Trick or Treat!

I've been stamping again after almost five months! Sure is fun!!

I've spent the last couple of days stamping with friends and planning some classes for the near future.

The image I used today is a digi stamp from Hambo Stamps that I downloaded recently. I colored it with Copic markers, matted it with black card stock and attached it to a card. I stamped the Trick or Treat stamp from Michael's dollar bin after I colored the image.

The card body is a scrap of kraft card stock background stamped with Stampin' Up! retired Decorative Dot from 1997, a Cuttlebugged SU Eggplant Envy and a velvet rick rack ribbon from Clear Dollar Stamps. I used foam tape to pop the layer with the ribbon and the main image.

The picture above is the inside, the sentiment is retired SU Halloween Smiles 2003 and another dollar bin stamp from Michael's colored with Copic markers.

It's only a few weeks away from Halloween but the temperatures here are still near 100 in the daytime. I enjoy being able to open the windows and let the cool fresh air in but have to close up the house about noontime and turn the air conditioning back on. It shouldn't be too much longer...
