Gone Batty

I LOVE this Halloween card! It helps that the stamper is one of the most talented artists that I know! And it just so happens that she is my upline too! You have to check out Diana's blog.....and be prepared to be in awe!
First, I LOVE the textured background. I am just on a texture kick lately. And then I love the little pops of color that add so much! I especially love the little light! I am not positive, but I am guessing that she made it by sticking the eraser end of a pencil in the ink and then onto the stamped image. Cute!

Are you ready for Halloween? The 6 of us have our costumes! And I think we are picking one up for the dog too! So my husband and I are going as Fred and Wilma. My son is going as an astronaut. The twins are going as a rock star and a cheerleader. And the youngest is going as a Ladybug. They also have to dress up for a literacy parade at school. So Kyler will be Ralph S. Mouse. Danika is going to be Angelina Ballerina. Makenzie is going to be Pinkalicious. So as you might guess...we have costume pieces all over the place!!!! Anyone got a creative costume?

For Your Viewing Pleasure......

I absolutly LOVE making Halloween projects. So you can imagine my disapointment about not being quite ready to stamp yet and it is already October 21st! But since I have to host a Kindergarten Halloween party next week, I WILL stamp soon! I insist that they have cute, hand made treats!

Since I haven't been stamping, I decided to show you some amazing cards I got in a demonstrator Holiday Mini swap quite a while ago. Today's card is amazing!!!! It was made by Barbara Pirk.

I love how she blended the various colors to create the sky. And you probably can't see in the picture, but just about all the black is embossed.

I love how it is a 3d card. So unique!

The Kindergarteners will definatly NOT be receiving cards like this!!!
Thanks for stopping by.

I have not vanished.....

.....I have just had to take a break to take care of health problems (and spend time with my sweet kiddos on their fall breaks). I won't bore you all with the details but if you are really curious (and want to say a prayer for me) you can read my personal story HERE.

Just know that my fingers are itching to do some stamping! It's gonna be real soon too. You know I can't resist Halloween stamping!
