A Scary Halloween!

I took an adorable hAnglar and put him in a scary scene for Drew’s Halloween card. I love how it turned out. It was one of those cards I knew what I wanted. It just took some work figuring it all out.

Can’t you just see him pedaling like crazy to get away? All those bats swirling around his head! Just in case you didn’t happen to notice the name on the mailbox.

Drew likes reading Stephen King’s books. Me, not so much! I like to sleep at night!! Drew talked about going to  Bangor, ME to see his house but we didn’t. We should have since the Adirondack’s trip was a bust. It rained the WHOLE DAY. We hardly saw a thing! Anywho, King has an iron fence surrounding his property with bats and spider webs on it. Very cool! I figured what a perfect card to make for him with the reference to Stephen King.

Little Darlings Fall/Halloween Sneak Peek!

by Myrna

Here we are at my favorite time of year! I love Fall – all the beautiful earth colors and the warm days and cool evenings. Ahhhh, perfect! When you think of Fall you think of pumpkins! I fell in love with Autumn Friends right away. The 28th of September they will be at the Love to Stamp store.  You can also keep up with the new products by going to the Love to Stamp Store Blog. Don’t forget right now we have the Red/Brown Challenge going on at the Little Darlings Challenge Blog until the 27th of September.

You probably have never seen a cat on my blog. Ok, that’s a hangover from childhood. My sister Bev loves cats!! Me, not-so-much. She drug those cats/kittens everywhere. They rode in doll buggies, baskets on bicycles, wore clothes. You get the picture! The day cats and I parted company was the day mom discovered Bev BRUSHING THE CATS TEETH!!! My question has always been but to afraid to ask was, “WHOSE TOOTHBRUSH WAS SHE USING”????? If any of you are the youngest you know the grief heaped on us! 🙂 I think you know what I’m gettin at here. At this point I REALLY DO NOT want to know!!! As soon as I see a cat I still think toothbrush! LOL! If you haven’t figured it out the image also has a cat. So this is my first time coloring a cat and facing my phobia. 🙂

I just think this is such an adorable image. I can hear the cat purring.
