Irene and Sketch 84

Irene is just finishing up in my area with high winds and so I thought I'd better get the jump on her and post this before I lose power...again....  I used paper from Cloud 9, Martha Stewart and Hampton Arts stamps, a Sizzix button die and a Basic Grey brad.  It's my contribution to the new holiday, proclaimed by Sandy at Operation Write Home, Hall-NO-Ween.  I was wondering what to do with all my witches and ghosts and spiders, oh my!
I also need to rant a little about Irene, who managed to cause some water damage in my craft room.  Waaaa!!!
Luckily some of the water fell right into my trays for embossing, some went on the rug (and I blamed poor Ozzy at first....) and a lot got soaked up by a stack of old pin-feed paper that I use for scrap.  She did make a direct hit on 6 any hero cards, of which only one I can save some parts.....  :-( 

I told her I didn't do it!!!!!  


  1. What a cute image/sentiment combo. Perfect for Hall-NO-ween! Sorry to hear you suffered dmage from Irene. I'm on the Conn. coast but was really lucky to have no significant damage, unlike may of my neighbors :(

  2. I LOVE THIS! What a great card. I'm curious about the Hall-NO-ween...I'll have to look that up. I'm sorry about your craft room & cards!! I'm glad Ozzy is out of the doghouse! :) Thanks for sharing!

  3. Great Hall-No-Ween card! The sentiment goes great with your spiders! Sorry about your scrap room - does this mean you get to buy new supplies??! Poor Ozzy! Thankfully he is proven innocent and back on the "good" dog list! I love the photo of him - just perfect for the day he had!

  4. LOL! How cute!

    Thankfully for me, Irene ended up being a big bust and the we have very little rain and some wind gusts, but NOTHING like I had expected! I'm sure glad that I convinced DH not to take out of AC Units.

    I am very sorry for anyone who suffered any harm or damage and power loss. It really was rather mild here and at this point, I'm very happy it's OVER!!

    Take care!!

  5. Adorable card! I love the spiders coming down in the back. Sorry about your water damage, but glad you are safe! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  6. just lovely .......
    poor Ozzy, always being blamed for bad stuff, guess he told you though in this shot :)

  7. Sorry to hear Irene dumped on you. Poor Ozzy gets blamed for everything!
