A-Haunting We Will Go

Happy Saturday!  I had a rough week at work this past week so I was glad it was short because of the holiday on Monday, and I am so glad that the weekend is now here!!  It got off to a great start with a long run with a couple of great friends on an absolutely beautiful morning.  To make my morning even better, one of my friends showed up to the run with the new Create a Critter 2 cartridge for me!!  She managed to find 2 at a J's near her and snagged one for each of us.  So of course I had to play with my new toy today!!  :)  Have you seen the images on this cartridge??  So many fun images to choose from - I know I'll be using this cartridge a lot!

I decided to make a Halloween card first.  I saw this cute vampire bee image and thought he was just adorable.  He also fits perfectly for the challenge this week over at Celebrate the Occasion.  The challenge is Hey Honey and your project must include a bee on it, in honor of Honey Month (I never knew there was such a thing!!).

I'm also going to send this card to Madison for her September I Feel the Love project.  Madison is collecting Halloween cards during the month of September so that they can be delivered during the month of October to kids that live at Casa Pacifica.  Be sure to check out Madison's blog HERE for more information about her wonderful project.
