Originally issued on October 10th, 1974 by the United States Postal Service, these 10¢ Legend of Sleepy Hollow stamps were the perfect add to my Halloween themed envelope. Also, in yesterday's (or day before yesterday) post, I photographed the 32¢ Classic Movie Monsters (1997) postage. The movie monsters was another perfect find for Halloween.
I wrote my recipient's name in white ink (my calligraphy needs lots of practice), stamped the edges of the envelope with a rubber stamp of tiny stars using my Martha Stewart ink pad, and added paper bits (skeleton hand, black cat) which I cut by hand and glued to my envelope.
Are you sending out Halloween greetings this month? You still have time.
p.s. Here's a photo of one of my envelopes. I had to edit Patricia's address for this photo, in case you were wondering why the address was so spaced out. It's great having Photoshop (^^) xo
