Halloween Hanging Sign - First 2011 Project!!!

Hi All,
You're probably wondering what the heck I'm posting a Halloween item for, but here's the reason... I have been meaning forever to send a "thank you" card to my friends who hosted the amazing Halloween party we went to, but have just not gotten around to it!  So today, I decided to finally do it and I wanted it to be Halloween themed, but a card just wasn't big enough for what I had already created to work with so I decided to go bigger and made a little 8x8 hanging sign that they could put up every year if they wish.  I am going to post several pics of it.  I made a little tag that tucks into the gate and is removable and reversible.  One side has a handwritten note of thanks to them and the other side has stickers that say Memories Like These.  Enjoy the pics!
