Another Simple Elegant Pumpkin Card...Day 30 0f 31 Days

Greetings! What a whirlwind of a day we had yesterday! As you know, it was my Anniversary (thank you so much for all of the well-wishes!), but what you may not know is that here in the North East, we had some pretty awful weather. Snow for one thing! In October? Unheard of! Many, many people without power and heat. We lost power twice yesterday. As a result, our main computer has frtized, and I'm not sure if it will work again. In addition, our oil burner isn't working. Thankfully, it should be fairly warm today. So I'm typing this up on our laptop, with no watermark (yikes!), and without Live Writer ( I hate typing directly into Blogger).
Because yesterday was so busy, I had to scurry and make a quickie card. I made it in a similar fashion to one I had shown you mid-month, because I loved how it turned out. And you all seemed to like it as well!

I put a smear of Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink where tyhe pumpkin would be, then stamped the image (Inkadinkado) on top with StazOn. I went around the edge of the card with a rub on from the now defunct Daisy D's. Lastly, I added some Diamond Sickles.

See the glittery goodness? Like I said, this was super easy, but I think that, because of the image, it's really quite elegant. I think I may make some packs of these and put them in my Etsy shop. By the way, the Anatomical Heart Pendant I made a couple of week's ago is available in my Etsy shop right now!
Aside from the gross weather yesterday, Gene and I had a wonderful time yesterday. It was so nice to reconnect a bit without the banter of children in the background. We did some of our old traditions, and just enjoyed each other's company. Again, thank you for your kind words yesterday. :) In answer to some of your questions, yes, it was a non-traditional wedding. It was a Pagan Handfasting Ceremony. And the theme was Medieval. Almost every person that attended was in costume. Including one of our photographers! It was magickal, and magnificent. Here's a pic from yesterday when we were leaving.

By the way, the crow that is atop one of the mirrors was a Halloween decoration...but we liked him so much, we keep him up all year. Edgar would be proud! :) We are off to a Halloween parade today. I can't beilieve the Big Day is tomorrow!!! Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Have a spook-tacular day!

That's a fabulous card - I do love that stamp. It's such a clean image and I really like how you smudge that bit of orange in there :-) The wedding sounds marvelous - would love to have seen that. !!!
Hope you don't get too bad trouble with that snow :-( xxxx

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga
