Halloween Card and Calendar Journal

I cannot get blogger to work properly.  I will have to try later to figure out how to resize my photos.  My apologies for my lack of technical knowledge.

I only have made a couple of Halloween cards and one I mailed failing to take a photo.  Such is life.

It is a very simple card using scrapbook paper, a tree die cut, a 3-D Nevermore sticker and a typewriter to type the greeting.

My October calendar journal did not turn out the way it looked in my mind, but I was so busy all month, I look at it as ‘it is what it is’.

However, every 30 days or so, I get to begin again.  I suppose the important thing is just documenting something about each day.  But I still want it to look fun by the end of the month.  We will see how November goes.

I have not drawn the woman.  She came on the paper.  I did paint her hair and rose with Neocolors and a white gel pen though.
Enjoy your month of November 2017!

You started October with an 8 mile walk! My hat is off to you, Annie. :)
Adore your Halloween card! I've mailed stuff without taking photos before and been frustrated. It usually happens when I'm determined to get something in the mail before the mailman arrives.

Hope your black eye has healed! Love seeing what you've been reading--looks like we have a similar interest in mysteries.

I like the way you have a big brown word most days which highlights the event. You seem to be having an exciting life. I think October looks great, finishes with a Pumpkin. November looked as if it was going to be glamorous then I read the first two entries, haha!
The Halloween card maybe simple to you but it looks extremely complicated to me.

One spooky tree and a crow. Great card. I like the way you document each month, works of art.

Love your Halloween card. And am impressed with the 8 mile walk! Wow! But Scrapple? Is that something you eat? I vaguely remember my mom making Scrapple. Anyway, love the start of the Noveber calendar.
