MFT Sketch Challenge!!


We're off early this morning. After we drop the Emster off at school (she is feeling much better today, thanks!), Al and I are heading over to the Passport office in London to hand in our applications. Sheesh what an ordeal just to get our passports!! Photos...no smiling, no white shirts, no shiny faces, no shadows! Applications filled out....no mistakes, block letters, sign in the tiny box without touching the sides!! Get someone to vouch for ya...signature, address, how long have you known them, their passport registration number, favourite food, shoe size!! Okay so I MAY be exaggerating a tiny bit, but man, everything better be right when we get there!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyhooo! The lovely Frances has posted a great sketch in the MFT Forum today and I had a chance to play with it. I used Baby It's Cold Outside and my new Be Merry dp that I got from The Town Scrapper. I coloured her in with my Copic markers and added Crystal Stickles to the snow and Mr. Snowman. I added a strip of Pretty in Pink after embossing it with the Snowflake folder. The 'Joy' layer is a diecut and the velvet ribbon is some retired SU stuff. I added brads in the corners and to the snowman's buttons and pop dotted the main layer!! Yippeee...another Christmas card done!!




Well, tonight is my big 'do' at the library. It's called Ghouls Night Out and we have three amazing female authors coming for a reading and booksigning. I have been organizing this for months and tonight is the big night. These ladies write romance and mystery and drama with a paranormal flair....like vampires and werewolves! Heehee! It's a lot of fun and they are hilarious!!! I can't wait to meet them! I'm going in to work at 1pm to do all the decorating and running around, picking up stuff for the punch and all the yummy Halloween cuppycakes that I ordered.

I was able to get a bunch of big pumpkins donated to us and a bunch of coworkers have taken them home to carve and bring them back for decorations in the room. One of my coworkers has this awesome computer program where you can type any words in and it will make it into a pumpkin template. So she has carved three pumpkins, one with each of the authors' names on them! I think they are going to LOVE them!!! It's also a costume party with a prize for the winner!! Anyway, big day for me and as much as I'm lookin' forward to it, I'll be glad when it's over!! Wish me luck!!
