Googly Ghouls - I Love My Mummy !!

Hey Stampers !!

Happy Friday !! It seems like every time I turn around lately, it's Friday again (not that I'm complaining ... hahaha)!! I am so excited for this weekend !! My hubby and I will be doing some small jobs around the house, and working on my home always makes me happy !! Not sure what else we will be up to, but I'm sure it will be fun ... maybe a fire in the back yard !! Nothing like a backyard bonfire in the fall, right ??

My card today is a Hallowe'en card ! My birthday is Hallowe'en, so I always love ANYTHING in that fun theme. Yet, I didn't purchase the Googly Ghouls stamp set !! I must have been crazy not too, cause it's SO cute !! Luckily, my sister-in-law just purchased it ... so that means I get to play with it anyways !! Hahahaha. I have borrowed it from her so expect to see a few projects using this fun set over then next couple weeks !! My card todays uses my fav image from that set, the "too cute to spook" little mummy !! Have a look !!


Isn't he the cutest little thing ever ?!? I cased this card from Christine Luce, as seen over on Kriss Huels blog (www.stampwithkriss.com). Thanks for the ideas Christine !! First I stamped that mummy using Jet Black StazOn onto Whisper White an used my Labels Collection framelits to die cut him out. I stamped the Happy halloween from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in StazOn as well onto Pumpkin Pie and then die cut that piece out using the Bitty Banners framelits. Love how the Teeny Tiny Wishes goes so well with those framelits !! Instant fun sentiment !! Awesome. And the mummy's little heart was punched from the Owl Builder punch. Awwwww. LOL

The main card image is using the Scallop Square Clear Bigz Die. This fun shape still fits in a regular Medium envelope, so I love that !! Then I made a 3-3/4" Square card and adhered it right to the scallop, after I ran the front of it through the Big Shot using my Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. The little banner embellishment on the corner uses Pumpkin Pie and Lucky Limeade DSP from the color collections stacks, along with a little bow ties with the Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. Sweet isn't it ??

Thanks for dropping by today !! I think this card would be so adorable to give to a special kid (or kid at heart) in your life !! If you want to purchase these items, drop by my online store (link on the right)!! Thanks for dropping by, have a great weekend and Happy Stamping !!
