JCS Halloween Issue ... Let's see it together Part 2

I'm back.  A couple of hours after they came through the door, all of our orders are on their way to their new owners. I had lots of fun, putting them in the envelopes, since they have been prepared for a while.  Hubby took them to the post-office and soon our friends will be just as happy as I am right now.

So, let's see some more.... I promise, I didn't peek ahead....
