HOLD ON TO YOUR PANTIES GIRLS - I STAMPED!!

Happy Monday all! I know it has been awhile since I posted anything creative, but the last 10 days were so much fun hanging out with my family. I am not sure how much stamping I will get done in the next month or so either because of the packout, move, and unpacking on the other end but I promise I will do the best I can. So, I actually DID stamp last night and I used a stamp that I found at Michaels (shhhh, don't tell anyone) and fell in love with because of it's coloring potential. All other products used are SU! though - promise! Anyways, here it is! I decided that I need to keep with my theme of fall and Halloween, especially since my new property is full of trees that are starting to turn all kinds of beautiful colors, and there is a crispness in the air that you just do not find here in Florida. In fact, it is still soooo very hot here!! But, I digress! I loved coloring this image because it provided me the opportunity to use several different shades of my Stampin Write Markers and I got to do a lot of shading. I love to color, it really relaxes me so this was a lot of fun! I love the way this card came out! I hope you do too!
