Scary...

...when you start to use craft supplies as your first line of home repair product options. Our wallpaper was starting to come off in a little area, so I stuck a glue dot on that stinker and viola! Fixed!

Now, if only there was something I could use to stop the kids from bickering...school starts in 82 hours...but who is counting? :)

Speaking of scary things...I just had to use this stamp for the Bellarific Friday Sketch this week! Don't you just love this little Beware house??!! It was part of the new releases and I had to have it! You can't really see it, but I put stickles and liquid glass in the windows.

And the sketch:

Stamps: Beware House (Stamping Bella), sentiment October Word Puzzle (CTMH)
Paper: Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Lovely Lilac, PTI White, Creative Memories Halloween patterned paper
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Cats Eye charcoal for distressing
Accessories: SU Ribbon, Kaiser Pearls, Stickles and Liquid Glass in the windows, Cuttlebug Spiderweb Embossing Folder



Paper Challenge Update: 49/100 projects complete!

I know...only one more project than the last time...sad, sad progress, but I have been a little preoccupied. I will post about it later, but I kind of found a new hobby that has been stealing me away from the craft table! I know, I feel as if I have a mistress or something! Don't look down on me! LOL

As always, thanks for taking the time to visit my little piece of cyberspace!

That looks fantastic. I love the spiderweb. I've always had a fascination for spiderwebs. :) BTW - I've used my ZipDry glue on virtually anything that needs glueing - not just crafts.

This is too doggone cute! I love it. I made a Halloween card last week and thought it was too soon but I am right on time. Isn't this FUN!

Cute! Love the house, the sketch you used and your color combos.

And my project count is now 17! Funny, I only remember that when I am logged into your blog.

And school here started yesterday . . . not that I was counting the hours here, nope, not me.

This is such a darling card! Great job with the sketch...that spiderweb texture is perfect! I don't usually make Halloween cards but if I did I would be buying that house stamp in a heartbeat!

gale said...

That's a cute stamp and I love the card! I am dying of curiosity to know what your new hobby is!

Gina said...

82 hours, huh? Too funny, can't wait to see your new craft/hobby.

Stephanie said...

oh your home repair method made me laugh and think of when my college roommates & I patched nail holes with toothpaste tinted with foundation (makeup) to ensure a full return of our deposit - it worked!!

Love the card and seeing all your Bella goodies - I still have 2 thank I got this summer & haven't inked up yet!! Good luck surviving (uhhhh...I mean enjoying) the next 82 hours :)

Grace said...

Love your card.... love the story! Glue dots are the crafter's version of duct tape!!! Fixes everything! Hope you enjoy your quite time when the kiddos go back to school!

Kay said...

I love it! The stamp is just adorable and I can see why you had to have it, but I really, really love what you did with the CB folder. I had to have that last year and have never really been happy with anything I've made with it, so I forsee some CASEing in my future :)

I LOVE this! Your stamping is beautiful, as always. That is too funny that you used a glue dot for the wallpaper, lol! Can't wait to hear what your new hobby is!

Karen said...

I just love that Cuttlebug spider web! And that house is perfect....you are getting me in the mood for some Halloween fun! :> I've left an award for you on my blog. :>

Too cute! My kids are bickering like crazy this week too. It must be something in the air. Thank goodness school starts on Monday! One of my friends said I'd miss them, but I said no way, that I was going to enjoy every minute of peace and quiet. LOL

Scary (the card that is). Home repairs and kids' bickering are another story altogether. This is a very clever card and I hope your "new" hobby doesn't consume all of your time -- we want to see more of your creations! I've left you something on my blog.

I love this card! Great image and colors and I love the webby sections.

Traci said...

Cute card! I love the spiderweb panels and that image is too cute! I will have to go check out their new releases!

Naomi said...

Ok, now I LOVE this Halloween card! It's incredible. And you know what??? We use Sticky Strip and Glue Dots to repair a LOT of things around here...would never tell a Realtor that upon selling...LOL!!! My husband has actually started requesting my supplies to fix his toy helicopters and such!

Dell said...

I love this image! What a great Halloween card. Too funny about using craft supplies for home repairs. I find myself doing that too.

Teresa Jenkins said...

Super cute! Love the stamp/coloring/ and web! love it all!!!!

CathyRose said...

This is so cute! What a great idea to use the liquid glass for the windows. As for the glue dots, it doesn't seem strange to me, lol!

Spooktacular card!! Love this one!

Jess said...

Yes.. it is scary.. I let John use my Crop-a-dile 2 for making holes in the materials for the awning we have outside. Too funny and scary.
