before i get on a christmas in october streak for the stamp release countdown beginning later this week, i wanted to share a few october specific invitations. first up, an oldie with a twist. my pirate map invitations (great in a bottle too!) have long been one of my most requested designs. so when someone asked if i could give the map a halloween makeover, i was all over it. it's always nice to repeat invitations, but it's even more fun to recreate one with new touches. a little more orange and black, a ghost here, a jack o' lantern there, and of course a full skeleton along the way. don't you want to have a pirate halloween party now?!
