MONDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE AT STAMPIN CONNECTION!

Hi All!!! WOW! What a busy weekend it was - I taught class Friday night, had my Open House on Saturday, and my son came home from college yesterday - WHOOHOOOO!!! Needless to say, I did not have much time for stamping (except for what was needed) but I did manage to get the sketch challenge done for this week and I am glad I did because my team-mate Liz did a fabulous sketch!! With all the Halloween and Christmas stuff coming out lately and with all the fun demonstrations at Convention, I have been in the mood for stamping Halloween so that is what I did for the sketch!  I used the set called Wicked Cool - and yes, I bought it for the shoes, LOL!!! It is such a fun set, there is so many ideas I have spinning in my head to do with these cute stamps!  I also used the Sweet and Sour Specialty paper, I just love those polka dots and they are great Halloween colors!  And, I could not resist stamping the sentiment and punching it out with the new Bat Punch!  Sooooo cute!!!  If you are interested in purchasing any of these items, please check out my online store, they are located in the main catalog!  This is a pretty simple card, but I am happy with it - although my daughter came in, saw it, and says, "well, it's not your best card, but I like it"....hmmmmm....so, how does a mom take that, LOL!???  I hope YOU like it anyway! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, please leave a comment so I know you were here.  I am so happy, I actually have time to blurf today, something I have been looking forward to :-)  I WILL be back tomorrow with my class project from last Friday night, it is one I am especially proud of and I can't wait to show you! Until then, happy stampin'!
