Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #59

Happy Wednesday and Happy Halloween!  Halloween is one of my least favourite holidays...only because my kids aren't big candy eaters and well, I LOVE chocolate and all those little chocolate bars scream my name during the day when the boys aren't home!!!  It's terrible!  Hopefully they'll get a bag full of lollipops and Fuzzy Peaches so that I am not at all interested!  

Today being Wednesday means that it's also time for a brand new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!  Today's sketch is brought to us by the fabulous Cindy Hall!  Cindy makes the most beautiful cards and she is so inspiring!

I need a few thank you cards.  I may have celebrated a birthday a few weeks ago and need to thank some very special people for some very special birthday gifts!  My mom bought me the Postage Stamp punch and I've been itching to use it!

Cardstock: Basic Black,Whisper White
DSP:  Polka Dot Parade
Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Boho Blossoms Punch, Button, Daffodil Delight Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Bitty Banner Framelits, Dimensionals

A little sneak peak of my fire breathing dragon!  He had his Halloween parade at school today (he doesn't go to school tomorrow) and I couldn't resist posting this picture of my cutie!
Stay tuned for Caleb's costume!!!!

Have a great day!
