I love this witch! I wish I could tell you who made it… but it’s an unmounted/marked rubber…and I got it so long ago…. Anyway, This card features the Halloween Collection Glimmer Mist, and one of their new Glimmer Screens. The “Best Witches” s from a Cosmo Cricket stamp set.

I embossed the witch with Amazing Glaze to give her a glassy look. Click on any of my photos to enlarge them! Now for a memory…

This was a GREAT year! Here’s a quick story… I live right next door to my Mom. There’s a fence in between the 2 houses. We decided to put a hidden gate there, so that we could travel back and forth between houses through the back yard. So, on this particular year, I decided to make the most of this nifty little gate. I would answer my door before the kids would even get to the door. Sword swinging, and shouting “ARRRGGG!!!! Happy Halloween!” Now, you must imagine me doing this in my best pirate voice… They of course, would be startled. I’d give them their candy, blah, blah, blah and they would be on their way. Well, if they were going towards my Mom’s house, I wuld make a mad (and I mean MAD!) dash through my house, through my back yard, into my mom’s backyard, though her house and make it to the front door, only to repeat the greeting I just gave these very same kids not 2 minutes before! Now, of course I would be jumping out the door towards them, so the parents saw me the first time and laughed. The second time though…? They were a bit startled and QUITE confused! No one knew about the break in the gate! They had no idea how I did it! It was AMAZING!!!! The kids and parents were so creeped out! I LOVED that Halloween!!!!!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
