Happy Friday, Yall!
Hello everyone! Well I'm really getting into the Halloween Spirit and have been getting these cards ready to share with you. I don't really decorate for Halloween anymore, but I used to really get into the holiday! There would be bales of straw, pumpkins, squash, mums, corn plants black ribbons...the hole smear. Then I got old and realized the straw dropped all kinds of seeds and I had to go pull up those weeds and I also had to clean up the mess. My grandsons are too old to trick or treat so I just don't do those things anymore. I used to sit on the front steps with my bowl of candy until every little goblin had gone home, but somewhere along the line the padding in my butt, though much thicker now, just wasn't enough to sit there for hours on end. Ahh the joys of getting old. Now I just make cute cards and send out. I'm hoping this doesn't happen with Christmas! Sometimes decorating my tree can take a whole day and it seems like a lot of work when the kids come for one evening and that is about all the company we have. My husband still enjoys the tree so for now I will keep doing it.
How in the world did I get off onto Christmas....this is about this cute little Halloween Card I made. I have no idea where this little Owl stamp came from. I paid $1 for it, but there are no markings on it so I don't remember anything about it. Sorry about that. Anyway, I think he makes a really cute focal point on this card....don't you? I stamped him in black and used stickles to do his spots and his eyes. I then used some distress ink around the edges of the orange cardstock. Who would think a dollar stamp could bring so much joy. So the moral of my ramblings this morning is this.....look around and use what you have. Pinch those pennies until they squeal!
Well I have rambled right off the page this morning. Go forth and have a wonderful Friday and remember to take a moment and "Breathe".
