I've already told you that I am not a huge Halloween fan. But, boy am I having fun playing with my new papers and ribbons. I discovered that I did indeed own one more Halloween stamp and it had never seen ink so I decided to use it for this weeks Splitcoast Sketch Challenge. I added the Crystal Effects to the pumpkin last night after everything else was done. It BLED! I couldn't believe it when I woke up this morning and discovered that.. Lesson learned. Otherwise I am happy with the card.
Details, details- Card base is Paper Trey White, DP is Halloween Stripes from The Paper Studio; Other paper: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black CS. Stamps: Say it Simply, All Year Cheer 3 and Looks like Spring (Argyle). Accessories used: Screwhead brads; Word Window, 1 1/4" Circle, and Designer Label Punches as well as SU cutter kit and DECKLE SCISSORS Dusted off!); Palette Noir black and Pumpkin Pie ink and unknown ribbons.
I have a doctor's appointment this morning and then I must get ready to go to the commissary (military grocery store). For me this means planning a menu, making a grocery list and clipping and organizing coupons- a bit of a chore, but saves me lots of money in the long run and since I am not employed that is a must! BUT, if I have time I would love to participate in the other 2 challenges for this week: a pocket card and a limited supply Sympathy card! We'll see how that goes.
Tomorrow's plans? CHRIS TOMLIN is coming to town and our church is sponsoring the free event. DD and I are working one of the sales booths and hubby is helping tear down the stage. Should be fun! I'll try to check back in!
Have a great FRIDAY and a wonderful weekend~

Speaking of colors, I am GREEN with envy that you get to see Chris Tomlin. I listen to him constantly. I wake up to "Indescribable"...
