Sorry I'm late gals, I COMPLETELY forgot about this last night and quickly uploaded the pic to a draft post hoping I would be able to get to it today, but no such luck. So now I have 20 minutes waiting for my cabbage rolls to heat up and I thought...GEEEEZE....I have NOT posted my card yet!

I totally blame it on the age thing...I think there might even be a name for it! It is called OLD! LOL!...actually I don't think of myself as old at all, but my memory and aches and pains remind me otherwise.

Before I start ANYTHING, I want to give a HUGE welcome back to Shannan Teubner. She was one of our original babes and I for one am more than thrilled to have her back. Check out her blog, if you haven't seen it already, and show her some love. WELCOME BACK SHANNAN we have missed you!!!!

AND, if you haven't already seen on Emily's blog, or in email, Stamping Bella is having a FREE shipping event with the coupon code freeshippingoctober on orders over $55. A perfect time to grab that Uptown Girl collection, come on...I KNOW you love them.

This week was our halloween challenge and although I don't really make halloween cards I did find something that was appropriate....monstah BASH. I even got a bit creative and added the Boo! with some quickutz alphabet dies and the Tim Holtz branch tree. Pretty clever I thought.

You just know that I stamed it on bella's BESTEST paper and coloured with copic markers. I did 'cheat' and add some shading to the beasts with some pencils though. Here is a list of those markers

BG70, 72, 75, 78, YG11, 23, 25, 67
R24, 37, 89, 39,  W1, 2, 4, 6

Next week we have a sketch challenge!!!! YAY, my FAV!!!! This one is a beauty with all those little details that I never think of adding so while it is fresh in my head I think I'll get on it as soon as I eat my cabbage rolls. I just took them out of the oven and they smell so yummy and delish, especially since it is cold and windy outside here in Chatham tonight. I actually had to turn the heat on for a bit just to get the chill out of the air.

LOVE the tree that you've added to your fabulous card! Great shading and what is that 'chunky' stuff at the bottom of your tree that looks like leaves? Very cool!

Pauline said...
