Hi Stampers! The idea for today's card came from the peek-a-boo cards I featured in this post. I think this card turned out so cute. I admit that quite a few supplies used on this card have been retired, but I just couldn't help myself once the idea popped in my head. The spider image is from the set called Booglie Eyes. It is such a cute set. Unfortunately I couldn't find my wiggly eyes to adhere on. That would have even made the card better, but it's still adorable the way it is. The paper is from a few years back and I wish they would bring it back. It is my favorite of all the Halloween paper I have seen so far. I used the Silver Hodge Podge Hardware around the sentiment and added scallops and ribbon on the right hand side. I will definitely be making more of these in the future.

Anywho...back to stamping. I started out with a completely different vision in my head when I started this card. It is nothing like how I intended it, but I am totally happy with how it turned out. The pumpkin image is from a retired set which I am going to miss so much. I think this is one I will continue to hang on to even though it has been retired. It is called Carved and Candlelit. I stamped the pumpkin once, masked it and stamped 2 more times. Then I added the face to each, sponged Kiwi Kiss ink around the edges and added some black brads in the corners. This card uses a lot of dimensionals. Everything is popped up, including the base layer of close to cocoa. The bat background is from a retired set called at Halloween Backgrounds and the "Boo" saying is also from a retired set called Best Fiends. (Sorry I am still waiting for my new goodies to come from Stampin' Up! - I am trying patiently to wait and not stress but I ordered well over a week ago and it hasn't even gone into picking stage yet!!!)

Hi Stampers! With school starting here next week it seems our summer has come to an end. The boys are both very excited to be heading back to school this year which will hopefully make things that much easier when the alarm clock goes off on Monday morning! I can't believe that I have a freshman in the house now. Where has time gone? I feel so old!
DJ has been training so hard since we got back from Nationals. One of the local newspapers called and interviewed him & I last week and I was amazed at how the article turned out. The article was 3/4 of a full page!! Of course - proud mom had to run out and buy all the copies she could find! He will try out for the National Team September 5-7, 2008. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. To view a copy of the article click here.
Today's card hangs on to the summer feeling. I saw these card being made all over various blogs and decided it was finally time for me to make one of my own. We also made these at the last stamp-a-stack and the girls loved the idea. This would be a great card for a kids summer birthday party, a summer get together or even a family reunion invite.
