Trick or Treat

Why yes it's Monday but I don't have a Christmas card for you! The challenge this week is to create a scene and for the life of me I just couldn't get anything to work that I was pleased with...so please forgive me. Go see all the wonderful creations on the Christmas Blog. For me though I have a Halloween card to share that I made last week for my Yahoo group. The sketch is from PageMaps.

I used some scrap paper (KI Memories) and my Justrite stamps for the sentiment. This weekend I organized all my Justrite stamps and realized I have quite a few. My good friend Danni, gave me the idea to have a stamp book with all my stamps. For some reason though I had never added my Justrite ones. So I did that and added a few new TAC stamps that I got a week or so ago. I have to tell you that making the stamp book in the beginning was a LONG BORING process but it is so worth it (if you have a ton of stamps like me!). I'm in the process of making a book of all my dies - I have so many Sizzix, Quickutz, Spellbinders and Cuttlebug that I forget what I have. Most of the time I just don' t use them because of it. By having the book on my desk, I would refer to it often.

Nothing really exciting happening this weekend. My evenings are pretty open (as of right now) but I do have a lot of creating and planning for upcoming FUNShops and crops. Hopefully my mojo will be in full swing and I can get a lot accomplished. Wish me luck!!

Thanks for stopping by - Don't forget about the blog candy I'm giving away. GO HERE...YOU NEED TO ENTER TO WIN!!!

Very cute! Love the colors! I often forget what I have of my die cuts too. A book sounds like a smart idea!

This is great! I used to have a stamp book, then stopped adding to it a few years ago, can't even imagine trying to make one now with all the million of stamps I have! Would be nice to know WHICH stamps I do have though! ;) Especially all the sentiments...maybe I should just do a sentiment one for now. TFS
