Halloween Nails

Here it is midnight, and I've just finished my nails. It's funny, I did a Halloween theme and tomorrow I'm off to a Christmas Card Class. I can thank Pinterest for the nail idea.

Just wanted to share.

Happy Halloween

Oh Christmas Tree X Two

Good evening everyone.  Today was a very productive first day of my holidays.  It was a jammie day. Most of the day was spent in front of the TV with the computer.  Daughter and me got caught up on Supernatural.  While watching I surfed the web, played some games.  Did a couple loads of laundry.  This evening I even managed to make a tag. 

While checking on blogs today, I came across a tag that just jumped out at me.  Here is my version. You can find the original at Gone by the Board.

I liked the tag so much, I made another one and mounted it onto a card. 

Not bad for one evenings work.

Here Comes Santa

Evening everyone.  Well, my boy didn't get overly dirty yesterday.  I managed to see his race.  He was near the back of the pack, but not dead last.  Very proud of him for going for the day. 

Whipped up a quick card tonight.  Inked up my stamping block with two colors of ink, and spritzed with water.  Stamping on watercolor paper.  Then using black ink stamped Santa .  Love these easy cards.

Dive into the Scrap Bucket

Good morning everyone.  A quick post before I'm off to watch my son run the Muskoka Mud Run.  He got up this morning wishing he hadn't signed up.  It has rained for the last several days.  I can only imagine what he'll look like when he's done.  He had to take a change of clothes with him.  The bad part, his outdoor runners have a huge hole in the top of them and he can't run in them.  So it was off to Walmart last night for new shoes that I've been putting off buying.  At least they are black.  Hoping hubbie has disconnected the hose yet.  I think we'll need it. 

Last night I whipped up a card.  Really have to get my butt in gear.  I only have a few weeks till the craft sale.  I used my new snow globe again, this time with Santa in it.

. The sketch I followed is from Graphicat. Hop on over and check them out.

Let It Snow

Hello everyone.  It's the end of a very wet weekend.  I have felt as grey as the weather.  Picking up the leaves and pine needles was on the agenda for the weekend.  Yesterday was off to a slow start.  Then the rain set in and hasn't stopped.  Dear daughter has had a cold this week, and I feel like I'm fighting to not get it.  Sore throat, heavy chest.  And sleeping on the couch for two nights doesn't help.  Her cough becomes worse at bedtime.  Usually an extra pillow to prop up is enough, but not this time.  Thanks to the Lazy Boys in the couch so she can semi sit up to sleep.  Here's hoping I can sleep in bed tonight. 
Good thing about the rain today, I was able to make a card.  I've finally gotten to use my new set from Flourish's.  Just love the snow globe.  There are three different images to go inside.  Here is the first one. 

The sketch I used was from the Sweet Stop

It's a Start

Evening all. So I made it final, I bit the bullet and signed up for the craft sale in November. I've done this show for several years now, and between my cards and painted Christmas ornamentsdo not bad. But I have no Christmas cards left from last year, so have alot of work ahead of me. I made progress tonight.  Thought I'd start with some tags. I do need some help. I stamped the trees with green distress ink and want to color the trunks brown. Thought markers would work well, but what kind? I have sharpies, identi pens, and spectrum noir. Or would pencil crayons work better? Any suggestions out there?

Happy crafting
