Had a BUSY weekend so a couple of things... Thanks for the cards we got over the weekend.

Shadow Black - Yep hit the nail on the head we're insane.... the certs will get framed and added to the picture wall.
Holly Haunter & Red Flayer - lovely penmanship inside and some I think homemade confetti.
Illysium - Love the creepy creature stickers you used

Now for our news sharing here first... On Saturday we were in the small town of Bucoda, WA. In Oct they rename the town BOO-coda and have weekends filled with all kinds of Halloween activities. Last Saturday was the hearse parade and viewing. Our first time doing this kind of thing, we went to met other hearse owners. Maybe network on where to find replacement pieces and just talk about our babies. Well we didn't know there were awards to be handed out till we got there. Luckily for us we never unloaded all the hearses decorations from last weekend's creepy camp out because I knew we'd be decorating the hearse again for the local Halloween trick or treat event. We've been slowly working on Spirit Quest (the hearse's nickname) she's come a long way, new tranny, new rag top, body work to fix HUGE rusty patches that leaked like a faucet, new front windshield, engine work ( Frog's a mechanic) but she still in need of paint, a little more electrical work and a few trim pieces. Imagine our shock when they called out car 7 as the winner best in show. That's us.... WHAT they had to be wrong there were so many newer, shinier or we thought decorated hearses there. Here's Spirit, Earl, his bride and our dark passenger Wolfy

Congrats! I was just reading about Boo-coda while looking for haunts near Bellingham (only one I've found so far). That's so awesome that you guys put so much work into your rig and won!

Hey! It's not a specific font, they are hand lettered with brush pens.... so brush calligraphy is what I suppose you can look up.
Oh my.How beautiful. From the picture ( so small) I thought it was printed. I purchased a calligraphy set a few years ago. It's on my desk. I keep dusting it off, and telling myself someday SOON I'm going to start practicing. Have you been doing it for a long time?
