Happy Halloween and Hallo-weenie Too

 Just flying by with a quick card for Halloween...............

Using a Tim Holtz die cut and a sentiment from one of my Halloween sets of stamps.  Clouds made with some distress inks.    

Now........for the Hallo-weenie...........Rambo all decked out in his glow in dark trick or treat t-shirt.  This one is getting a little tight so I need to start looking for another one now I guess.  Too many treats? 

Thanks for stopping by........

A Fact

 Bottom line............It's a fact of life that as we get older we need more sympathy and get well cards.  

I always seem to have get well cards for the gals, but none for the guys. you go!  I used a stamp set from Art Impressions and just some scraps of paper that were already on my desk.   Colored in Copics and added some twine.  Nothing fancy at all but then most guys don't really care for the fancy stuff --- and besides that.....if you know me then you know I'm just not a very fancy type person at all.

Of course it's nothing to laugh about with a nurse that looks like this standing over you with a huge needle but hopefully it'll put a smile on a guys face anyway.  Laughter really is the best medicine!

I'll enter this in the challenge at Art Impressions....."Let's Hear it for the Boys".

What - No Story?

 Nope, no story today. Pretty much of a shock I know.  Just a card using a Taylored Expressions set of stamps, a stencil, some paper, and twine.

Happy Fall Y'all

 We're finally going to get some fall type weather around here.  We still have a few more days of summer/whatever since it's going to be in the 80's once again, but fall is right around the corner and should be here next week.  Yay!

Card:  Used an Art Impression image and watercolors (still practicing on that).  I think these are called Window images or something like that but I just made a very clean and simple card with the stamp.

The flowers:  Ah.....I love seeing all the different varieties of mums at the stores this time of year.  I KILL THEM!  I've decided that's probably one of the reasons for my existence.   Every year, I see the mums and they're so pretty - so I buy at least one pot, bring them home, and they promptly die.  I mean really quick too!   I leave them in their pots and they don't even hang around for a week and then they're dead .......SO, this year I'm going to do it different!  I bought some this morning (see below) and have set them on the counter.  By tomorrow morning they'll be in the ground outside!  Yep, going to try that and see if it's any better.  I'll try and keep you updated on their death.  (And by the way.....if you look really close you can see the toe of my blue sneaker on the left.  Smile)!!

Getting Close to Halloween

 YAY!!!  It's getting close to Halloween!  If you've followed my blog for while you already know how much I dislike Halloween..........however.........Halloween means candy corn and yes, I DO LOVE candy corn.  I'm know it's not good for you but yes, I already bought some for the year  - and yes, I already ate it too!   Yum!  There's no candy corn on my clean and simple cards but they'll still be ok for Halloween.  On both cards I used the same simple design and Penny Black images.

Shake Your.....Pom Pom

Football season is in full swing now and one of the granddaughters is on the sidelines shaking her whatever they all seem to shake these days.  There's a LOT of shakin' going on for sure too!  I just wish I had half the energy these kids have.  I used to be able to "shake it" too - but now different things on the body shake that aren't supposed to!  Anyway, this is a card for her and to also enter in the challenge at Inky Paws from Newton's Nook.

I used an older set of Newton's Nook stamps called Touchdown Tails.  The images were colored, cut out and popped up on a tag.  I used a star stencil on the tag with Nuvo Glimmer paste giving it some shine.  The stars and sentiment seemed to go together perfect.
