Happy Halloween/Samhain! I can’t believe it’s here! Halloween 2011. I am so sad to say goodbye to this wonderful month. I am having some serious technical difficulties today, what with my main computer crapping our on us. Plus, the laptop I’m typing on could very well explode at any given moment. 😉 Add to that the lack of heat in my house today, and, well…things aren’t exactly going quite right at the moment. Originally, I was going to make a layout of me in my costume, since I wore it to Phoenix’s school the other day. But I couldn’t print b/c of the whole computer issue.
But on to what I did make for the last day of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. I figured I would make one more of those clean and simple cards (which I just learned was what CAS meant- I didn’t have a clue what it stood for!). Plus, today I am sharing my Simply Betty Stamps Secret Pumpkin gift. If you haven’t been following the story on what that is, click HERE. But before I show you the Great Pumpkin gift, let me show you my card.
This is yet another of those fabulous $1.00 Inkadinkado stamps. I smudged some Pumice Stone Distress Ink behind the tombstone, and inked the image with StazOn. I also used some Diamond Stickles as I did with the other 2 cards that had this vibe. I drew the border in with a watercolor marker.
I do wish the month had more than 31 days, as I had so many other projects I wanted to make and share with you. Bottles, more pendants, scrapbook pages. One thing is for sure, I will be making more Halloween projects soon. Hopefully next month! 🙂 I just can’t wait until next year to make more.
On to my Secret Pumpkin. My gift was from Rio, Betty’s daughter. And what a cool gift it was!
Check out this super cool bucket! All of those fabulous ribbons! The spooky paper! And what was inside??? My socks and TWIX! My absolute favorite candy bar!!! Yummy! There will be no sharing of the Twix bars. 😉
And here are the awesome socks Rio sent me. The picture is quite crooked, I know….that’s because Phoenix took it! Pardon my pants…they look silly around my thighs like that! A super HUGE thank you to Rio, I adore my bucket, my Twix and my socks! I will have that bucket out all year! Did I mention that she even stamped my name on to the lid? I’m sorry…I should have taken a pic of that too…my mind is a little blown right now from the ruckus here. Here is the list for today’s Secret Pumpkin Hop:
Yes, I did the makeup myself. Yes, I will be doing it again today. See the little blue rhinestones? The folks at Phoenix’s school really liked it. I hope you’ll be back when I make the scrapbook page. I already know what I’ll be doing for it. Now to fix that damn computer….
