I have really been through the wringer in the sickness department! The cold/flu I got on September 23 lingered and lingered. Last Saturday I thought I was finally on the mend so went to a family funeral on Sunday--two hour drive each way plus time spent with family meant we got home about 8:30 pm. I was really feeling spent. Woke up Monday morning and was sick again (still?). Slept all day Monday and Tuesday so by Wednesday was finally feeling some better. Today I feel almost normal again! This was a long siege! I'm not making any promises, but hopefully I am back to blogging regularly again! I sure hope so!!!
While I was at my daughter's last month we made a lot of cards but I wanted to wait to show you this one till I knew the recipients had received theirs. Mieka helped us make this card that she got from Joan Robertson (link will take you to the video)! Halloween is not my thing but I couldn't resist making a few cutesy Halloween cards anyway! This one was labor intensive but oh so worth it! Thanks, Mieka for helping us make this adorable card!
I had the hardest time getting a good photograph of this card. I think I photographed this card more than any others I have ever made. I wish I lived closer to my niece...she is a professional photographer and I would have her photograph all my cards:) Alas, I will just need to hone my own skills. A new camera would help but since I have an iPhone on my wish list, the camera will have to wait! Makes me think of the song from Mama Mia, Money, Money, Money! Oh, "all the things I could do if I had a little Money":) Must be that ADD kicking in again...
I will let you get the list of supplies from Joan's video. I didn't have my Halloween paper so used some my daughter had bought at Joann's. The googly eyed creatures are a stamp set that was in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog last year called Googly Ghouls! I am not sure about the stamp I used on the inside.
