Yes, I Can Drive a Stick!

In the mid 1970’s, before the “Disney Channel”, there was The Wonderful World of Disney on Sunday night! We would have Swanson’s TV dinners on TV trays while we watched (salisbury steak and mashed potatoes with the little brownie was a favorite!). We weren’t allowed to eat in front of the TV any other time, so this was a big treat. For dessert…Mom cooked chocolate Jello pudding on the stove and put it in little red Tupperware cups with the plastic lids to chill in the fridge. The “skin” on top was my favorite part! Halloween was the beginning of Disney movie holiday season, so there was lots of excitement when the commercials would play during Saturday morning cartoons! I can still recite every word from this mini movie feature…I think we had the album of Disney Halloween sounds too. Dad would play it on the stereo on Halloween while he was handing out candy!

My kids weren’t as interested in cartoons when they were growing up. By then Pixar had taken off and cartoons were “boring”.  My kids grew up with the Disney Channel and daily replays of Halloween Town and Hocus Pocus. Sigh, cartoons were the good ‘ol days.

My last Halloween card for 2016, and it’s a shaker card! This witch is not as kid friendly as Witch Hazel, but I like her sense of humor!

JFFRS Flying Witch and Tiny Black Kat stamps. Sentiment created in PSE and printed on a full moon image I took with my DSLR camera. Cricut Happy Hauntings frame. Club Scrap cardstock.

I even made a pair of Shrinky Dinks plastic earrings to match my card!

JFFRS Flying Witch and Bats stamps on frosted Shrinky Dink plastic.

Hope you have a FA-BOO-LOUS Halloween! Dang, I wish I had some homemade chili and cornbread about now…
