I'll be off to enjoy the holiday weekend in a few minutes, but I wanted to leave you with a picture of my Halloween BOO Box. We'll be making this and a bunch of creepy tags on Sunday, September 14 at Create It Crafts.

Long weekend

I'm sooooo looking forward to this long weekend! I'll probably spend it unpacking boxes in my new apartment. There are still a lot of boxes to go through and organize, but I might even have some time to actually decorate. I'm not really looking forward to all this work, but I love that sense of accomplishment when its done.
I hope I'll also have some time to get crafty (you know that area is already set up!). In the meantime, here's a card I made for my Halloween class at Angela's Happy Stamper on Sunday, September 7.

More Halloween Fun

This new magician reminds me of "you know who" so I decided to use him along with the new candelabra to "re-create" the dining hall scene at Hogwarts. I masked off the bottom of the candelabra and (hopefully) they look like they're floating in the air. It's a little hard to see in this picture, but I made little dots in the candle flames with a gold stardust pen. It gives the flame a little extra glow. The Spica gold pen would work great too, but I couldn't find mine after my move. I'm thinking this might be a cute invitation for a child's party!

Want a peek?

Go to the A Muse website and you'll see a card I made! I'm loving the new Halloween images. I wish I could say I've been busy creating tons of cards, but I moved this week (bad timing, eh?) and just haven't had a lot of time. I'm glad I had a chance to make at least one card before all the moving mayhem!

Wouldn't it be great?

Wouldn't it be great if there was a candy store on every corner? Candy just makes me smile and that's when I know "life is good."

Dog Days

We are officially in the "Dog Days" of summer. It's been hot and humid all week, and guess what? It's going to be worse next week!

Here's a card that I hope will cool you off. A while ago Linda made a card with the upside down scallop and several different papers for water. Here's my take on that same idea. You can't see it in this picture, but each "wave" is really a pocket. I only adhered the papers on the bottom and side edges. The mermaid is attached to a strip of cardstock so you can move her around. I wish I was that mermaid!

BTW...This card is featured in my H2O class at Create It Crafts on Sunday, August 17.
