Moving / Witches Brew

I keep meaning to tell you all that I will be moving in 3 weeks.  We  feel it is in the best interest of my son to go home and get him back into the same school he was at.  I don't feel as though they are meeting his needs.  Since my mom passed away in June I have been feeling a little lost and lonely.  I have my friends and In Laws  in Iowa that I miss terribly.  I believe we will all be happier when we get back.  I miss a "true" winter with snow on the ground for the holidays....I miss the beautiful colored leaves in the fall.  I am also planning ahead so all my DT work is finished and I will schedule my posts ahead of time.  You might not even know I am gone.  :)


Speaking of fall.  We will get back just in time for Halloween.  I have wanted to make a Halloween card since I got my My Minds Eye: Mischievous 6x6 pack of paper.  I also got the Friendship Jar Filler set from PTI last year and never used this image.  So stinkin' cute...don't ya think?  Love it!


I used my Sakura gel pen to make the stars sparkle.  I hope you can see it...I took as close a picture I can get.  I used an array of Copic markers to color this image.  Y23, YR23, YR24, YR02, YR07, E37, E39, BG01, B000, W1, C3, 100, 0 



Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

I love Halloween cards and this one is so cute. Love the pop of blue color in it. I hope you have a quick and easy move. I'm guessing there are not as many days of heat and humidity in Iowa!

I sincerely wish you, your son and husband a wonderful new start back home. Feeling lonely and missing the people you love to pieces is awful. And on top of that; it's the best choice for the happiness of your son. And a happy child is priceless. ( And of course you being happy too...:)...!!!!)

Your card? A jaw dropper; absolutely fabulous!

How very pretty and so much fun too! Love what you did with your colors and the whole design!

I know you must be so excited to get back to the midwest. I am so jealous. I miss it too. The fall and winters here are just not the same. They barely even celebrate Halloween or decorate. Love this card Heather. Best of luck to you. I will be praying for safe travels and I know your son must be so excited.
