Speedy's on the Prowl!

Halloween wouldn't be the same without a black cat.  And Speedy has a great set for you this month!

After making this card:

I was inspired to carry it through to an easle drawer. 

The drawer slides out to reveal a pair of candy corn baby socks for my sister's "soon to be here" baby boy!  The box measures 4x4x1...and was super fun to make!  And a neat little size for little trinkets or mini cards.
