And Another Take On Page Plans....

Wednesday...hump day! I can't believe it's the middle of the week already! Where does the time go!?

So how fab is this weeks Page Plans sketch! You know I love it! Well this week I made a second card. I will warn, not that it will burn your corneas...;) ...but that it will make you wonder what month it is! :)
I have this really cool stamp set that I purchased so long ago I can't even remember! I bought it because it was just the cutest thing ever! The that point I hated to color! ...Anything! When I bought this set I wanted one step stamping but it was so stinkin cute I couldn't resist! Now I am a color junky! ...which makes me oh so happy I still have this set! ...and now it's finally mounted and used! Just wait till Halloween rolls around! I have big ideas for this set! ;)

Meanwhile...let's have a little Halloween in April...hey...I've shared my photo of Donna and Heads Up Harry haven't I? If you weren't around then you have to check out this post if you have a chance....look'll find a picture of both Harry & Donna at this post. I will share that on our street we have a little contest with the neighbors to see who can have the scariest house. This year, we added Donna and Harry to our collection...yeah....I think it put us over the top! ...all of the little kids said so anyway...hey...I scare faster than they do! ;) I also had a great time scaring my husband with Donna. She's really creepy! one night when he was getting home from a trip I snuck her into our room...Yeah...he screamed when he got up to go to the bathroom that night! It was totally worth waking the baby up!

Ok...this post is telling more about myself than I probably should! ...It was hysterical though! We still talk about it! I think the funniest part is that I was able to get him with her more than once! We store her in the storage room in the dh's defense she is really creepy! I had to cover her up because it's shocking to walk in and see her there. I keep waiting for him to get her out of storage and get me back...Let's just hope he doesn't! Can we all say heart attack!

Back to the card....this is from the Best Friends stamp set from Stampin UP. It really has been such a long time ago...I can't even remember when this was offered! it is....

Ok...first...I am such a huge addict....newly for sure...of sewing on cards! I have been faux stitching for such a long time but there is such a huge difference when you really sew on a card. Well...I don't have that Jenome mini sewing machine so I still have to pull my huge! machine out everytime I want to stitch and it has been just about everytime I make a card lately! How about that crazy stitch! I loved it! It really goes well with this little Franky!

I took an upclose photo to show off Franky's sparkly eyes...

How do you like those yellow whites! I especially like the blood red heart on his shirt! I achieved this by first coloring it with my R46 copic and then going over that with my black spica pen. Ok...I started out as a goof but really ended up working! Just go with it! That's my philosophy!

So what do you think? Have you guys tried this sketch yet? It's a fun one!

That's it for now. Man, I've been a stamping fool this week! ...and I have more to share! Can't wait!
