Owl Punch Extravaganza VIII.... Halloween In July part II

Am I weird that the title of this post just cracked me up???

So I think this one is my new favorite.  HOW am I going to give these cards away????  20 owl punch themed cards (one posted daily for 20 days) will be going to the person who places the largest order for my card club party using my hostess code.  All YOU have to do to participate is place an order, here's how:

Simply go to and click on "store" at the top.  Place the items you'd like to order in the shopping cart and input the hostess code where provided to get full credit for your purchase. The hostess code is UCUFWPDU!

THE BEST PART:  You won't have to wait to receive your order.  Your order will ship to you within two business days!!!  No more waiting for a show to "close" to get your goodies.  THIS is instant gratification.  And if you REALLY want to win the 20 cards for yourself, feel free to contact my Stampin Up demonstrator in her store (click HERE) to check on the status of order amounts.  She won't share names, she will only share the largest amount ordered so you can put yourself in the winning position.  Good luck everyone!!!

So this particular card is a favorite because of the content.... I ADORE anything Halloween!!!!  That little Frankenstein owl was cased from Di over at Stampin With Di and the card design itself was cased from the Stampin Up website.... I used my own stuff of course, but it does feature washi tape, a button, linen thread and sentiment (retired: Smarty Pants) all from Stampin Up, but then I used an Impression Obsession stripe background stamp for the background on the banner and Canvas Corp's Black n' Kraft The Raven scrapbook paper adding a little miscellaneous bling.  I LOVE how this turned out!  It is not lost on me that because of the sentiment, this DOESN'T have to be a Halloween-specific card.

Whoever receives these cards.... feel free to send me this one as a "Thank You".  LOL!  Come back by tomorrow for Halloween in July, The Revenge!!!

UPDATE:  I need to make a HUGE correction.  The inspiration for this card did NOT come from the Stampin Up website.  It was ACTUALLY inspired by Georgeann's creation over at Stampin Everything!!!  My apologies Georgeann.... your gift bag is so stinkin cute and deserves EVERY bit of credit!!!!


LOL!! I loveeeeeeee that sentiment!!!!!

I Love Being Hit By Mack Trucks

Ok, so my friend Cindy came over to play with all her new Stampin Up goodies.  When I first looked at the Yippee Skippee stamp set I fell in love with all but ONE stamp, "Never Underestimate The Power of Two"????  What the heck does that mean???  Is that supposed to be a "couples" stamp, like for Valentines or weddings or something?  I don't know, but when you apply that sentiment to alcohol, well..... Isn't it JUST so obvious how perfect this sentiment is?!?  I mean, it was like being hit with a Mack truck!  LOL!  Cindy and I were SOOOO proud of ourselves!!!  This card is AWESOME!!!!  We added the "or three" to the end realizing that it is just funnier that way!!!  We used a TON of Stampin Up goodies for this card: Inks and Papers - Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White Stamp Sets - Yippee Skippy, Happy Hour Tools - Big Shot, Banners Framelits, Paper Piercer, Paper Piercing Mat Additional - Linen Thread,

You'd Think I'd Have Had Enough!

Wow.... so HOW many times can I use this image??? HAHAHAHAHAHA! I can't help it! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Victoria Case Magical Sophie stamp !!! But, I promise, this is the last time you'll see her this season. I've got WAY too many new and oh-so-cute stamps and goodies coming and I'll have to use ALL of them this Halloween.... you know how it is. So I did this card for The Town Scrapper (which, BTW, is where I got this cute little gem). Today starts the sketch challenge for the week over there. If you'd like to participate, click on the link above. Of all types of challenges, sketch challenges are my favorite. And this particular sketch is super fun just because of all the design elements that are so perfectly placed. Check back in tomorrow... I will be announcing the winner of the October 31st Cricut Cartridge. There's still time to enter, here's THE LINK for the details. Good luck everyone! :)

Dealing With A Deep Pantry

Well... I am putting things together in the new house.  We've moved and I'm starting to find stuff in the mountain of boxes... unfortunately, my camera cord is not one of them!!!  So sorry in advance for the pics that are coming in the next few postings while I look for it.  But with Kevin's surgery over with and getting out of cramped quarters in the apartment, I'm finally getting my life back and into the swing of ORGANIZING the new home!!!  Needless to say, after such a long time of not posting, I have a few things to show you.  But I'm going to start with the pantry. When we first purchased the house I had grand designs to turn this DEEP pantry into a step in-pantry by removing the shelving that is currently in there and replacing it with thinner shelving (going from about 20" shelves to 12" shelves).  There is nothing worse than a pantry that hides stuff because things get buried in deep shelving.  But after paying movers and buying window coverin
