Nothing Happened...

Remember, it's not too late to enter my Halloween Candy.  Clink here!

Hi guys,
     I hope that you all had a great weekend.  I am waiting until my oldest is done with his last minute notes and then I am headed off to bed. Until then though I wanted to share my card for the day with you all.
     So for my Halloween Card today I picked one of my favorite 'Sweet November Stamps'.  Let me introduce you to Hilda.  She comes in a set with her best friend, his name is Vlad and he is a really  adorable bat.  I did stamp and emboss him, but I ended up putting him away for another card.  While I was coloring Hilda I decided that her little bubbling cauldron looked like a little Witch that might have made a slight error in her potion.  To me that might account for those extra bubbles coming down the side her cauldren.  lol... Going with that idea I just had to use the saying 'Nothing Happened'.  This will always make me smile as my Son,  since he was old enough to talk and walk has been known to say just that,  It seems that  anytime we hear a bang or a crash around the house,  even now  at 16 when we all know that he has dropped the remote for the hundredth time he will say "Nothing happened"  it just cracks me up and has actually become a Gobea family joke. 
     Well, that gives you the back ground on my sentiment/greeting, but the real reason that I picked Hilda out of my stamp storage is because my friend and fellow blogger Amy Y.  is starting her 'Sweet November Stamps' preview in the morning and I just felt like using one of her sweet stamps too... I guess it is my own way of Celebrating yet another 'Sweet November Stamps' preview release with her.   So if for some reason you have in some weird way not seen or heard of Amy and her awesome stamps, be sure to head over to her blog and see her candy and new stamps.  I for one can not wait to see what new image she has come up with.
     Ok, Mitchell is finally calling it quits for the night, so I am off to dream land.  Tomorrow is another start to a long work week.  I hope you all have a great one and I will talk at you later. 
Hugs, Lisa G
