Halloween wishes 43

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, August 9, 2011 @ 11:00 PM | , ,

The week is half over already! sigh... Can you believe it? For me that means my mini-vacation has come to an end :( I've been away at my home away from home with Scott and our 4 legged furry friends (Gretchen and Griffin). My dear sister Tina usually spoils me and takes care of my pups but she too is on a much needed vacation. We packed them up, crates and all, persuaded Gretchen to take her Dramamine to avoid motion sickness while in her crate during the 5 hour road trip from Phoenix, AZ to downtown San Diego, CA. My little subarbanite dogs are NOT city slickers by no means! It's always a treat to make potty runs up and down the elevator in the wee morning hours! NOT!
Along with my sewing machine and fabric for Tina's quilt, I packed up a few stamping supplies :)
I combined the darling circular shaped image of Cicely from Waltzingmouse Cicely at Halloween along with the Halloween wishes sentiment from Waltzingmouse Gracie at Halloween. I only packed a few Copic markers so I simply outlined Cicely using a few shades of Gray and sponged the edges with Ranger  Distress ink:
For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's MOJO Monday's awesome sketch. For some great inspiration, be sure to see what the DT created!
Thanks for visiting ~ hope you have a great day! Be Sweet :)
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Cicely at Halloween, Gracie at Halloween
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders  Standard Circles SM, Classic Scalloped Circles SMGrand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Authentique

Wow! Love this card! Just fab!
(one of our dogs suffered from car sickness something awefull...just going down the street was such an upset to his tum tum). The dr. had us give him Dramamine and he said to keep him on the car floor, where he can't see things moving. It worked! He could go anywhere after that. Hope this might be of help for your sweetie! :)
