I'm Bats About You !
Ok, enough about our weird little family. We had planned on getting up early and going over to the Twin Towers Memorial here in town, but Jerry informed me that no matter what he tried he could not get Madison or myself to get out of bed. Hmmmm.... So we decided after dinner that it had finally cooled down enough (84 degrees) and it would still be light out long enough so we went on our walk. It was so very peaceful and the flag was at half mass and there were candles and flowers there. We took a moment of silence for everyone then we said the Lords Prayer before heading back to our house. I am sorry to get too deep here on my blog, but I feel that it is important that our kids know the value of a person's life and the sacrifices that people make. Thank you for reading this long.
So, if you are still hanging around I will get to my card for today. I am not sure if I mentioned it last week, but I was one of Amy Young's candy winners from her newest Sweet November Stamps release. Well, I received my goodies in the mail on Friday so of course I just had to cut out Hilda and Vlad and color them up right away. I just love, love how adorable they both are. I love Hilda's huge eyes and Vlad's kind of lopsided eyes. lol.... They were so much fun to color and I thought well now that I had them colored up they need to be entered into something special just to show them. I got to looking around blog land and ran across the Deconstructing jen blog. I have never played on this site before and I loved the latest sketch # 18, so I thought that it would be great to give it a try with some of my new favorite stamps. lol... So here is my Deconstructing Sketch #18 entry. I hope you like it as much as I do. I wanted Hilda to look like she is kind of floating along with her little cauldron full of Who Knows What! Vlad on the other hand looks just a little concerned. If you noticed the little bat stick pin, it came along in the candy and so did the black rickrack. I sewed the rickrack into a flower and added one of the buttons that I also received. What can I say, I had so much fun making this card. If you have never seen any of Amy's Sweet November Stamps (and I can't imagine) you can check them out or just go ahead and purchase them over at All that Scraps. Thanks again Amy. I just love them both and I am going to have a great time coloring them...
Ok guys, I had better get myself to bed. Tomorrow is back to work and school for us all. Have a great day and I will talk at you tomorrow.
