Stamp Simply #104 - Halloween is Almost Here!!

A moment of rememberance for those who lost their lives on 9/11/2001. God Rest Your Souls ...


Today's Stamp Simply challenge over on Sharon Johnson's blog was all about Fall/Halloween! Here it is in Sharon's words:

Halloween is Almost Here! - Today’s challenge is to make a card or project
for Halloween, or perhaps a bag or container for treats! Anything
goes. And I realize some don’t care to do Halloween, and that’s just
fine — then just incorporate a pumpkin into your project! Everyone can
play, and we hope you do!!!

Since I had friends coming to "PLAY" today ... I made this card VERY quickly. So, it's a true STAMP SIMPLY creation. My main image is from the Crafty Secrets Halloween Cotton Scraps and the background paper is Debbie Mumm Harvest & Holiday designer paper. The orange satin ribbon is from Offray.


My friend Terri Snode was on vacation this week so we decided to "get together and play" ... so I put the word out to a few others and my daughter even took her "day off" and drove the hour to come play. We shared snacks, chocolate, techniques, stamped images and a lot of laughs! Terri got several cards created, while my daughter Carolyn learned a few coloring tips from Lana Edward. Friend Carol Smuts joined in on the fun today and shared several vintage images among other things. This time we decided to each bring "grab bag" gifts, drew names for the drawings ... another fun way to share!! In the grab-bag there were some really cool items ... stamp sets, stickers, ribbon, rubber wheels, holiday envelopes ... WOW!

It may have come together very quickly, but it is a scrumptious card! I love the vintage feel of the card. So glad you girls got to play today! I love your little goodie bag exchange!
