Today's card is, big surprise, Halloween themed! I had colored Vampire Pumpkin from Saturated Canary last night and decided to make him into a card for Kayne's day care provider. I used my Copics, of course, and then fussy cut the image. I experimented a bit with his skin tone and I like the way it turned out. I also added some glossy accents to his eyes. The sketch is the current The Deconstructed Sketch (DS121). Papers are My Mind's Eye Haunted. I embellished with a few items from my stash- a metal swirl, a Recollections sticker, a piece of grosgrain ribbon, and a Martha Stewart spider web border punch.
I almost didn't have this post ready in time as I have been furiously cleaning since I got home from work. I have company coming over tomorrow evening and the ol' apartment was in need of some serious TLC! Cleaning is not usually top of the list of priorities when I have things like spending time with Kayne and crafting on it too! But I think it's presentable now (except for our craft/play room which is beyond help and needs a major overhaul! lol). I am really looking forward to my girls' night in with two of my best friends. We are going to do Chinese take-out and rent Beautiful Creatures! I read the books this Summer and am really looking forward to seeing how the movie compares. I will also be picking up some gourmet cupcakes for desert from CocoBeni Confections. It's been a while since I've entertained so I'm really looking forward to it!
I still have another card to make before I can go to bed so it's back to the craft room for me! Hope your week is rolling along wonderfully and that you have fabulous plans for your weekend!
