Halloween card

Our regular mailman has been on medical leave for the last 5 weeks or so.  He should be coming back to work in a week or two.  He is such a nice gentleman and I really miss him.  If I have packages that won't easily fit in the mail box, he drives in the driveway and toots the horn.  He always has a smile on his face no matter what the weather.

I told him I would have to make him some get well cards while he was off since he is so great at bringing my stamping stuff packages to me.

Here is the Halloween card I made.  I wrote a get well note inside for him.

This was difficult to get a non-shiny picture.  The embossed panel was copper metallic paper and the pumpkin border has glitter all over it.  The Ott light made everything VERY shiny.  I actually took four pics to get one that looked like the card.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts (where else?), Hooked on Crafts and Wal Mart.

My friend Jean H. sent me this fantastic pumpkin shaped doily! It is just the perfect size for the inside of this card.  Super Edwin is ready to save the world or at least help Tilda stay out of trees while she's learning to steer her broom.  Rufus is not to be left out of the Halloween festivities.  He's ready to scare everyone behind his mask.

I stamped off extra Edwin "heads" and cut out the masks for Tilda and Rufus.  The eyes all have Crystal Effects to make them shiny.
I hope my mailman enjoys his card! I had fun making it for him!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a quick note that you were here.
