Boo Y'all

     Just stopping by to wish everyone a safe and Happy Halloween!  It is going to be a wet one, here in Delaware!

     It seems that blogger has decided to not allow photos to post now, and I am not the only person with this problem.  Guess I will see you when this gets fixed!

Time To Get Ready To Scare!


      I love autumn, and Halloween is part of that time!  I thought I was finished with my cards until I acquired the Big Bold Jack-O-Lantern from Colorado Craft Co.  It stamps beautifully and as with their other new stamps, looks perfect stamped off the edge.  After stamping it, I colored the pumpkin with Copic markers.  Next, I moved to creating my background with Distress Oxide inks.  This was spritzed with water, to make the sky look spooky. My moon was created with a 1 1/4" punch and cut.  The bats are sparkly sequins I picked from a mix.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I needed a little something for the bottom so I double stamped some corn stalks that are from an older set by Gina K. Designs.  I think this is one of my very favorite cards I created this year!

     It has been a wild week here in DE.  My husband retired last Friday, we celebrated our 42nd anniversary, and we both caught a bad cold.  Ugh!  Instead of arising at 4:30 am, everyone sleeps in!  Boy, that can sure mess with a girls routine!  Anyway, it is good to have him home, but very different.

     Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to be around as time permits!

Happy World Card Making Day!

     As I am enjoying all the posts and You Tube videos, I thought I better post something on this special day.  Hope you get creative in some way today.

      Recently a dear friend celebrated her birthday and this was the card I sent to her.  I love roosters and the rustic feel of this card.  I used assorted assorted dies and scraps of designer papers from my huge tub.  I even found a scrap of burlap and pulled threads from the edges to make my tiny bow.  I added some rub on gold to my rooster, and Nuvo drops as my embellishments.

     I would like to share this at the following:

     I think fall has finally made it's way to DE.  The ac is off and yesterday we were able to leave windows open all day.  Today is chilly and the builders are taking advantage of the temps, and since it is now so dry, the air is full of dust.  Maybe they will quit soon!
