Love Me Some Halloween!

Good morning! Did you have a great weekend?
I had another busy one filled with "gallivanting" as my family likes to call it! ;) At the rate I am going, I will probably be two sizes bigger! 

A couple of weeks ago I bought this adorable stamp/die set from Hero Arts at Simon Says Stamp.  I created the background panel for both cards using a combination of stamping and Zig Clean Color Markers.  I added a bit of Black Soot Distress ink to the edges too.
The boots were cut out using the coordinating die and each image was colored with colored pencils.  I heat embossed the sentiment on black paper in orange.  For a finishing touch, I adhered a few sequins.
Brian and I had a family meeting at Misericordia yesterday, so I wanted to bring a few things to Cort, like her Halloween costume, Halloween T-shirts, pumpkin shoes, and matching headbands. 
I had a moment packing her stuff yesterday of sadness.  
This will be the first Halloween she doesn't spend with me.
I've been lucky to share 20 of them with her.

I know it is part of the growing process.....but it certainly wreaks havoc on this mama's heart.

Brian keeps me I don't notice her absence as much...hence the gallivanting!
