halloweenie cards

many from $ Michael's stamps..... PTI, SU.....wonderful papers....some gauze, sizzix dies......nestabilities..... crumpled tissue paper....and great mini paper packs i bought last year on sale....

the local store i have sold cards to in the past called yesterday....they missed me !  i will call for appt to come and show my new wares next week.  also told them i now maybe i can unload some of that...  seems i have to "create" and it is nice to sell stuff to be able to replenish supplies and inspiration....
