  1. are your cards available at horse spirit arts gallery?

  2. Oh now I am in heebie jeebies land again! Great card, creepy skull!

    • Sorry…Mexican (and I think it has spread to more Latin American countries) Day of the Dead – they honor their dead today, help them on their spiritual journey. Not a scary thing! 😉

      • Yes, I am just not keen on skulls! There is a trend over here for skull-shaped cakes decorated with this kind of Day of the Dead artwork. I know I wouldn’t be able to cut into a skull cake, no matter how delicious!

      • I cannot say I have seen a Day of the Dead CAKE! As much as I like cake, I’m not sure I could cut up a skull, either.

  3. Oh, I’m wondering if I will ever get used to this type of decorations… Living in California, we have a lot of them everywhere – cakes, cookies, toys, wine bottles, etc…
    Your card looks stylish!
