An appeal on behalf of the undead
Please people, I know it's all fun and excitement in the run-up to Halloween, but remember that there are literally hundreds of zombies in rescue shelters all across the country, just waiting for someone to take them home and give them the love and attention they deserve. Please take a moment away from witches and pumpkins and look deep in your heart to see if, just maybe, there's room in your life for one of these low-maintenance creatures. A few scraps of flesh once or twice a day will be enough to feed your new best friend. Contrary to populat belief, zombies don't only eat brains. Although they do enjoy them as an occasional treat, so if you get irritated by door-to-door salesmen, feel free to lure one inside and feed him to your pet. The average salesman can keep a zombie fed for several weeks. Food and a small enclosed garden to stumble around in is all your zombie will need, and in return, you'll get a loyal companion for the forseeable future.
The image above is the beautiful Morticia by Simply Betty Stamps, and the nasty zombification work is all my own. The largest bp is from Broken Dreams by Crafty Chaos Designs, and the purple strip at the front is one I made specifically for this card.
