Happy Halloween

How did the end of the month get here so quickly?? I never really got to any Halloween cards other than the BAB. I have been working on a few items for a craft fair coming up at my school. I am also becoming a Big Shot junkie. Not only playing with it, watching videos on different projects which just add to my wish list....

I will post what I have been working on later this week.

Seasons Greeting

I have been dying to make on of these cards and thought it would be much harder than it actually was. The little deer stamps up so cute. It is a really basic stamp but can be made into so many cute things I think.
Here is the view from the other side. And finally a close up on the verse. If I remember correctly it was done with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip markers. Basically two tones of brown. I think this would be cute done in a red and green combination.

Trick or Treat or Should I Say " Drat that Demonstrator!!"

Isn't he just the cutest? I'm not sure if my demonstrator was giving me a treat or a trick! My mantra was I don't need the bears for my DD, I dont need the bears for my DD, I dont need the bears for my DD. Guess what is now on my wish list.

My demo also had a metal sheet framed with magnetic BABs in different outfits. Basically--- paperdolls. Drat that demo! I talked to the Grammie that is a stamper as well and we may go in on it together for Christmas. I will have to ask the other Grammie is she will buy some paper and the magnetic sheets. I guess it has been a good thing that the company I work for doing banquets has been busy-of course I havent saved a dime LOL!

Today is Columbus Day and DD is at daycare & I have the day off. I figure if I have to pay for it if she goes or not; she can go. Not only have I caught up on laundry but I installed my keyboard shelf to the bottom of my desk giving me a few more inches of work space. Then I worked on making my "punch book" which I have been wanting to do since this summer when Shelly Hopps
taught me her one of her many ideas. I also want to have an inventory since there are so many punch projects out there. Heather and Ellen are great sources for punch ideas along with so many others. A girl has to get the most from her punches!

My oldest son did it! He got his drivers license!!! We are so proud of him. Of course now he is completely independent. My little baby is a man-when did that happen?!?! (Dear Lord give me strength he brother is only a year behind)

Now I can just chillout for a little while. It had been a busy week. I worked until 10:00pm Friday, got up Saturday got three of my girlfriends-we went shopping etc then we went to our stamp club that I got to be the hostess. It was an awesome party!!! (lots of goodies coming my way and I will post photos of what we did later) Worked Sunday & Monday, picked ds up at the train station. Wednesday afternoon was his test-he was the last person taken out, the DMV actually closed before he was back from his road test. So we had to go back the next day to take his photo license. I was suppose to work this weekend as well at the college but dd woke up with a fever so we have both slept on and off today. I knew working two jobs & running the kids around was making me tired but I didnt realize how much until I got to sleep....

Ok so enough rambling and going on...
I will try to get the photos loaded this weekend.
