Fiendishly Fun Friday... and a little Pink Aye...

Ok, I'm still kicking around challenge days & names... here's a list and I would appreciate any feedback :)

Macabre Monday, Terrifying Tuesday, Wicked Wednesday (or Wickedly Weird or Witchy), Blood Thirsty Thursday (or Tricked-Out), Fiendishly Fun Friday (or Frightful), Spine-Tingling Saturday, Blood-Sucking Sunday

So, I just got back from a little shopping excursion to Michael's & HomeGoods... all Halloween purchases :) I've got to get a little crafty on a few items before they are truly decor worthy, though... now to find the time to do it!

I've decided that since a large part of my home decor is halloweenie and stays out year-round anyway, I'm going to bite the bullet and start purging some 'standard' and Christmas seasonal decor items that are packed away and taking up valuable storage space. No worries... I'm keeping the 10' tall tree and all the trimmings, but some of the other stuff has got to go!

Ok, on to today's card! I've performed stamp surgery before, and I can't remember which Angel suggested it for this set, but I am so thankful! I cut the swirl off of the bottom of the heart and created two separate stamps. Originally, I was going to set the skull on top of the swirl... I'd seen images similar to that I liked... but I turned it upside down just for grins... doesn't it look like a pirate's hat (tricorne)?!

Not just any pirate hat, a pirate princess hat...

well, a dead pirate princess...

ok, technically a skeleton of a dead pirate princess...


you get the point. Don't you just love taking a rubber stamp and creating something unexpected? Yeah, me too.

Stamps: Forever Family, Mini-bet, Punk Princess (retired)
Paper: Premium White & white UltraSmooth cardstocks
Ink: Noir Palette
Other: Prismacolors w/ mineral oil, misc. ribbon & jewel, Scor-Pal


Super clean & simple... not really my style but it still ranks a "me likey"...

What do you think?
