The challenge over at Gothic Arches is to create an arch and use text on it--my background paper has text printed on it, but it's too small to read-even with magnifying glasses, so I don't know what it says, but it's Halloween paper, so I thought it would work today! I had fun with several Halloween-themed stamps this time, too.
Happy Howl-O-Ween, everyone!!!!!

This week the theme over at TMTA is HALLOWEEN! Always a fun subject for me! And it's been so much fun to finally make an ATC, which I love to do and haven't had the chance in a long time . . . my daughter was in the hospital Monday and Tuesday, and I've been helping out with the grandchildren . . . it's been wonderful for me to have some of them here staying with us, and exhausting at the same time, with all that's been going on. I really enjoyed this challenge--the little girl and her witch hat on my ATC are from Paper Whimsy, and the wording and little skull are from Digital Collage Sheets. I used Stickles around the border, and the little sparkles on the hat, web, and spider, and the skull's eyes are from Stampendous. Finally, my spider web stamp is from from PSX (can be found at many scrapbooking stores and on the Internet); the spider stamp is from A Muse Artstamps. (Can't remember where the background papers are from--they were scraps I had in my scrap box. Have a great weekend, everyone!!!!!

Tag Tuesday Challenge-"Moon"

Squeaking by the deadline on this one--I keep thinking life will slow down some, but it keeps moving busily and quickly in my world right now--there will be a new challenge tomorrow, but, for now, Kard Krazy's challenge is to create a tag featuring the moon-one of my favorite subjects! My 2 images are from Paper Whimsy.

It feels so good to have found some time for creating-finally!!! The current theme over at Gothic Arches is "Jester"~the sweet image of the little children is from a collection I have on my Vintage Images, Volume 3 CD from Tuscan Rose. Wish the glitter showed up better in the photo--the arch is very sparkly in real life! You can get a better look if you click twice on the arch. The little caption is from an old children's book.

Teacup Tuesday

I apologize for the poor quality of the photos . . . the lighting inside my house is awful. Our home was a model, and the paint inside is rather dark, and as this is an "energy" home, all the lightbulbs (sockets, too, darn!) are those energy saving ones. I am all for saving energy and I am respectful of our planet, but, darn, I hate those things! They just aren't bright enough for anything! Anyway, I digress . . . I bought this little demitasse cup in an antique shop several years ago. It didn't come with a saucer, but I thought it was so pretty. It's Royal Doulton bone china, made in England, and that's basically all I know. I want to thank all the sweet ladies who commented on my teacup last week; hopefully I will get around to all of you to thank you personally--the past couple of months have just been crazy-busy around my house!
