Something kitten and I have in common 
is a less than enthusiastic affection for Halloween

You would think it would be right up her ally 
being a black cat and all.....

but the freakishly costumed beings on two legs 
cause her to hiss and hide.

While she is able to avoid it, I cannot.

Over at Marie Antoinette Mail Art group, 
we began 'celebrating' Halloween a while ago.

All the swaps are Halloween themed, 
and one that I am part of is the Gothic Arches

So, keeping with theme and even using orange, 
a color I seldom think of using,
I finished my project.
I think

I may add one more thing...
but that is how it always is
and since I have a few days before I need to mail
the possibility that something else will be added

is huge!!
They are done on mat board so they are quite sturdy.

As always, your work is beautiful, Rella. I think you worked orange in rather nicely!

I'm not a big fan of Halloween, either!
