I just love this Halloween stamp! I think it's a riot. It's from Stampendous. The paper is all left over from last year so I'm not sure who made it. Anyway, what is everyone going to be this year?! All the teachers on my floor at school are going to dress up like cowboys (I know it's a boring idea but coming from Chicago there are no cowboys around here). I managed to find a black leather vest with fringe on it and a purse with horses all over it, at the resale shop here. I totally embarrassed my daughter wearing it through the store. It was so funny. I guess I'm doing my job as a mom if I embarrass her. Anyway, I hope everyone has a great Halloween trick or treating with the kiddies. Try not to eat all the chocolate before you even get back home (I've been known to do that).

It's About Time!!

I know, I know! It's about time I post something. Everyone around school and some friends have been asking me what happened to my blog. So last night there was no football, band or anything else so I was on a roll stamping. I made several cards for the next few weeks to post. I also figured I had better get my Halloween cards up and running before it's Thanksgiving. So here I am, back to posting (and still going to football games and it's 50 degrees here and the wind is like a hurricane, won't that be a fun game to sit at???!!!) These stamps are from an SU set that I just love and don't own. I had to beg, borrow and steal this set from a friend.
Anyway, I think this is going to be a crazy week at school, what with Halloween and kids. I'm sure all the teachers out there know what I am talking about. My whole school dresses up, preschool thru 8th grade and even the teachers. We are going to be cowboys this year. Pretty simple costom to put together. So, how many Sarah Palin's do you think we'll all see this year?
Quite a few, I'm sure. Anyway, have a great week and thanks for coming back to visit me.

I AM still alive out here in blog land. As much as I like football and competition band season I will be glad when it is over. Tomorrow is Casey's last competition, but football is another story.
Danny's team has not lost a game and is going into playoffs next weekend. Maybe the championship after that. HOWEVER, Danny managed to break his wrist at practice on Thursday and will now be hanging out with the waterboys on the sidelines. It's pretty depressing because he is so into the season, he plays the whole game and they really count on him (he's the kicker and something else (I don't know my football positions)). This is his first sports injury ever, amazing!! On another note, I ask you for some extra prayers these days. My girlfriend's 16 year old son was in a car accident last weekend and is really broken up. They had to rebuild several vertebrae using hip bones and his sholder is also broken. He is wear a halo on his head. Matt is healing fine but the saddness and why me attitude has set in. I know he will be fine in the long run, but the long run is going to be a very long road. Any extra prayers you have will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so very much.
Anyway, I will stop rambling on. I haven't stamped is so long but haven't forgotten it. The minute I have an extra five minutes I'll be back at it. So, take care and thanks for stopping by~
