Good Thursday morning!  I hope y’all have had a good week so far.  I would tell you the story of what happened yesterday but . . . . I’m sure you would find it pretty boring.  Let’s put it this way . . . four of us went to get passports, two post offices later . . . . two got them, two did not.  Am I one who did?  Well of course not!  My certified birth certificate is no longer good for obtaining a passport (even though it says it is right there on the page) . . . so I’ll be delayed a month or so.  That’s okay, there is plenty of time to get my passport and to lose a few extra pounds.  My sister and I are calling it “Losin’ for Cruisin’!”

Enough about that  . . . but we are very excited.  All four of the adult children (and their spouses except for mine) are going on a 7-day cruise with the momma (step-momma for two of them).  See I can’t let it go . . . February is a way off!

Fast reverse to a few days ago in the studio.  Card making!  While at CHA I picked up a couple of Unity – Itty Bitty Stamps.  One of them was Halloween and since I’ve been in the mood to make Halloween cards recently, I couldn’t resist.

Here’s the outside:


The little ghost was colored with Copic Markers and then mounted on varying circle die templates from Spellbinders™.  The edges of the paper were distressed and then sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The border was made with 2 of the new Edgeabilities.  See that sentiment . . . How do GHOSTS like to dance? . . . well look at the inside


I LOVE it!

By the way, the seam binding was dyed with a mix of Dusty Concord and Sky Blue to get just the right shade of purple.

Well that’s it for today except . . . remember life is short, embrace the adventures of the day!

Thanks for stopping by!
