Lisa Lee with Inchie Arts is very excited, and rightfully so! They have partnered up with Card Maker Magazine for a blog hop the other day. Here are two pieces from Michael Trent, who developed Stendoodling™. . .

Remember that little house kit from RubberMoon? Kim Fuller has completed her RubberMoon house. The embossing and texturizing techniques really add special touches to the house.

A short while ago, I discovered a terrific zentangle™ blog by Betsy Wilson. She is extremely artistic with her zentangles and I was very much impressed with how Betsy incorporated rubber stamp designs.

And while you're there, please be sure to scroll back through the older postings. Betsy's zentangle artistry is amazing.

Guess what's back! The umbrella design papers from Graphic 45's Raining Cats and Dogs collection. I saw the umbrella papers were gone so I ordered more.

I had time to make a quick Halloween card this afternoon before dinner. It was so easy to make with the latest Halloween die from PoppyStamps and the latest Cover-a-Card stamp from Impression Obsession.

Scary Background Die 1078 from PoppyStamps
Cover-A-Card Spider Web Stamp CC141 from Impression Obsession
IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko VersaFine Pigment Ink in Tuxedo Black

I cut the die 2 times using black card stock and red Mirricard card stock. The black card stock was cut to 4-1/4" wide by 5-1/2" top to bottom before die cutting. The lime Curious Metallic paper was cut to fit inside the die cut black card stock as a backing. I used a scrap piece of the red Mirricard with the background die because I only wanted two words from it.

Using the Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive fine-tipped point, the lime paper was adhered underneath the black die cut card stock, I inserted the red Mirricard die cut words "ghostly" and "wicked" into the appropriate spaces.

A pre-cut and scored cream colored card was used (5-inches wide by 6-1/2 inches top to bottom). I stamped the web background stamp onto the front. I then adhered the black die-cut to the center of the card with double-sided adhesive tape.

In a little less than 24 hours, I'm going to enjoy John Petersen's Piano-Hinged Colored Metal Book class at Art 'n Soul. Hope to see you there!

Susie, I cannot remember that long ago.
Is this what Burt looked like?
