Happy, Happy Tuesday to you all! A cold front has blown thru here in Virginia and the weather is much cooler today :o( I have a feeling that winter is gonna be bad this year--ack! I do not like the cold, snow or ice or nasty wind--blech! Especially after Christmas is over with, it seems like winter just drags on and I'm ready for spring to come in January, LOL! But I'll just deal with it I guess--this weekend we're going to get mums and cornstalks for our front porch! I love decorating for fall and the week before Halloween our house turns into a haunted house with a fog machine, bwahahahahha! This is my daughter's last year of trick or treating (once high school starts that's it) so it will be semi-bittersweet! Her & her friends are going to be M&M's, lol--Riley of course wants to be a military guy again, no surprise there! Last year him and his best friend dressed up like 40's mobsters which was fun. Sometimes I'll dress up but usually I just say I'm Suzanne, the mom and papercrafter (maybe I'll stick some stamped images & paper scraps to my shirt, lol)! Anyone else dress up for Halloween?
New Elisabeth Bell AND Victoria Case Stamps for sale!!
This first stamp I'm using is by Victoria Case for SCACD and this set of 4 stamps is called the "Everyday Gals" and she's named after me, hee hee "Suzanne"--cuz' Susana says I love to shop (which, yes I do especially over the internet)!! I dressed her...ahem, me in my favorite color red and the fun dp is by Shabby Green Door "Farmers Market" . I colored "me" with copics and added some stickles to her totebag & shopping bag; diamond glaze to her boots & purse! This is how I dress when I shop mostly, bootcut jeans w/ high heeled boots or skinny jeans with ballet flats :o) The fun little sentiment is by Hannah Stamps! There are 4 of these "Everyday Girls" and they are a lil' bit bigger than the Bella stamps so they're easy to color & paper piece--they fit lots of fun occasions! Isn't she fun--love her!!
My second card uses one of the fabulous new Christmas/Holiday stamps by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD and this one is called "Two Turtle Doves" from the Special Edition Ornament Collection--see them all HERE! Now this image comes with a beautiful heart ornament around it, but I'm showing you the image without that so you have two ways to use this beautiful stamp! I paired her up with some beautiful new papers from SEI "Christmas Mint"--I love the soft past holiday colors. I added some stardust stickles to her skirt and holly for sparkle and then cut the image out with my Nestablities Labels 3. The snowflake border was done w/ my Martha Stewart punch here and those scrolls are also a punch here. I added some Kaiser pearls and the sheer ribbon was tied with my Bow Easy & topped with some Prima Poinsettia flowers & holly! These images are all just gorgeous & so perfect for the upcoming holiday!
