My Favorite Halloween Costume

Tomorrow is Halloween, and frankly, I’m pumpkined and ghosted out.   But these two cards brought back a wonderful Halloween memory.   When I was about 10 yrs old I dressed up as a scarecrow for Halloween.   This was long before stores that sold costumes.   Old overalls, a flannel shirt stuffed with straw, and a broomstick across my shoulders to hold the sleeves out, with work gloves pinned to the end.  I stuck my hands out the sides of the overalls to retrive my candy and dump it into my pillow case.    I had two older  brothers to protect me and a younger one to try to keep up with.   I can still remember which neighbors had the good candy and the ones who just set out a bowl of wrigley’s gum and wouldn’t answer their door.

DT Alumni Holly Craft created the card above using our Scarecrow and Welcome Home.   DT Member Cathy Weber created the card below using the Scarecrow and It’s That Time.

    Love both cards. What a great memory ,Mary! We never bought a costume either. My best friend and I would start making our costumes in August because we couldn’t wait. Love Cathy’s 3 d card!
