Because it's only a little over a week away, here's another Halloween card:
This card was also done by Randy Schoolcraft using stamps from My Paper Moon. Randy is a wonderful artist, don't you think?
The weather is still gorgeous. I think fall has finally arrived in Florida. At night I have the windows open and the cool breeze makes for wonderful sleeping weather. How's the weather where you live?
I'll post another Halloween card tomorrow. I hope one inspires you! Have a crafty day.

This card is on the homepage over at the Midwest Stampers Yahoo Group. It was an ATC I did for the Dark and Scary Night Trading Card Swap. Believe it or not, there are 5 stamps on this little card. Here's how I made it:
Using glossy cardstock, I stamped the skeleton sitting on the gravestone first. That also included the bats and the moon. Then I stamped the bare tree. After that I stamped the scaredy cat and Uncle Jumpy. I love Uncle Jumpy. He's so nervous about everything! He needed something else to be nervous about, so I stamped the raven stamp and then cut it out and placed it on Uncle Jumpy's hat with a pop dot. I colored the sky with markers, but they smeared and left lines. So, I painted the sky with Twinks, which also smeared, but when it finally dried it looked kind of cool, so I left it. I colored the grass with copic markers. Also the moon, and then put some stickles on it to give it that old harvest shine. All in all I was pleased with the way it turned out. All stamps are available at My Paper Moon.
I turned off my A/C at home, and I'm going outside and enjoy some more weather now. Hope you have a crafty day.

With Halloween approaching, I thought I'd share some cards with you. This card was made by Randy Schoolcraft, using stamps from My Paper Moon. That poor skeleton doesn't know what's about to hit him.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, because my hubby and I usually dress up. We start the planning process months in advance, and have been known to still be sewing right up to the start of the party we usually attend. We usually go as a pair, but last year I struck out on my own and went as Cruella DeVil. It was such fun. The year before we won 1st place as the Queen of Hearts and the Royal Jester. We don't have any plans to dress up this year, since we don't have a party to go to. So, I will have to revert back to my normal self, which is a pirate. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

Have you ever noticed that stampers have a language of their own? I was just looking at the previous paragraph, and in particular at the word "cuttlebugged" and it made me chuckle. Now, if I said I cuttlebugged a background to my husband, he would look at me with a blank look, but if I said the same thing to a stamper, they would know right away what I meant. What other words do we have that are our own language? Let's compile a list by leaving a comment.
Today the weather is cooperating with my body shop experience (they are painting my boo boo), so all is well.
I hope you have an inky day.

I added a few more blogs for you to check out to the right: Paper Friendly, Artistic Extras, Tip Junkie, and Free Collage. Check them out.
The weather here is looking like rain again today. This is not a good thing...I had a fender bender that I need to get repaired. Okay, I crunched the side of hubby's truck when I ran into my daughter's van. Remember that? It's been awhile. Anyway, hubby has been arguing with the insurance company, and I finally took it yesterday to be repaired. The body shop got the wrinkles out and was going to paint it today, but with the weather being so rainy and wet, we decided to paint it tomorrow. So, I am driving around with a truck with primer on it. At least it's not wrinkled any more.
