Spooky Card

This weekend was super busy. I was Co-host for the Austin Texas SCS Shoebox swap and wow, am I tired. Tonight as I was going through all my doorpizes and cards and stuff I was motivated to stamp. I won this Unity stamp set called Unlucky 13. I have to admit, it's the first Halloween set I have ever owned. I always think Halloween cards are so cute but I know I would never send anyone a halloween card...until now. My daughter is away at college and I will send her a little something this year. I had no idea where to begin so I just went for it. The ribbon across the top is cute is that?!

I know it's kind of plain but I am a Halloween card virgin so try to cut me some slack.Maybe I will dream up something more elaborate tomorrow.

The final piece

Here is the final piece of my doorprize. No one really wants just a bunch of homemade stuff so I am including a giftcard with my prize. I love to alter tins, they just have endless possibilities. Again, matchy matchy!

Hello everyone. I know it's been a very long time since I posted. I have had some major changes in my life over the last couple of months and stamping and crafting have taken the biggest hit. I had to just let it all go for awhile but hopefully I can get back to it soon. I do have a couple things to show you. This weekend is the Austin Texas SCS shoebox swap and I am co-hosting with a couple other SCS'ers. We are having 38 attendees this year and we are doing something different. It's going to be at a retreat center in Georgetown instead of our usual location. That means we will be staying overnight, well actually, 2 nights.Not everyone is staying over night but we do have the facility all weekend. So I have my card ready and most of my doorprize ready.I decided to use a color theme for all my simplified my life. I need simple right now. I am recovering from major surgury, a hysterectomy, followed by a major post-op bladder infection. Not fun. I hope to be ready to have fun this weekend!

This is the first section.

This is the second section for projects other than cards.

The chip board album is from Jody Morrow she sells all kinds of cool diecuts and chipboard products. I was able to use my CB to cut out the chipboard letters for the cover. When I ordered the album I went ahead and purchased a 12 x 12 sheet of black chipboard and I used the CB Redtag alphabet. The nightlight was a Target dollarspot item that I covered and altered. I plan to have one more item that I haven't got yet (yikes)but will be ready on Friday for sure.

I used PTI CS in Razberry Fizz and Black. Razberry Fizz ribbon. SU oval punch and scalloped oval punch. All stamps are penny black stamps. Images colored with Copic markers.
