Happy to be back......


Good Morning & Happy Monday Friends!

First, let me say that I am so very sorry for disappearing like I did!  My entire family was sick & as usual; I was the last one to catch the ickies.  I'm happy to report that we're all back to 100% & feeling great.....for the moment LOL!!

I did manage to get my Diva swap cards made for our monthly meeting as soon as I started to feel a bit better.  I was thinking Halloween & pulled out my fave stamp set---House of Haunts & stamped away!!  I embossed my image with black embossing powder & sponged to my hearts content....can you tell that I LOVE to sponge!  I also decided to dry emboss my black background with the spiderweb embossing folder, add some champagne mist shimmer paint & distress all my edges....I had flakes of paper all over the place LOL but the end result was worth it to me!!!

I do hope you enjoy my post & I really appreciate you all for sticking around!!!  I'm off to get my day started so I better get going!  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
