I made some cards using the new October 31st cartridge for Scrappy-Go-Lucky. This cartridge is not about cuddly little ghosts, it has a dark side that would be adored by teenagers. It's full of jagged edges, and scary images.
I used one of the borders for the jagged cut on the left, then cut the lantern at 6", and backed bits of it in orange cardstock. The sentiment is one of Studio G's halloweeen stamps from last year

At last, I have a Dunkin experience to share with you, and yes, hand on heart this is exactly what happened. I was sitting in the sunshine when an elderly African-American woman, all dressed up, and carrying a walmart carrier bag, sat down at the next table. 'Hello honey' she said with a beaming smile. We started chatting, she was with her son and granddaughter.
'It's my husbands anniversary today' she announced
'oh, happy anniversary' I cried
'No, it's the anniversary of his passing' she said 'we always go to church then come here on his anniversary and birthday'
She unfurled the walmart bag to show me an ornate urn
'he normally lives in my china cabinet' she said chattily
Well, what could I say? How did I keep a straight face? What did I do?
I whipped out my notebook that I keep handy for when inspiration strikes me, and wrote a note to my kids, I will put it with my will!
Dear James, Edward and Alexandra
When I am no longer here, please don't carry me around in a walmart bag. Don't feel you have to buy me a coffee on my birthday, you never felt compelled to do that when I was alive, so don't feel you have to start now. I know that none of you own a china cabinet, please don't go out and buy one just for me
