September Inspiration Projects - Halloween without Halloween Stamps!

This month’s inspiration theme is Halloween.  The  twist is that I didn’t use any of the new Halloween stamps that just came out in the Holiday Catalog.  In fact, I made these Halloween cards without using Halloween stamps at all – well I did for the sentiment only.  I challenged myself to use non-seasonal stamps that I had to make Halloween cards, and I must say, I totally enjoyed the challenge!
