10/31 Boo Birds


"Where have I been? That's the question I have been getting in my email inbox and in my messages for a couple of weeks! I haven't stopped creating, I have just hit the slow motion switch for a while. I have been on the go pretty much nonstop for the last two months, having a senior in high school and revamping our business is keeping me rather occupied! Add to that- my need to spend more time with my family, and friends, and to live a well rounded life,frankly it has left less time for the craftroom! That being said, I DO plan to get back into a regular crafty groove in the next few days!

 Let's start with a Spooky card inspired by this weeks mojo Monday sketch! I'm just loving these jailhouse looking birds....they are more funny than creepy so I stamped over them with a spiderweb to darken their spirits just a bit!


A lace doily spritzed with raven and jack-o-lantern glimmer mist and distressed edges on all of the layers add a look of  disheveled Halloween goodness! Do you just love the greeting? me too!!! Its from SRM stickers, and sooooo cute! This will be a fun card to send to my nephews with a little care package....because you know me {always a reason to send a gift}! 

Thanks for sticking with me, and to so many of you who checked in on me to make sure everything is okay, I appreciate your friendship and kindness and genuine care for me! * call me a little awestruck that you even noticed* ;)
happy creating~ hugs!
