Happy Monday, Happy Columbus Day, Happy birthday......

Well, I think I'm *finally* on the mend!! Good grief, I recovered from having a baby faster than I recovered from this sickness I had last week!! I did finally go to the clinic on Thursday & they decided it was NOT a sinus infection like I had thought, but some virus that's going around that they said could last up to 2 weeks!! So....I left....medless except for some OTC stuff she gave me samples of. I guess I should be grateful mine only lasted a week!!

So, as long as I was vertical, I made a card last night. Yep, another Halloween card!!

The stamp is from Penny Black & I think I got it at a rummage sale at my LSS. I colored him with Copics....there was so little to color I figured I couldn't mess it up, lol. The papers are DCWV (orange matte), SU's Basic Black & the adorable paper with the spiders is from Recollections. I bought it at Michael's a few weeks ago when I thought I was never going to get my hands on the Eerie pad! I just couldn't cover up the spiders so the layout is pretty simple. The web in the corner is a Martha Stewart punch from last year, covered with Diamond Stickles. I used my Martha goo punch on the black strip, & added some punched flowers to the corner.

I also added Stickles to the stars on his hat, & used my clear Spica glitter pen for the moons.

Here's a pic of the inside.....the spider stamp came from Michael's & is also from Recollections. I knew it would come in handy for the insides of cards!!

***In other news.....7 Kids College Fund has some fun new stuff available for preorder!!! She has some adorable Stampavie Mo Manning stamps.....AND she will be carrying Cosmo Cricket kits & 6x6 pads!!! I'm so excited!! Of course, I just placed an order over the another will be going in soon!!

I want to wish all my US friends a Happy Columbus Day!!! How many of you lucky ducks are off of school & work?? My kids have school.....they're wondering why THEY don't get the day off like so many others, lol. But Matthew is actually fine with going to school today, because it's his birthday!!!!!!! I made him many many chocolate chip/butterscotch cookies yesterday to take as a treat so he was pretty excited. I asked him (sarcastically) if I should make him a crown to wear, & he said "I think Mr. Mueller [his teacher] has one for me." LOL!!!! At 11, I'm surprised that would be something he'd wear. But I guess it DOES let everyone know it's his birthday so they can fawn all over him =) Happy birthday baby!!! I can't believe it's been 11 years since I gave birth to my firstborn.......the one that didn't sleep through the night for the first YEAR!!!!! Maybe that's when my sleep issues started!! LOL!!



Enjoy your day all!! And thank you for being patient while I slowwwwwwly recovered! LOL!!

What a gorgeous card! Love that image and the flowers are a nice touch! I think we must have given birth to kids cut from the same cloth because mine didn't sleep for a year either! Now he's 13 and I practically have to flip the mattress to get him out of bed! :o)

Hi Michelle, hope you will feel 100% very soon.
I absolutely ADORE your card!! Isn't that dp just awesome?! Love the touch of purple on the hat - really sets the card off. And I LOVE the inside too. You're amazing how you just know how to "finish" a card off and how to balance out all the different elements (something I constantly struggle with!).
{Sigh} - I could look at yr cards all day! :-)
