Let's scream it from the rooftops!

Here is a fun card I made using another great
Hambo image and sentiment.

I clear embossed the Hambo ghosts after I colored them
with Copics and then cut them out with Nesties.
I used a transparent stardust embossing powder and a
Versamark pen to do this.

The sentiment ended up being my favorite part of the card.
Once I had it colored, I used thick embossing powder,
and added a couple of layers of it before I cracked it.
Then I added a bit more Versamark from the pad this time,
and added more transparent stardust to the edges.
Nice, right?
Stop by Hambo and check out their new Christmas images and
fabulous sentiments.
They are still running that insane ribbon sale too!!

Okay, totally random but....

So, the other day I drove by a neighbor's yard sale
at least 4 times throughout the day.
Finally, I decided to stop and limit any purchases to the $6 in
my car's ashtray, a.k.a. my coin purse.
I located a box of old books and camped out for a few.

Loved the spine and the cover on this one at once,
and then the copyright
Nice. And sold! 
Cute and small. Besides, I liked the way it felt in my hand.
 Oh, and the copyright.
1867. Sold!

"How much?", I asked the lady at the yard sale.
"Fifty cents each".
There is something comforting and sacred about a book
that  is well over 100 years old.
Kinda afraid to actually smell  them though. 

That was a good day.
