I had a lot of fun again this morning turning another stamp set into one that I can cut out the shapes on Cricut and then stamp the images. It took less than an hour to do the entire set. But then I took a break from that (and from the marathon of BBQ Pitmasters that Matt is watching seeking some inspiration to use his new smoker) to whip up a card for Funky Card's September I Feel the Love Project. This is a great project and I encourage all of you out there to help out by making a Halloween card for these kids. The only caveat is not make it scary. So I had to stop and think: If Halloween isn't about scary, what it is about? Why, candy of course! So here's my card which I shamelessly scraplifted form Victoria Scraps who was following the sketch from Peachy Keen Challenge #58:
The paper is from Studio G. I bought this at JoAnn's a few weeks ago while out shopping with my mom and sister. We each bought a pack of the same paper. I found the coordinating ribbon at Walmart yesterday. I used the Stampin' Up Top Note die then embossed it with a Halloween folder I have from Sizzix. Then I embossed the word "Candy" from some little acrylic stamp set I bought (you know, those ones they sell for a $1 at the craft stores) and stamped and cut the Trick or Treat banner from a stamp set from Recollections I picked up at Michaels a few weeks ago. Fun stuff. Now I need to work on some birthday cards. There are sure a lot of them coming up.
But first I had better go fold the laundry since the dryer keeps buzzing. Why is it that it seems like I'm always doing laundry? Seriously, shouldn't there be some point where it's all done?
