Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween Everyone! I hope that today is a safe and happy holiday for you and your family! I really don't have anything interesting to show you today. For some reason yesterday I sat down and nothing would come out. All of my ideas were blank! I did make a couple of things, but they are not the greatest! I can say though that I got all the laundry cleaned, folded and put away! So at least I did do something.....

My hubby and I did go to Bi-Water farms yesterday afternoon. We went to pet and feed the animals, went on a hay ride and went thru their "haunted" house. It was not a totally wasted day. I did get a pumpkin there. Most of their pumpkins were too darn expensive! So we thought that we would leave there and go to the store. We went to 4 different places last night and not one store had pumpkins. I know, I waited too long to get one ~ it was my own fault. But I did get a cool one at the patch. I will take a picture and show you, it was too late last night to do that. It is a tall, skinny one with warts! It's so cool - I can't wait to carve it!
Ok - enough of that. Here's what I did yesterday.
I'm in a swap that I needed to make a card with a snowman or snow flakes. Something snowy. I just got this set from TAC and I love it, so of course I had to use it! The base is Real Red. I layered papers from TAC's Reese paper collection on it-don't you love that paper?? and Chocolate Chip cs. I then used my Mega and Giga Scallop Square punches for the image. I punched out a piece of Glorious Green to layer under the image.

The snowman is colored with pencils, gamsol and markers. You can't really tell in the picture but the background of the picture is done with stickles to make it look all glittery like snow. I used some organza ribbon on it and I was done. I think they turned out kinda cute.
I also pulled out an old SU! set called Times and Seasons. I thought that I might make a quick Thanksgiving card. Well, like I said earlier ~ I must have the dauber downs because it was not quick and it lacked imagination.

And for some reason my camera was not taking a good picture either. Everything glared. Hey! Maybe I need a new camera? Hell-o!! Hubby, Christmas is almost here Ü

I really love this old set. It's one of my favorites! Maybe because I love Fall, I don't know. And I love to watercolor it too! When I watercolor I take all my colors out at once. And I have a napkin ready to swipe the color off the brush and go to the next color.
When I watercolor I also don't like to color with the crayon and use the brush. I touch the brush to the crayon and use it like that. I do the same when I use my watercolor pencils. I touch the tip of the pencil with the brush and then go to the paper.

That way I feel like I have more control over the color. I'm sure that everyone has their own way of doing things ~ this is just the way that I do it.
Well - today I'm not even sure that I will get anything done - If I do I will be sure to post it.
Have a great Halloween! And be safe.
Hugs,
Joani
