Happy Wednesday to you!!  My sisters Renee and Jovonna have been working on cards and other items to celebrate "Dia de los Muertos" (Day of the Dead). For those of you who don't know this is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures.The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. The celebration takes place on October 30th in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' day and All Souls' Day (November 2nd). So your probably wondering why they are making items in July for a celebration that takes place in October.  For those of you who know my sister Renee this is her favorite thing to create all year long.

This stamp is  just so cute.

Jovonna took samples of these cards to the merchants in "Old Town" here in Albuquerque and one of the Merchants purchased 20 of them. Wow!!  He told her if they sell he will purchase more from them.  They are so excited and I am so happy for them. I am finally going to made Ladies Card Night tonight!! Yeah!! So make sure you check back on Thursday so I can share all the great cards they made!!
