Freebie: Happy Hallowe'en 2020

Hello on a cold (-3 degrees Celsius), damp and dreary Hallowe'en night! While we had our first snowfall of the year a few days ago, the cold wet weather is persisting. Unfortunately, I don't think that many kids will be out and about tonight. We've purchased some treats just in case but I can't see too many parent letting their kids go out given the current pandemic that is raging through its second wave here in Ontario. The numbers in my home province are almost twice what they were in the spring on a daily basis and our hospitals are filling again! Thankfully in my own community the numbers continue to be relatively low. At least that is one benefit of living in the northern part of the province! It has been quite a year hasn't it?! I hope that you and your families continue to stay safe out there wherever you may happen to live.

While hubby remains downstairs ready to hand out treats just in case any kids brave it (it's already close to 7:00 p.m. and not a knock so far), as usual I've been up here on the second floor of our home on the computer getting stuff ready for the first of the month and of course making you all a Hallowe'en themed digi paper. Now I am aware that some of you do not celebrate Hallowe'en, but as I've mentioned in years past, Hallowe'en is actually of Christian origin. Whether you celebrate it or not, maybe you can find some use for this year's freebie.

Check out the preview...

This digital paper is 3600 x 3600 pixels, in jpg format and published at 300 dpi. I've used resources from Creative Fabrica Crafts and HG Designs. Full credits in the file. To grab it, click the download button to be taken to a download location. In the zip folder you will find a copy of the paper, its preview sheet, the full credit information and my terms of use which are standard to all my folders.

It is a busy time of month so join me at The 12 Months of Christmas for our newest link up or at Scribbles Designs for our midway tomorrow. Then if everything goes according to plan, I should see you again next Friday when I'll be back with my card for Pattie's Creations!
Until next time,
