It Doesn't Have to be A Halloween Card

I love autumn and all of the colors, holidays, and decorations. I love Halloween stamps, but I don't usually send Halloween cards. But that's OK! They don't have to be Halloween cards. Here are some cards from the past and present that I've made for various occasions. So, if you're one of those people who don't buy Halloween stamps because you don't make Halloween cards, you might just change your mind. :)

Hang in there! It will all be over soon!
