Best Witches...

 The first of my Halloween cards... about time!  The day doth approach fast -
and on it's heels,  I need Thanksgiving and Christmas!  
Dang woman!  You gotta move faster... FASTER!

I thought this would be something really simple & fast since I am so under the gun for projects right now.  But I kept trying to figure out how to decorate it.  Heavy sigh.  Now I have one, it will be easy to make more.  This is a Diamond Pop-up card - I have to thank my friend Betty for showing me how to do this!
