintage, quirky "skellie" card.  It was made for my "stamping sister" Vi who is the queen of Halloween cards :)
