Halloween ATCs

Halloween is the one holiday that I don't really do any crafting for. I love Halloween, I guess I just never found a reason to make crafts related to the holiday. Kristal over at Getting Cricky posted her Simply Sunday challenge last week to make something Halloween related. I wanted to enter and decided on a shaped ATC since they can be quick to do and I hadn't done much crafting lately. So I made one. Then I decided a whole series was in order. Though one gravestone alone is very spooky, it still needs more. For the cards I used Lettering Delights shaped files. They all measure to the correct dimensions of an ATC... 3.5"x2.5".

In case you're having trouble reading them, they each say
1. 1985 Mary Lass Missed the brake and hit the gas
2. I told you I was sick! 1810
3. C. Dracula 1236, 1458, 1527, 1703, 1823, 1995
4. Kerry M. Off 1846
5. Barry M. Deep-1996

And no, I didn't come up with these myself. I pulled them from the web here.
