Monsters have invaded!

Ok so maybe they are just visiting. :) I'm speaking of Halloween monsters... These fun little stamps were designed by Nikki and I did the finishing touches on them. :) I hope you get a kick out of the cards I was able to make with them today. The stamp set will be released tomorrow over at Queen Kat Designs. It's our only Halloween theme set this year!This first card was made with the mummy in the set. I stamped him with a VERY metallic ink from CTMH that is now discontinued but I love!! and I highlighted it with gamsol and prisma pencil. It's really shiny in person. You can barely tell what it is in the next pic because of the reflection lol.
For the card above, I just pulled stuff from my stash and went to town. :) I actually used a piece of notbook paper from a REAL notebook I had. lol it's not a patterned paper. ooo not acid free... don't kill me k? :)To see the other cards I made today, please visit my gallery here. Blogger is not working for me today so I'm gonna stop here before I scrap this whole post. lol. Maybe it's mad cuz I don't care about acid or lignin free products. lol!! :) Happy Stamping

Ok.. So as you know I set out to make my own charm bracelet last night.. Well, I made the charms.. then I made a bracelet.. but the color of beads I had did not match my charms so I have charms and I have a bracelet. lol. I'm going to have to go to the *gasp* store to buy beads.. Yeah... shopping? oh no.. what's a girl to do though? she needs beads! lol.

I don't want to keep Nikki waiting. She's been buggin me all day to see these so here's my charms Nik...

I think I used 1/2 of the QKD stamps I own on these things! It took me forever to pick the ones I wanted out of my stash let alone stamp, color, poke and shrink them. lol. I think it will look hella cute when it's all together in a bracelet. I used my Giga sized scalloped punches for the shapes and they are just adorable. My grannie came over today and ooogled them. :) Guess a gift may be in the works lol.

Have you shrunk today?

OMG.. K.. my friend Nikki, she totally ROCKS my world! She used all QKD stamps to make this bracelet...
She's my scrappy HERO right now. I can't even tell you how much this girl means to me. She's one of my bestest friends ever. Come check out her blog.. it's awesome. Ok.. I'm headed down to my studio to attempt to make one of these puppies for myself. :) Thanks for the inspiration Nikki.

Well I actually got out of the house Labor day weekend. :) My friend Jamie and her family invited me on their camping trip it was so much fun. here's some pics I was able to snap off...

This is a pic of my truck n old ass trailer from a little distance. We were coming back from a little walk one morning and I snapped it.

This QT is Savannah.. She's Jamie's middle DD.

This is Aspen.. She's Jamie's youngest DD and boy is she full of it. Jamie taught her to come up to me and say "You wanna piece of me?" I cracked up so hard I about fell outta the trailer.

this is my little buddy, Alyssa. She's Jamie's oldest DD

this is Jamie and Elijah.. Cutest big boy in the world!!It was sooooo dirty. I don't think Bubba has ever been this dirty.. in fact I KNOW he hasn't!! He is supposed to be BLACK.. LOL

Poor Lucky.. Stuck outside of Jamie's trailer... Jamie felt sorry for him and let him in.. dirt and stink and all!! I couldn't believe it.
