Feliz Dia de las Brujas


In my culture we do not celebrate Halloween.  There's no such thing as going house to house to collect sweet treats. But what we do have is El Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead).  It's a day were we celebrate the lives of our loved one's who have passed on.

So, on October 31st, we celebrate with our loved one's, friends, and neighborhoods as we come together, pray, and simply eat.  Now, that's what I love… eating!  LoL… It's like a pot luck in honor of those that enriched our lives and live in our hearts forever.

Card Sketches

The sentiment is literally translated to read Day of the Witches… LoL.  I don't know why Halloween was named that, but that's what I grew up calling it… kind of funny I think.  Blog-Signature

Ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls… it's all downhill from here… the rest of the cards you will see were made two weeks ahead of time.  Why?  Because I had to ship 99.5% of my supplies home to the homeland sort of speak… LOL.  Yes, I'm having bad withdraw, but I left out a couple Paper Pumpkin kits and I've been working on them one card at a time.  Talk about milking the cow… LOL.  When those are complete I have bought some My Digital Studio dgital stamps, paper, and embellishment and I'll be showing you my card designs.  So, stay tuned because I'm getting really excited about it now.  So, I will not suffer from serious withdraw… I will design my heart away while I wait to be reunited with my paper… =)  Stay tuned on my progress… Yippee Skippy!
