Thinking of You

Recently one of Haley's friends grandma passed away and I wanted to make a card for their family just to let them know we were thinking of them.  With it being fall I decided to use fall colors.  I haven't done much crafting in a while so I decided to go out to Splitcoast Stampers and see what I could find using a fun technique.  This card was made using 3 different fall colors of ink and a brayer.  First I rolled on the lightest color and covered the entire piece of cardstock, the medium color was next.  I rolled this color on leaving a little bit of the light color showing at the bottom.  Finally, I rolled on the dark color at the top.  Using the Upsy Daisy SU stamp set I stamped the daisys in Versamark and embossed them with white embossing powder!  I love the way this card turned out!

So friends, what are your Halloween plans?  Sidney is having a Halloween/Slumber party on Saturday.  We are going to carve pumpkins, play games, eat scary food and watch movies...sound like fun?  Sunday Haley has a costume party and Monday they are out of school for All Saints day so I took a day of vacation...sounds like I am going to need it after this weekend!  LOL!  I love it though...time flies so fast and they are grown before you know it!

By the way, everything turned out okay with Sidney's test.  They still don't know why she was doing what she did but at least there isn't anything scary going on, if you know what I mean.  Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers!

Take care of safe this weekend and don't eat too many treats!

Sweet card; love the color combo!!

Ladybug Crafts Ink - she's located "across the pond", BUT she has a coupon which runs through the end of November - so it would basically cover shipping costs - I can get the coupon code if you want it.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Kerry (the ownder of Ladybug Crafts Ink); she is one of my most favorite creative people I know - she's soooo talented, very funny and a ton of fun to work with. She's a gem at getting items shipped out quickly; I'm amazed how quick my stuff arrives. Their images really are fabulous - if you purchase, be sure to tell her I sent you!!

She's getting ready to release 5 new Nikki images; I've only seen 1, have no clue what the others will be, but you can see all of them on Tuesday, Nov. 2.

Hope all is well with you - hugs!!
