OK! Halloween! Ready for it? We are! Well … when I say "we" I mean Craig and the kids are. To be honest Halloween is not my "thing". I could quite happily have it removed from the calendar and move right on in to Christmas. I dunno - maybe it's because I never had a particularly cool costume as a kid. I don't remember many of them but I DO remember being stressed out about FINDING a costume. Of course back in the day we didn't just go out an buy a costume - you made one from what you had already. I struggled with that and more than once ended up wearing my Dad's robe with a pillow tied to my stomach, curlers in my hair and carrying a coffee cup. Yup - I went as a housewife! *lol* Hmmm …. let's HOPE that's not how I look everyday now that I AM a housewife!
Today's going to be a long day. The kids (and Craig) are excited about the fun of tonight (whilst Halloween is not MY favourite gig of the year it IS Craig's! … he traditionally takes one or two days off work to set up the garage as a haunted house to traumatize the children!) - and after Trick-or-Treating there will be a Halloween party and sleepover with 4 guests. Of course it's daylight savings time tonight so there will seem like and extra hour to recover from the "fun" … but of course that also means and extra long day for the kids to ingest coma-inducing amounts of sugar! Oi! I may need to stock up on Aspirin!
OK - enough about that - let's check out a project, shall we?
I can't take credit for this one - total CASE from … who else … the fabulous Mary Fis over at www.stampinpretty.com ...
Te set uses the set You've Got This from the main catalogue. You just HAVE to love making a card that only uses one stamp set! The colours used are Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake and Whisper White. It is a ridiculously quick and easy card! For a little dimension and interest I added some gold sequins (from the gold sequin trim), popped a banner up on dimenionals and wrapped some gold Baker's Twine behind it. Seriously quick and easy.
That's it for today. Have fun with your Halloween, whatever you get up to … and have a stampy day!
