PDD friday! Sweet Dreamers: challenge 8

oh MY –  TGIF!!!!  what a rough week i have had!  hubby actually got to COME HOME at a normal hour last night and was even here to eat dinner with us.  which was good since pezzy was missing him SO much.  at one point she told me here baby footies were crying for daddy 😦

i have heard rumors that some stores are beginning to receive their tim holtz ideology orders so i am hopeful mine will arrive soon and then go right back out to y’all!

all distress stickles and rock candy crackle has been sent

MOST of the studio G has been sent with a few exceptions – i will finish sorting through that soon i hope!

scallop nestie stamps and several of the skittle bug skittles are still out of stock but should be here soon.

as for my project today it is a super quick but way cool one for Pezadoodle Designs friday AND my Sweet Dreamers blog group challenge this week.  we had to make a card that was only black n white.  all that came to mind for days was a wedding card but i am not real into making wedding cards…..then this occurred to me:


DUH!!!!!  how perfect are those little scary skittle critters!!!  hahahhahahha – i love those eyeball skittles they just crack me up!  a zillion years ago when catherine first showed me them back when we painted these ourselves they immediately became my favorite ones!  i pulled out one of my halloween CB folders from last year that did not get nearly enough use to give some fun detail to the card base (and resisted the temptation to ink it as i love when folks leave them white but i swear i just can’t hardly do it…)

SD8 close up

i used brilliance starlight black to stamp with and ink the edges which gives it a bit of a silver metallic shimmer in the black.

This set comes with a total of 3 bats and 3 spiders and the skittles have the signature glitter inside.

i hope to have a day around the house so i can get stuff done – i wanted to go out to this nearby farm with tons of fun kid stuff but it is wet and rainy and soggy here so none of that!

be sure and stop by and see what the other girls in the playgroup have up today as well as checking out the other black and white creations in the sweet dreamers group!  i hope to do some leisurely blog hopping myself as i am behind on EVERY blog i love!


so glad you stopped by!
