Helloooooo there! How are you? How is your weekend going so far? Mine has been pretty busy and fun actually! I cannot believe it's almost five o'clock Sunday night and another weekend is almost over. Dang. How does time go so fast? And I have to go make dinner after this. Anyhooo... Yesterday among other errands I picked out new eyeglasses. That is so hard, isn't it? Such a big decision. I had about 20 pairs all laid out in front of me...and finally myself, hubs and the sweet lady at the optician's chose these frames. They look like lace! Very cool and just enough funky! Hahaha. Friday night I went out for dinner and drinks to celbrate a friend's birthday...and today I am crafting (and chores too). It's gorgeous Fall weather outside - love it!
So, my blog this week is going to be kinda all over the place! The rest of the week I'm posting Christmas cards for two guest designing spots I'm doing! So I figured, what the heck, let's post a Halloween card today! LOL. I colored in these images two weeks ago and they've been sitting on my desk waiting to be made into a card... Witch way to the candy!?
I seriously LOVE coloring this MFT images. This one is Birdie Brown as a little witch! ACK. I colored in lots of images and then played around with them. I wanted to use them all! There are matching dies to cut out everything just so. I used my Copic markers and then at the end, added some touches of prisma glitter.
This crazy bat cracks me up! I am loving the kraft paper with the black....really crisp. My card layout was done using some brand new dies, also from MFT. They are called Blueprints 14. They concept is that the pieces of the die set make card sketches. This is my first set of these but I think I am going to get some more. Made it really easy to put everything together.
Lots and lots of foam squares on this card! LOL.
Can you see that I used a Stampin' Up Embossing Folder with stars for my kraft background? This photo shows the touches of glitter...
All day today in the craft room, Mr. Buddy was right by my side - either sleeping or just generally supervising the whole situation. I caught him in the window, and the light caught his pretty golden eyes, so I grabbed my iPhone and snapped this photo! If I do dare say so myself, he is quite the handsome chap! I love that cat!!
I will see you back here on Wednesday for the first of my fun guest designer posts. Until then, have a blessed week! Mwah.
