Halloween Card for my Niece



I started this card before my daughter's accident and came close to throwing it away but I thought maybe it might cheer up my niece who has been struggling with Cindy's death. I know that it doesn't take the pain away, but even if it makes her smile for a second then it's worth it.

My husband is gone for the next 4 days on business, so I thought maybe I'd try and get some cards done. I have a ton of thank you cards that need to be made.

As always, hug your children and let them know everyday how much you love them. God Bless!
