Is it Halloween already??

Because it sure feels like August here! It's only about 80 but boy, is it icky sticky humid!!

Finally had time to make a card after a very busy week. Michael's party on Friday was a huge success....the kids all left laughing & sweating & red in the face from running around, so they must have had fun :) Saturday was catch up/recuperation day & yesterday we visited my grandma, who is home again after yet another hospital visit.




I was stamping this cutie for a friend recently & realized I hadn't used her myself since....well probably this time last year!! She was my very first Magnolia.....and so it began....my addiction to these adorable stamps! You can find her HERE!!She's colored with Prismas & gamsol......I won't tell you HOW MANY TIMES I colored her, because I kept dropping things on the image *after* I had colored it. I paper pieced her dress with some paper from a Debbie Mumm pad I bought last year. The striped paper is from Reminisce....& the matting is SU's Basic Black & Pumpkin Pie. As you can see I used my new Martha web border punch :) I was actually wishing I had bought the pumpkin border punch....would have gone better with this card....but I wasn't about to run to Michael's to get it, lol. The web will have to do. Lots of Primas & leaves....some sewing....a cute glittery black spider (because all spiders shimmer, right?) & the finishing touch was a spritz of Caramel Apple Glimmer Mist. Ohhhhh.......how I *love* this color!! For the past year, the only GM I had was Iridescent Gold. Then I saw they were coming out with a bunch of Limited Edition colors for fall. LIMITED EDITION????? Does anyone know the shelf life of Glimmer Mist? Because I want to stock up!!! I must have this for the rest of my natural born stamping life!! It's just gorgeous!!



Here's a close up....not sure if you can see the Glimmer Mist or not....maybe if you click on the picture??

I didn't finish the inside yet.....I wanted to get this on my blog as quickly as I could since I hadn't posted for a few days....but I will finish it ASAP because I want to get it on Ebay by tomorrow. Halloween cards seem to be quite popular right now!! I tell ya, those buyers are more on the ball than I am!!



My shimmery spider :) Now who could be afraid of a spider that glimmers? LOL!

Thanks so much for visiting!! We only have 2 weeks of summer vacation left & we still have lots of stuff to do!! It's going to fly by......pretty soon it *will* be Halloween!!!

One of my favorite Tilda's, your card is so pretty Michelle! I almost bought that web punch, but I resisted, it looks great on your card. Not sure about the shelf life on that glimmer mist, but mine is a year old, I went to use it a few weeks ago and it wouldn't spray. :(
