It's finally the weekend! Agh! It's been such a long week here at the Reid house. Our little Emileigh (she's really 19, but I can pretend, right?? Good thing she doesn't read my blog!) came down with strep throat so we spent a few germ filled hours waiting at the emergency room to see a doctor who didn't even need to use the tongue depressor to see Em's swollen throat! So she's been recovering from that all week. At least it happened this week though, so she'll be healthy and able to start her first year of college next week! Did I say college?? Can that be right?? Like seriously, when did that happen?? I'm the mother of a college student. *looooooong silence* No. That's not acceptable. On to another subject before I tear up.....again.
This week's Krafty Challenge is from Kerry!!! She'd like us to use some office supplies on our creations......just in time for back to school! So pull out your staplers, hole punches, paper clips etc. and get krafty! You could win some new rubbah if you join us!!
I'm still in the Halloween mood and haven't yet used all my new stamps from the August release (which by the by, is all back in stock), so I pulled out the lovely Haunting Hilda!! Isn't she a cutie pie with her little batty friend??
I used my favourite papers from Echo Park and coloured her up with matching Copic markers. It's a regular A2 sized black card base with purple and green for matting. The sweet little sentiment comes with Hilda, so I stamped it and punched it out and then clipped it to the main layer with a library clip! I added some black ribbon across the middle and tied a little bow and lastly I made my own border at the bottom using tiny staples!! I FINALLY got to use my little stapler from Tim Holtz! (Bought it months ago and never used it! Ha!)
The Krafty Girls have some awesome cards to share with you for inspiration, so be sure to hop on over to the Krafty Challenge Blog to check them out! And don't forget, the August Gimme Kimmies Kits are only available for a few more days, so scoop them up before they are gone!
Happy kraftin'! And happy long weekend!
