Last week would have been my Mom's 66th Birthday.
Kinda screwed up my week. I didn't even buy milk last week
cause the expiration date was her birth date. I know, lame.
But it's getting really rough around the holidays. Xmas was her favorite holiday.
She used to bake dozens of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies from scratch
every year. Besides her, I think I'll miss those cookies the most.
So to bring me out of my funkity funk, I have been coloring and trying
to create cool schtuffs. One of my recent highlights has been making a new
friend in Deb at Dragon Wings and Fairy Things. I have found a
kindred spirit in Deb. She has been a stalker of mine for a while now,
so I felt it was safer to befriend her, rather than getting a restraining order. LOL!
We decided to swap some RAK, and Deb spoiled me with so many cool
things, but the gem of the swap were some rubber stamps that I had been
coveting for over a year.
After receiving these insanely awesome stamps, I decided to try to track them down
here in the states (I thought they were only available in Canada). They are put out
They also had the best prices, too.
I just received the remaining four sets.
Flippin' awesome, huh?
I love them!! And I can't wait to ink them all up.
So far, I have only made two cards using the sets that Deb sent me.
My FIL had a birthday on Sunday.
I hope he didn't mind the RIP charm.
Argh! I just realized I forgot to add the pom pom
onto the end of his hat! I hate it when I do that.
This is a total foreign color scheme for me, but I think it
conveys a masculine birthday feel. Kinda circus-y, but it works.
Out of all of the sets, this little lady is my absolute favorite!
I just love her under bite!!!
Of course I decked her out in pink and sparkles. She is a bride after all.
Well, the pink actually has more to do with the sentiment.
Another great sentiment from Ginger's House.
I received some Frantage from Deb. I love the look of this stuff, but
I just don't know when to stop! Does anyone else have issues with the
paper/card stock warping from heat embossing? I had to mount this card
onto another card front, and weigh it down with heavy stuff to get it
to appear only slightly less wonky. This happens to me every time I heat emboss.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed my Zombie cards.
I had a blast making them. I hope to have more made very soon.
I'm seeing a Zombie in a Santa hat......
Keep it creepy!
