Hello all! Sorry it's been a few days since my last post.. too much to do lately! I just finished work - we had an Art Show featuring works created by some of my favourite senior peeps - I work at a Senior's Residence in the Recreation Department. They sure are a talented bunch... I'm so proud of the progression they have made over the past year. The show is also a great way to spark interest in new residents.
On Friday and Saturday Stampin' Up! had their first Fall Conference in Kitchener, ON. It was the first event that I've attended...it was full of fun and learning. Friday night was called a 'Product Playground' we got to make a fun project using the new 'Gift Box Punch Board'. I must say that after using this handy-dandy tool, I must have one now! Plus some prize patrols.. sadly I didn't win but it was still fun! Today we had another fun day with more stamping for a card and another cute box. They also gave us a stamp set for each event we attended - so I got two!!! Who doesn't love free stamps?! I love it!!!
Well today is actually World Card Making Day, did you know that? I said to myself that I simply must post a card - it's one of my favourites that I have created in the last little while! I just love the 'Tee-hee-hee' stamp set - not much of a surprise there since it's a Halloween set. I stamped the various sentiments in vertical and horizontal patterns, then added a few of the cute images to fill in some of the bare spaces. I matted it onto Basic Black, Basic Grey and Basic Black and matted onto a Whisper White card base. The sentiment I wanted to pop off a bit more was 'witching you a happy halloween' so I stamped it on vellum and cut out a rectangle and added it on top of my first stamped image. I finished by adding some Basic Black Baker's Twine, staples and a few randomly placed googly eyes.. just cause'. I'm so in love with how this card turned out!! It suits me to a 'tee'!!! hee-hee!!
I hope you found some time to make a card and celebrate World Card Making Day today!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
