a challenge....finally!

Do you ever just have one of those days??? 
This morning I was up before 6 am (yes AM) after telling my hubby last night that
I really wanted to sleep in..haha said the 4 legged hounds!  
After seeing my sister's projects I thought I'd better get my creative mind a going!  Once again, haha..a nap sounded better. 
However, I did still have a productive day, but once again my blog gets the last of my attention. 
I checked out several blogs for inspiration
and decided that Retro Sketches had a challenge that I needed to do.

October Afternoon is such pretty paper!

Happy Fall Ya'll

It's a beautiful fall day here in NW Arkansas!
I spent the morning outside with the hounds enjoying the warmth of the sun.  However, sneezing like crazy.
I did manage to get some playing around in the craftin' room done....
my little Halloween canvas.  I used Claudine Hellmuth's Studio multi-medium gloss with Adorn It Halloween paper.  The black bird is chipboard that I stamped with black then put Glossy accents on it.  Stamped happy halloween & bird with a fence on the lower right side, put a little orange string around it then painted the little stand.  I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
Whatcha think?

Missin' in action.....

Help.....I've fallin' & I can't seem to get back into 'blog-land'.  Wow I really can't believe it's been 3 months....don't ask because I can't even come up with a good excuse.  I guess with my step son's wedding, a friend's wedding, doggie classes and life in general, it just got put on the back burner.

I don't have any pictures of projects, however, I've been working on a few new things.  I made a couple pumpkins using a circle punch and a mini canvas.  Hoping that take two will work on the canvas...not too happy with the results of the first try.  Sooooo......since I remembered my password & how to type to post on my blog again.....I'll be back.
