Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize...


Well, the inevitable time has come. I have to stop using some of my favorite stamps in my showcase. (My personal goal is to use only current products, no matter how hard.) I was thinking how sad it is to retire some of my friends. But just as we say goodbye to someone, fun memories come to mind as well. As my friend Dawn was creating this template/color combo, she commented that this card would make a very good condolence card. After she said that, the first thing that popped into my head was "The Grim Grinning Ghosts" song from the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. Doesn't this card have the perfect colors for it??


I have to tell you though, I am so in the mood right now for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving....oh, the holiday splendor!! I am busy planning my holiday stamp camps and I am constantly changing my mind as to what cards I want to make. I think that I will end up with a little of everything!!

I love this card! It's so elegant and the color combo is perfect....you'd have to use a sentiment other than thanks, though, if you wanted to use it for sympathy....unless it's thanks for the memories (wink!)

Thanks for visiting my blog...from the mother of one large family to another.

Hi Barbara! I found your blog through the comment you left on mine and had a look around. Great cards, and I love your sense of humor. I imagine you need one with 8 kids! I'm one of 6 myself. This card is just gorgeous!
