Printable Halloween Cards

It's getting to be that time of year: my favorite holiday is around the corner... Halloween! I knew that I wanted to make a printable to celebrate. I enjoy crafting witch dolls so much, that I knew I had to use them as the inspiration for this printable card.

Lucky for you, this is a printable 2 for 1 (and both are free to download)! Either download the color version, or the black and white card, perfect for a kiddo with some crayons or markers. Enjoy!
