Day 29 of 31 Days: Skellie ATC

Hello! Today is a very special day for me... It's my Anniversary! 8 years ago today I married my wonderful husband, in the most magical celebration you could imagine. I am a very lucky lady.

For my project, I made an ATC using a Dilly Beans image called Skull, Pumpkin and Candy #471. I colored the image with watercolors.

My sentiment is from Smeared Ink. It's just a cute, simple ATC. It's all about the watercolors here.

I am hoping to have my last couple of posts written by tomorrow morning......I'm in NY, and Hurricane Sandy is looming. Hopefully we will not lose power. For those of you also on the East Coast, stay safe!!! Now off you go! Off to hop to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

Fang-tastic ATC. I love the bright colors. Stay safe, I know what's it like dealing with hurricanes every year in Florida. Thank you for sharing your artwork.
Be safe yourself.

Lovely pic of you and your husband, isn't that one of your wedding photos?

BTW another very cute card. Love the way the pumpkin matches the candy corn.
