Batty for You

Happy Saturday morning! (I'm putting on my happy face, I'm actually feeling quite grouchy!) I hope everyone has had a good week. I can't believe how fast the time is going, it's already been two weeks of school, and my *ss is dragging! lol!

I believe this may be my last stamped card to share if I don't get myself into that stamping room soon! (Well, I've been in there, but only to grade papers in the comfy chair!) I made this card back on August 17 when I stamped with my upline...I remember clearly because it's the ONLY card I managed to get made all day! And even then I had to fall back on a classic, simple design...the 3 circles/squares in a row...to even get one card made!

I think I mentioned before how Amy Yingling, concept artist at Stampin' Up!, showed us at Convention how to punch a small circle, then punch a slightly larger circle around the opening, to get a cool "circle ring." Inside the circle I used Batty for You and the "Boo" from Autumn Apparitions. A very simple card, but those little guys are so cute!

We'll be feeling very "Halloweeny" soon as tomorrow is my Halloween Stamp Camp. I have 9 or 10 coming, so lots of cutting of supplies and preparation today, but I'm really looking forward to it. I haven't had any *girlfriend* time for a couple of weeks now (which is probably contributing to my grouchiness!).

All right then, I best get myself moving so I can start checking things off my *to do list*. Crossing things off is the best part of the *to do list*, and the main reason I make the list. And I'm sure that you sometimes add things that weren't on the list...just so you can cross them out...too. I know I can't be the only one!

Recipe Stamps: Batty for You, Autumn Apparitions. Card Stock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Only Orange, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard. Ink: Staz-On Black. Accessories: 1 inch and 1 1/4 inch Circle Punch.
