Happy Fright Night

And a frightful night it was indeed. I don't know why I'm going to blog about this, but allow me to just free-flow-thought this. My ritual every night consists of dinner, sneak in a little computer time, and then tucking my kiddos in for bed. My husband puts baby bear to sleep in her crib while I tuck in our 5 year old son. The routine consists of tickles until he has to "pee in his pants," a brief chat about whatever's on his mind...it's usually consists of really weird questions, reminding him to behave and do his best at school tomorrow, and then sleep. And yes...I usually fall asleep with him..GO ME! Tonight was different, however...I had other things on my mind *cough* finishing this card *cough* and didn't want to fall asleep. So as I'm blissfully watching my son fall to his slumber, I see him proceed to slowly lift up his PJ pants with his left hand, and then quickly slide his right hand under. WHAAAT?!?! Already?!?!? Is there really a need to nestle those so early?! Needless to say, my blissful adoration of his innocence was quickly interrupted. I still love that boy though! :)



So this is another submission for the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. Ok, I tried to really stick more closely to the sketch, but I think I ventured further than the last one! I just HAVE to say that I had to use Shimmerz, once again, on my project. My fabric was stark white and I wanted it to be closer to black/gray. Here goes my handy dandy Shimmerz mini Spritz in Licorice ALL OVER! I also painted Vintage Wine on the skirt. Striking in person and a visual just for you!


All stamps used on this card are from Taylored Expressions...Punchy Potions AND Spooky Expressions and they coordinated PERFECTLY together! I did a little happy dance...oh yes I did. :)

Tomorrow is my Weight Watchers meeting. I've been at goal for a while now and I've already been to my October meeting for the month. Not going tomorrow though...and I'm gonna LIKE IT!
