Halloween Greetings!!

Yep... we're getting close to the time of goblins and witches!! I have always been a little partial to the Halloween holiday... always fun to dress up and "act out"!! Is the prelude to fall IMHO, not sure why but, it's the way it is at my house!! So, for this months' Waltzingmouse sketch challenge... had to use some Hallows' Eve stamps!! Ended up just using sentiments from Cicely At Halloween but, the images are "begging" to be inked up too!! And.... Clare has a few other fabulous Hallows Eve stamps {along with many others, I might add}, one just released, Hocus Pocus which is on its' way to my house!!
My card....


Let the paper do the talking here. Used MME Mischievous dp {that owl is adorable} and added black pearls for his eyes and some twinkles in the corner {a little night sky}. Sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white to make it "pop" on the black labels 18 nestie. The other sentiment was added to the inside.... it's a good one!!



















Is that paper not fabulous!!!! Today is Friday eve {as Amy Wanford, aka Aimes would say....I'm so looking forward to Friday so, that this is what popped in my mind!!}

Anya's sketch...


















TFL!! Love when you stop by and appreciate all the kind words!!

The 'boy" or "Bubba".... TMI, right!! Well, anywho, he took over going to the granite place and picking out the granite that will be used for our counter tops in the kitchen. I believe, it was a little bit of a project as  slabs are layered and they have to use some type of "mover" {the boy/manly man, hehehe, said forklift} with a claw at the top, beeps when you back up {okay don't know the name of the machine!!} to pick them up and move them so you can see each slab and he had to look at a couple groups but, found two slabs that were cut in sequence {seam thoughts} with no flaws!! ) Phew... counter template next Tuesday... cut granite and install!! Still need an upholsterer for some furniture and dining room chairs. Last night was all about the center pieces for the wedding tables and reviewing the list of wedding things to do... "have boys, I say, have boys!!!" Honestly, I talk too much... sorry!!

What a sweet creation, Vickie! I love that little owl with all of the adorable checkered and banner papers underneath. The buttons and twine are perfect, as is the sentiment you chose for the dressed up inside!
