First, let me tell you that I went to see my mom, with my best friend, and when we entered her floor, there she was in the dining room! The nurse said she was up and eating for all 3 meals!!! I was dumbfounded as I expected her to still be laying in her bed looking worse for wear. The PSW's were so happy and telling me she had 2 bowls of soup and I was happily flummoxed but I will take this and cherish it. She has been good all week and even recalled things she had not spoken about in a few years. When my friend told her she had separated from her spouse(narcissistic asshole), my mom did that knowing laugh which made my friend ask what she thought of her one day ex and my mom answered, "I thought he was a nit wit!" I love it!! Now on with the show...

I love this die cut because you can do so much with this. I decided to have it cut out with my sizzex machine and then, carefully pulled the image from the die cut. I stamped all over with clear versa mark ink and, taking my pearl powders, I brushed on the colours where I wanted them. I glued the piece down on black cardstock and then placed it on orange cardstock. I added the silhouette of the cat, also down in powder, and added the spiderweb and pumpkins along with the saying.

I made this sucker on a whim creating the background and trying the crackle paint. I hated the look and threw it in a corner where it stayed for quite a while. I finally picked up the piece of crap and dumped it on my table where I stared at the muck. Monday, I suddenly thought of an idea, which I have from time to time, and stamped, painted and fussy cut the owl image as well as the leaves (the smaller ones were embossed with powders). Now I like this bookmark but should I have a piece of ribbon or something attached to it on the upper left hand corner so it dangles down? Thoughts??
