Penny Black Halloween

Wahoo! I'm back. It's been far too long since my fingers played with my craft supplies. Life has been beyond stressful as I've tried to take care of my mom's estate and still try find to start the grieving process. I was glad to spend Saturday escaping from reality and inking up paper. It might take awhile to get my groove back, but it's a start. I'm WAY behind on the 365 Card Challenges, but will try to work a few in with each of my creations. I might have to wait for 2010 to start fresh with their challenges. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).
