Happy Halloween

My time away has helped my neck and shoulder heal immensely. I can tell if I'm on the computer too much so I do limit my time online now. This card is a bit out of my comfort zone as it is sort of a scene. I had fun making it and hope to do more like this. The haunted house and bat is Stampin' Up and I used a Memory Box die over it. The crow is a Lil' B and sentiment is also SU. The background sky is sponged.

Ghosts like to ride in elevators. It lifts their spirits.

So easy

I am having some issues with my left shoulder and across my neck so I'm limiting my time on the computer to see if that helps. I'll be by to visit as much as I can but comments are short right now.

This is an old red rubber stamp and I don't know it's name. I stamped it in black and embossed it in clear embossing powder. It looked so bare so I added the punched out eyes since I thought the grands would love that the eyes are reading the sentiment. So easy. 

I have a neighbor who speaks to his garden. Yes, Jack and the beans talk.

Cloaked witch

This is a brand new die called Cloaked Witch by Memory Box. She is cut from mirror black cardstock and glued to a Spellbinders scalloped die. I edged the scallop with black ink to make it a bit more spooky. The sentiment is one I've had for a long time. Pattern paper from my stash.

I'm sending this card to mynbus.

If seagulls lived by the bay, would they be called bagels?

I'd like to you meet Frankie on my non-threatening Halloween card. I think he's kind of cute! Frankie was made using a Lasting Impressions brass stencil from many, many years ago.  I think you can only get them now on Etsy or E Bay but when I got mine they were really popular. I taped it to my cardstock and inked through it. So easy to do. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. 

Six out of seven dwarfs aren't happy.

A spooky story

While I was making this card I was looking for pictures of crows so I could color him. I didn't know if they were always all black. I looked out the window over my craft desk and there were six crows on the fence. I rarely see any and this was just freaky, like I conjured them  up! They sat there for a few minutes, then flew off. Very weird.  Anyway, this is the card 

Step aside coffee, this is a job for alcohol.

Thank you

What a fantastic birthday it was and made special by so many of you. Thank you for the cards and well wishes for my day. I enjoyed the day so much and talked to so many people who called. It's wonderful to be this age and remembered by so many people that aren't family.

Today I'm sharing a Halloween card for my great granddaughter. It is a Stampendous pumpkin stamp and framed by a Die-namic die. The felt black cat was in my stash. I didn't want to make a scary card for her and she will recognize a pumpkin and a kitty. I don't know why it looks so crooked. I took several pictures and it doesn't look like that in person.

Plastic surgery anonymous meets tonight. I hope we don't see any new faces.

Be kind to one another.

Moving on

I'm moving on to the making of Halloween cards for the grands. The birthday cards for the family are finished. Seven birthdays in a one month period for us.

This is a My Favorite Things stamp colored with Copics.  I fussy cut the frog and added him next to her. The Boo was stamped on a Poppy Stamps die and popped up. Then the card was splattered with green and purple inks to match the mats. 

My prayers are with all the people who were touched by Ian. What a devastating storm. 

You say a boring four hour car ride. I say a four hour concert featuring me.

Be kind to one another.
