Bela rides again


Bela Lugosi rides again.  This time, he's bringing Joanne a load of toilet paper for her birthday.  I hope she doesn't see this until then!  I still haven't found my mojo for making cards for the heroes, but this one seemed to come pretty easily, so maybe things are looking better in the crafting area.

Shakers, shakers and more shakers


I kind of went hog wild on a couple of shaker kits, but I'm glad I did, because it's at least getting me into my craft area.  I'll use these for the Valentines that I send every year to the ladies I used to work with at my previous employer.  I'll probably end up making them all shaker cards for their birthdays too.  I like to use things up and I'm getting tired of having the kits just sitting.

A Little Holiday Cheer


Just "a little" holiday cheer - coz I'm really lacking in it this year.  I did the stencil thing again, because I'm still too lazy to do much else.

Playing with stencils


More playing with stencils.  I like the look of these and the colors.   They're also kind of quick to pull together and since I still haven't got my mojo back, at least I'm doing something creative.  Thanks for looking!  I hope you're doing well and have more holiday spirit than I do!

Happy Thanksgiving

I'm still having trouble finding my mojo - I found some inspiration from a Gina K. video and went out in the yard and use a leaf, some Versamark and embossing powder to make the base of this card.  The sentiment is from a Stampin Up set called Country Blessings   I hope you both have a safe Thanksgiving.  Fingers crossed that I get some mojo back before Christmas!

 This is another Hero Arts set that took a little while to get used to but I had a good time playing with the little tombstones and the walking dead.  There was too much empty sky and I didn't want to fill it with bats, although that would have been nice.....  so I found this witch and last night was a full moon.  Unfortunately, I kept the witch stamp in a baggie, so I have no idea what company it's from.  I wish that long ago, when I started getting into this whole rubber stamp thing, that I would have made notes!

Pumpkin Patch


This stamp set was a bugger!  (Hero Arts)  I thought I had a lot of patience, but OMG, I threw out so many first attempts before I got used to this.  You really need to be precise with the stamp platform or it's just a mess.  Once I got the hang of it though, I was having fun.
