And So It Begins

Guess what I got in the mail!!!  The Stampin Up 2014 Holiday Catalog!!!!  And to celebrate the pre-holiday ordering season, my demonstrator gave me some stamped images to play with.  Of all of them, the Happy Hanukkah stamp JUMPED OUT AT ME!   I'll give you three guesses why.... isn't this SPOOKILY DELICIOUS?!?

I IMMEDIATELY thought of Halloween when I saw this GORGEOUS candelabra and requested it be stamped without the "Happy Hanukkah" sentiment as it is all one stamp.  The Hanukkah example in the catalog is really very beautiful, but this sort of SCREAMS Halloween to me.  I'll give you two more guesses what will be on my next Stampin Up order.... LOL!

And so it begins!  This is my first Halloween project this year and my blood is boiling with excitement for the upcoming Halloween season. Gonna have to brew some coffee.... I'm gonna be inking up some more Halloween fun!  MAN!  I need to get moving on my costume!!!!

Gorgeous candelabra! So perfect for a Hallowe'en card.
It's about time you got started. You know I never quit, so I've just been waiting for everyone else to catch up.

The Chanukah Menorah is a religious symbol so some people may be offended by using it this way. Just a hint. No offense intended.

I received the above comment and felt the need to go ahead and allow the comment to post. I IN NO WAY meant to offend my Jewish friends. If I offended in any way I am sorry. Had it been a real menorah, I promise, I would not have knowingly altered it for the holiday of Halloween. My posts are never meant to offend.

Quite A Long Hiatus... But I'm Back!!!

What Happened????  I've been out of commission for a LONG time!  Well... there's a story!  Isn't there always???  Let me see if ...
