That Spooky Night

I  may be gone away from my blog again for several days after today. Going to a ball game Saturday and my sis is coming for a visit on Sunday and we will have a lot to. Did I mention we have a super scrapbook store that we love to visit? Anyone want to send a donation for our shopping trip?  LOL Yes, Michael's, Jo Ann Stores, and Hobby Lobby will be visited, too. Hey, we can even go online for crafties.  Fun, fun, fun!!!

I wanted and needed to make a Halloween card. I spent so much time with this card. There are several digital images on this card and also several wooden stamp images. I really think it is so cute in real life. I made it larger than usual (5 x7) to fit it all the items I used.

This card is entered into the Splitcoaststampers QFTD182. This is the gorgeous card I was supposed to case. It belongs to Tina aka GardenDiva. Well, it barely resembles hers. Ugh! Does my card look as if I got carried away? YES!!

And, another card for Pixie's Crafty Workshop #90---I used snippets getting my characters made

I'm also sending my card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-- use a product that is available in the Simon Says Stamp Store and state what you used. I used the Stampendous Stamp Give Candy Blockart.  I also used their Memento dew drops ink/Girls Night Out-Tuxedo Black and Arizona Canyons-Desert Sand. SSS is also having a STAMPtember blog hop going on.

I've been away on a trip and missing on my blog. Glad to get home but missing my son and his family like crazy. My trip explains why I haven't been to visit your blogs lately or uploaded since my little snowmen. I will remedy that soon. I may have to miss commenting on what I didn't catch while I was away but go from now.

I cased a card that belonged to Cindy aka frenziedstamper on Splitcoasterstampers. She is the new reigning Queen for the Day. Here is her gorgeous card. I would have loved to have used those same colors but needed to change it up a  bit. It's an easy CAS card...just some stamping and sponging.

I did soften my photo a bit. After other tweaking, it was still starker than in real life. Yikes! I didn't like that look so you get the mellow version. It is still so much brighter than in real life. I kind of wish, also, that I had stamped my sentiment in black.

I'm going over to Pixie's Crafty Workshop with my card. Now, that is one fun place to visit. I always leave with a big grin on my face after reading Di's posts. Makes my day! My birdies were made with snippets of white cardstock which I inked in blue. My stamped panel was also from that a big snippet? Ha

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is to use a product from their store and name it: My product is Memento 4 Dew Drop Ink Pads-Farmer's Market. I'm using the cantaloupe ink from that set. They are also celebrating STAMPtember with a blog hop.
