cQc#160: halloween

The colors in cQc#160 at ColourQ were a perfect fit with the paper collection I used for my Halloween cards. The black sparkle of the background paper and diamond-shaped tape worked really well for the touch of tailored elegance in these cards. I’m not sure why, but my Halloween cards always tend that way rather than cutesy or scary.

The constant whistling of the wind through the trees today makes it feel as if Halloween is already here. Hope of all you on the East Coast make it safely through this storm.

This is a wonderful Halloween card Nancy. I have that black background paper. Are you near the storm? If you are please stay safe. Love the spiderweb trim.

Nancy I just saw that you are from New Jersey ! How are you? I pray that you are doing well. I just talked to a friend from church , she came from there. Her father died( nothing to do with the storm) and she went back on Thursday before the storm came home Sat. Oh the story she has to tell. They are still waiting to burry her father.

Nancy I love your card - love Halloween and your color combo and those spider webs!
Now - I also noticed you are from NJ - I'm hoping you fared ok with the storm? I have to ask since you commented so sweetly on my blog - are you from Morristown? I grew up in Parsippany! Went to St. Peter's and Morris Catholic. Are you familiar with those schools? Really I'm not a crazy stalker but I saw Morristown on my feed and thought its like home :-)
