Spooky Halloween

With the days getting shorter and the mornings and evenings getting chilly I was thinking Halloween can't be too far away. I found these stamps at a garage sale this summer. They are from Stampin Up! and were retired years ago. I had a good time playing with them. There are 4 in the set and the fourth one is the saying which is inside the card. I am thinking these would also make cool bookmarks for Halloween. I colored them all with my Copic markers. This one was colored for a color swap in one of my groups. We had to use orange, green and purple. That just reeks of Halloween to me, how about you?

Until next time, Happy trails...

Dr. Seuss

I know someone who is going through a very tough time right now, so I made a card for her. The inside says, "And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! 98 3/4% guaranteed". For those of you have forgotten your Dr. Seuss! I hope she likes it. It is from the new Taylored Expressions The Places You'll Go set. I always give that book to graduates and love the message it gives. I colored the little bit that had to be colored with Copics and sprinkled glitter on the mountain tops. The paper is from my stash. Of course I used my Nesties to cut and emboss.

Until next time... Happy Trails

Everyday Button Bits

Finally it is a long weekend to enjoy. I love 3 day weekends! The first day is spent getting caught up on stuff and going to the grocery store. The second day is usually spent doing chores and getting ready for work the next day so the third day is a gift! A day to relax and do whatever comes your way. Today I did finish a library book called Still Life by Joy Fielding. It was one to keep you on the edge of your chair and a real page turner. Good book. This afternoon I visited my Mom. She has had a couple of pretty bad days. She fell this morning and has been extremely confused since yesterday. She is seeing many of her old friends who have died years ago. And having terrifying dreams. It is so sad to end up like this but I know that God has a reason for everything so who am I to question Him.

Todays card is made from a PaperTreyInk set called Everyday Button Bits. This is such a fun set and there is so much you can do with it. I think this one speaks for itself and need no explanation. If you do have questions, you can email me.

Until next time, Happy Trails...
