Hey everyone, hope you are all having a good week!! When I seen the themes of Simon Says Stamp and Show and Grungy Mon. on Linda Ledbetter's blog on Mon. I got right on it and started this project and almost had it finished on Mon. Then a couple of ten hour days at work and a couple more to come I stayed up last night and got it done!! I think my witchy poo was still a little wet when I photographed this! lol

I thought it would be fun to make a Halloween decoration and put a light behind it. So I took a picture matt and adhered a piece of Tim's Kraft Resist paper on it. Then another piece under with the rickety house then decorated with other die cuts. It does look really cool in person all lite up!

Close up of the light behind it.
I've got to get a shake on and get to work!

Have a good one!

You Ain't Seen Nothin Yet

Hey there, hope everyone is having a good weekend. Thanks for all the nice comments & suggestions on my last post, much appreciated!! Just posting a little something I did for SSSS where the challenge this week is Show The Wendy Vecchi Style, I love Wendy's style!! And also my entry for the Making Art Challenge on Everything Wendy Vecchi yahoo group where the challenge this week is a sewing theme. Wendy's stamps and art parts make it easy to make art, love them!!

My boss had made this dress form when she was at the last CHA and gave it to me when she returned. I knew right away that I would alter it differently, not that it's bad just new I wanted to alter it in a different way. So both of these challenges prompted me to get it done!

This is what it looked like before.

After I altered it.

I used Tim's Kraft Resist Paper to cover the dress form and used Wendy's Art Parts and stamps for the embellishments along with Tim's ideaology. I love those Art Parts!! Fun little project!

Have a good one!

Boo Banner

Hey everyone, hope you had a nice weekend!! I had a pretty low key weekend and I was able to get this Boo Banner done for a class I will be doing at work. Now after seeing these pics I think I need to add something else to them, not sure what but they need something, maybe some spiders? Again not the best pics, I think I need a photography class!! lol I used Tim Holtz die cuts, stickles etc. it was a lot fun putting this together!

We have another beautiful day here in ND, 81 degrees out and I'm loving it!! It won't be much longer and the snow will be flying! YUK !! Gotta take advantage of all the nice days we can get, I love fall with all the beautiful colors!!
Have a good one!!

Show Men Only

It was World Card Making Day today and I actually got a card done!! Woo Hoo unbelievable!! This will also be my entry for the challenge on Simon Says Stamp and Show blog where the challenge this week is Show Men Only.

I used Tim Holtz Kraft resist paper and Wendy Vecchi-Studio 490 stamps.

I will be sending this to my son in Afghanistan so I didn't want to put to much embellishments on it. Picture didn't turn out so hot (shadows) but I tried my best at outdoor & indoor lighting and this is the best I could get. lol

I had a great week this week, grandson #5...Kolten was born on Tues. he is adorable!! Will post a pick here soon.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!
