Toad-ally Cute Halloween with Viva Las Vegastamps!

Woohoo it's day 6!

Your challenge for today is to  COLLECT THE LETTERS and email DeeDee and tell her the word that the letters spell.
My letter is "R"
Isn't that fun!! :)
I have a cute card to share with you today. It uses this stamp. It's called Frog O'Lantern. It's so cute!!!
And the tombstone stamp from plate 1433

To do the sky background, I punched a paper cloud using the Fiskars cloud punch, and inked around is using Distress Ink.  The ground is also Distress Ink. The tombstones were stamped with Archival Ink. Stamped once, then stamped again WITHOUT re-inking, to get that look like they are back in the distance.
 And, here's your wiener! Sammy, singing his little heart out.

Hello, my lovelies!
The Design Team with Viva Las Vegastamps thought it would be fun to to a  Halloween blog hop. And, being that Halloween is my FAVORITE, I jumped right on that, baby!!!
Join us September 23 (which just happens to be my birthday! woot!) through September 29th to see lots of fun Halloween goodness!
You're going to hop around the blogs, comment, follow us, and all that good stuff.

Today's fun thing to do (along with the commenting, etc):
Visit Viva Las Vegas on Facebook,  and tell us what your favorite VLVS  HALLOWEEN  image is!!
I will have a new card for you each day. Most of these cards will be used for party invites- my bestie and I are throwing a Halloween bash this year!
The stamp I used for this card came from this plate.
Personally, I think you need the whole plate!! Plates of rubber are such a great deal, and I have used EVERY stamp off of this plate so far!!
But, if you insist on only this little cutie,
You can find her here....
I used paper from We R Memo…

Doodling the Weekend Away

Image
I'm out of town for my birthday weekend with my bestie at a scrapbooking retreat.  We've been having a blast so far!!
I've got a good start on the kids' 8x8 scrapbooks for next year's Disney trip (5 albums!! YES, 5! My three kids, my niece, and my nephew).
We caught a humming bird. Yep, you read that right. Friend caught the poor little thing. She was inside all day and they couldn't get her out. She was tiring out.
I've done a few Disney layouts from the trip we took in August.
I've played in the art journals.
And today I'm working on Halloween party invitations! WOOHOO!!
I spent some time doodling last night, and playing with watercolors. Yes, these look like a 12 year old drew them, but they are fun!
