A good friend

OK, I'm slacking a bit. I have a list of things to get done & have had no time to do them. Well, that's a lie. I've worked the last two days & have been BEAT by dinner time. Usually when I work, I stamp after my kids go to bed. But the last couple of days of work have worn me out, so I've just vegged in from of the tv. I've been working a lot with the special needs kids, something that is fun, yet challenging. And being a sub, I don't know these kids yet as well as I eventually hope to, & I sometimes struggle with the right thing to say & do. My over-40 brain & body are completely burned out by day's end!

Anyway, I haven't had time to create anything new so I thought I'd show you a Halloween card I made for my wonderful friend Dawn (flowergal36 on SCS). We met on SCS this past summer & became fast friends. She was the sender of the fabulous package of goodies I raved about HERE. So I made her this Halloween card:

She had really liked a card I made using this same image a few weeks before, so the very least I could do was make her one similar to that one. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with Colorbox black pigment ink, then embossed it with clear EP. I used my SU markers & blender pen to color it in. The designer paper is from Reminisce ~~ I bought it last year & have used almost every inch of it. Lots of embossing, Nesties & punches on this card, followed by my custom made pseudo Dew Drops (I used my 1/4" hole punch to punch green cardstock, then applied it to the bottoms ~ voila ~ matching Dew Drops).

I am so grateful I discovered SCS, because I have met some of the most amazing people there. Dawn, I treasure our friendship!! Thanks for all you have done for me!!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday night!! We had a brief showing of sun today, but now it is pouring ~ again. But that's ok because ER is on in 10 minutes & that is definitely a bright spot in my day!!!!

Fabulous autumnal card Michelle, I love the cutie image and all the texture, it's been the same here and normally I do some crafting at night but have also been too tired, I blame Danni as she's been off school all week. Hugs, Nikki x

love this cute PB Halloween cat image and your colours go so well together. And what a great tip for making the coordinating zooms - I'll try to remember that! I hope you get to rest over the weekend and recharge your batteries - they don't get much better over 50 either! hugs, annie x
