Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend

Hi all and thanks so much for stopping by! I finished off my circle journal (one day late) and did manage to remember to take photos of my pages before I mailed it off. I should be getting the next round in a week or so. I will be posting the photos of my CJ after I come back.

Come back from where you ask? I decided to go visit my parents this weekend as it’s the Cdn Thanksgiving. I wont be back until Monday or Tuesday… lol does that matter much since I probably wont even be posting until Wednesday?

Here are some Fall/Halloween cards to “tantalize” you during my absence 😉

I just love the new stamp release from Stampendous. I had to limit myself to one stamp from the Max line or else I would have scooped them all up! I followed the Splitcoast Stampers SC110 sketch and I’m really not sure if I like how the card turned out. I think the problem is the fact that I used muted earth colours instead of my usual brights. It’s something that I am still getting used to.

Stamps: Max & Pumpkins from Stampendous, “Happy Fall” sentiment from Michaels $1 stamps. Paper: Pebbles Inc pp, Bazzill and SU cs Ink: Basic Black, Chocolate Chip from SU Accessories: Bazzill wings and Prima flowers, Doodlebug brads, Prismacolor pencils

The image was sent to me from a fellow Shackie (Julie) and thank goodness too, I just put in an order before this was released… but it’s ok – I don’t make enough Halloween cards to justify this Bella.

Stamps: Witchybella from Stamping Bella, “Spooky Halloween” sentiment from Michaels $1 stamps, pumpkin stamp from Inkadinkado. Paper: Karen Foster pp, Bazzill cs. Ink: Basic Black from SU Accessories: organdy white dot ribbon, Doodlebug brads, circle punches, Prismacolor pencils

Thank you Nancy (another Shackie) who sent me a ton of adorable Penny Black images!

Stamps: Penny Black cat in pumpkin, CTMH alphabet stamps. Paper: Black Dots from K & Company, Spooktacular from Reminisce. Ink: Basic Black from SU Accessories: grosgrain ribbon from a share, $1 brad, corner rounder, staples, Prismacolor pencils blended w/ OMS.
