Happy Thursday, peeps!  It’s finally supposed to rain and cool things off today…I can’t wait!  This heat is wearing on me!  I channeled my inner Jen Mitchell and made a little Halloween card to take my mind off it:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Cheer All Year Gorgeous Grunge Halloween Stampin Up 2

I need more Halloween stamps like I need a hole in the head, but I just couldn’t resist the Cheer All Year set with its assortment of fall and winter images!  Who could be afraid of a polka-dotted bat?  Especially one with black rhinestone eyes?


I used the splotches from Gorgeous Grunge in Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie, Cameo Coral and Elegant Eggplant along with the sentiment from Cheer All Year in our new black ink:


I used the new Curvy Corner Trio punch for the lower right corner….isn’t it cool?  And my sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches:

And the inside, along with a sentiment from Howl-o-ween Treat:


Thanks for visiting today!

Playing with “kinetic” sand (this stuff is so weird!):





It’s a cake for Grampy!

Cute card, LeAnne! I love the polka dot bat. The heat is wearing on me too. It's raining in NY today, finally. The garden is happy for it.

Thankfully it is raining here too....although now it makes me very, very sleepy!
