Mornin’ y’all – welcome to Tuesday. I’ve got no Finn pics today – we spent yesterday working and playing and I didn’t pull my camera out once! It’s hard to catch him on the move and he was doing a lot of moving!
We’ve started letting him off the leash a little more when we’re at the barn and down in the arena. He’s learning to follow or run ahead of the golf cart. He’s pretty cute – we’ll get done playing ball and head back to the house. When we get to the horse trough, he makes it quite obvious he’s going to leap off – so we stop. Pretty good people-trainer, huh? Then he puts his front paws on the side of the trough and drinks and drinks.
And then we’re allowed to go! 🙂
So, my card today is a Halloween card. Just in case you didn’t surmise that from the title of the post! And it’s a fast one – so it’s pretty perfect. I used the Spooky Fun stamp set, some Halloween Scenes Edgelits, and the Halloween Scares stamp set. Take a look-see:
I played along with two challenges on this one. The first, from The Paper Players, inspired the layout.
And the second is a photo inspiration challenge from Just Us Girls.
I started with a panel of Elegant Eggplant and stamped the black cat from the Halloween Scares stamp set all over it in Basic Black Archival Ink. Then I SNAILd it to a mat of Pumpkin Pie card stock. The next layer is a piece of Halloween Night DSP, SNAILd on Pumpkin Pie and then to the card front.
Next up is a harvest moon, cut with the Circles Layering Framelits from a piece of Crushed Curry card stock. I cut the black tree with the Halloween Scenes Edgelits and adhered it over the Crushed Curry moon with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue, then SNAILd it to the card front.
For my sentiment, I stamped Happy Halloween from the Spooky Fun stamp set in Elegant Eggplant on Whisper White and SNAILd it to a Pumpkin Pie mat. Then I popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped another Basic Black Archival Ink cat from Halloween Scares on Whisper White and fussy cut him. His tail was a little persnickety, but I held my tongue just right between my teeth (on the left side – not the right!) and got it done. Then I adhered him with a little Liquid Glue. The final touch was a few Silver stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.
On the inside, I stamped the moon from Spooky Fun in Crushed Curry on a Whisper White panel and then stamped the Spooky Fun sentiment over that in Elegant Eggplant. While I had the Elegant Eggplant out, I stamped a couple more cats in the corner.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Elegant Eggplant Spooky Fun cats across the front – and I added a strip of the Hallowen Night DSP, too – just for ducks…
Et Voila! Quick, easy and super spooky, right? I mean….black cats everywhere! Okay – I don’t really believe all that black cat hooey. Good thing since I’ve got two of them, huh!? But, they look good and spooky paired up with a craggy black Halloween Scenes tree in front of a harvest Halloween moon! Hope you like!
