I didn't get much done this weekend. I have a two part test this week at school. Tuesday night we will have the first part (50 points) covering Chapters 1 & 2. Thursday night the remaining 50 points covering Chapters 3 & 4. I spent some of my weekend studying, watching my beloved Cubbies sweep the Pirates and take a 3.5 game lead over the Brewers in the NL Central. I did make two cards, not too excited over either one but I had to use my new Martha Stewart Halloween ribbon. The ribbon is self-adhesive, the "bones" double sided patterned paper is from a Halloween stack bought at Archiver's. The "bad to the bone" stamp is SU, the scalloped punch is also SU. The cardstock is SU. The sentiment is a stamp from the $1 bin at Michael's.

The remaining pictures are of my little girl, Gidget. Pardon the mess on the floor behind her in some of the pics, part of the giant purge. I have AmVets coming on the 2nd of October and I have bags and stacks staged for the front porch on that day.

I took this pic from above so that the card would stay closed.
Here is the card standing up, it distorts the purple cardstock and makes it look uneven, hence the pic above shot from above with the card laying flat.

Close up of Gidget taking a break from chewing her rawhide.

Gidget keeping those purly whites clean with her rawhide.

Gidge heard something outside and has taken the "I'll protect you" stance.

Here is the first card that I did and I wasn't happy with the scallop. I felt that it made the card "too girly-like" and it's supposed to be more frightening.
