Last week it was bats. This week, ghosts. But not just any ghosts. No. These? They are adorable ghosts. I mean, seriously. Oh for Halloween cuteness. This is what I do instead of working sometimes. Well, this and click on links I see in my Facebook feed. But that’s not nearly as adorable. You can cut them using your fancy die cutters. … Read More
