ghostly greetings...

Remember to check out my Halloween blog candy HERE!!!


Hi guys,
     Can you believe I have another card of my Halloween series to share with you today?  I know right? 
Anyway, this is going to be uber quick as I just finished polishing my nails and they are slightly tacky and  I really don't want to redo them just because I couldn't type up this post without making it into a novel.  lol...
     So as you will see my card turned out a whole lot smaller than I thought it was going to be due to the fact that I didn't read the dimensions on a die that I purchased before I actually bought it.  :O(  Have you ever done that with a product?  Someone used it on a card or you found it online, and you  just had to have it and it was in no way even close to what you thought it was?  Well, this is mine for the year.  I really liked the idea of this die, but truly my whole card only measures 4 1/4 X3 1/4.  To me it is more like a note card. 
     I did have a great time taking this old Pumpkin Ian (digi) from The Greeting Farm and grabbing the jeans from Oh Boy Ian (you don't go trick or treating without a good pair of jeans on to keep you warm)  and paper piecing it all together.  I just love how sweet this Ian looks.  He really doesn't even seem to mind the little spider from FL's Heebie Jeebies set.  I then wanted to use some Stickles to help his web really show up. 
     I am really trying to get my hands on one the 'Wink Of Stella' by Zip's clear pens,  so that I can add that sparkle to my cards without all the chunkiness of Stickles.  As you can see I am not that great with it. 
     Ok guys,  I am ready to head to bed. So warn out as I have been up super late each night with my oldest M while he is working overtime on homework.  He doesn't like to be up by himself, so I sit in our very comfy chair and yawn the whole time trying not to fall asleep.  Poor kid everytime I yawn he stops what he is doing and says, "sorry Mom, almost done" .  I truly feel bad, but he so wants to get it all done.   Wish me luck tonight.  Not sure I will be able to stay awake.  lol...
     So, I hope you all have a great Wednesday and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

Sorry about the glare on the spider.  I used Glossy Accents on him and the flash must have caused it.

I always love how you mix and match your stamps, so darn creative! I love the glittery web too and if you can't get the wink of stella pen, try the gellyroll stardust in clear, it is amazing! I can get one of those for you btw, Michaels normally has them.

Sorry to hear about the disappointing size of that die. It's really cool looking but yea, I would have wanted it bigger too. Ian looks awesome with the addition of those jeans though and your coloring is so great!
I'm not sure it is the one you are looking for but I found this Wink of Stella pen over at Amazon...

and I'm pretty sure Jetpens.com has it too. Good luck on your pen search! :)
