Hurricane Sandy

Happy Monday, Friends!  Hurricane Sandy has arrived in New England.  Thankfully, we still have electricity.  Schools are closed and the wind in really picking up right now.  We were supposed to have Pumpkin Math at school today, but that will have to wait for another day.  I hope that you and yours are all safe and sound.  I took advantage of my day off and made a card for my big brother's birthday.  He loves boats and the sea, so I knew that this set would be perfect for him.  The main image is from the My Favorite Things Inspired By-Sea set.  I inked it up in navy ink and used Nestabilities to cut it out.  I also used the My Favorite Things Die-namics Sea Charms.  The kraft buttons are from My Favorite Things too.  All of the papers are from My Mind's Eye.  I used the last sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club for the layout.  Part of the tree in the front yard just broke off, so I am going to go now.  Thanks for stopping by for a visit.  Stay safe. Until next time...Toodles!  :D

I Stamped!!!

Hello Friends!  I hope that you are well.  I managed to squeeze in a little bit of stamping time this afternoon.  A friend of mine needed some thank you cards, so this is one of the designs that I came up with.  I used Jen Del Muro's October Sketch For You To Try for the layout.  As much as I tried to stick to the sketch, I ended up replacing the two tilted panels with two Kraft colored buttons from My Favorite Things.  This sweet little mouse is from Stampavie.  I colored him up with Copic Markers (B00, B12, B95, B97, B99, E25, E29, E30, E31, E33, E35, R20, YG63, YG67, YR00, YR15, YR18, and the Colorless Blender) and I then I fussy cut him out.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and all of the papers are from My Mind's Eye.  The orange pieces were made with the Fishtail Flag STAX Die-namics from My Favorite Things.
Things continue to be very busy for us, but they are all good.  I have been planning a Pumpkin Math event for all of the first graders at school.  It will be this Monday afternoon and I am hoping that everything goes according to plan.  I have always been a "Nervous Nellie" and seeing that I'm new to the building, I'm praying that it all goes well.  Either way, the children will have a ball with all of the pumpkin activities, and at the end of the day, that is really all that matters to me!
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
