Frightful and Delightful

Hi Friends! I hope your having a great week! I've been  going through my scrapbook room and sorting and cleaning getting ready to take A LOT of my old things to a local scrapbook store to sell. There having a scrapbook yard sale and I bought 2 tables (8 feet) lol...Problem is it won't be enough. I have 6 years of accumulation :-)
 



 I received this Tim Holtz owl stamp and a wonderful Walter and Winnie Halloween stamp set to play with so I HAD to play with then right?  I water colored the background with some distress inks and gelatos and stamped the web,spiders, owl and sentiment. I love the eyes on the owl they look like lemon or orange slices lol
 

Well back to cleaning. My whole living room floor is covered in filled boxes of scrapbook supplies. And really what amazes me is it doesn't even look like I did anything in my room...Oh No :-)

I'm entering this in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge


and Darnell's



I'm submitting this to Darnell's NBUS challenge  (as Darnell  pointed out to Lisa, you can use new  Schtuff  to as it's never been used (Never occurred to me either Lisa :-)
 
Hugs, Char

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, you girls are too funny! It snot ANBUS for "ancient" never-before-used schtuff! lol! Just gotta be lika virgin, you know?! (Eew, doesn't ANBUS sound like a skin condition that you don't want to get near?!)

Your card is (I gotta say it) a HOOT!! Yes, indeed, those eyes are citrus slices!! Don't you want to go buy a bag of dried fruit and put some real dried lemon slices on the card?? Or is that just me?

Thank you so much for all the fun and for playing in my second NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

WOW Char what a fabulous Halloween card, that owl is awesome!! Not too spooky, but spooky enough! As far as the new NBUS...who knew!! I thought it was stuff we had hanging around for a long time and never used. But then again that would be new I suppose LOL!

Wonderful card, Char, love the owl! Hope you get rid of some of your stuff, but you know it is easier to start using it up! I am trying so hard to do that, unfortunately for me, I am overwhelmed with stuff! Happy Saturday!
