Hey everyone!  As I promised on Tuesday, I'm posting the card I made using a $2 stamp I found at AC Moore in the clearance bin; don't you just love clearance items?! 

I'd like to give a very special thank you to those of you who sent your well wishes for my little girl.  She's doing much better now.  She's still not eating, but at least she's drinking and playing with her brother, so I know she's okay now.

I just have to mention that I went to Target on Monday and they had their 12" x 12" scrapbooking dp back in stock (located in the $ spot section).  They had some Halloween, fall, school, and sports related designs.  I'll be keeping my eyes open for some Christmas dp in their $ spot.  I don't have a big selection of Christmas decorative paper and I need some.

One more note, I'm currently hosting a CAS (clean & simple) Christmas card swap through splitcoast stampers.  If anyone is interested in joining my swap feel free to post a message for me in my swap thread found here (you must be a splitcoast member and you have to be an approved swap member).  I only have 9 spots left.  Your cards will be returned to you in plenty of time to use them this holiday season.  Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions about my card swap.  You will find my email in the contact section under my profile page.

Now onto my card.....I stamped my image using black stazon ink and then I colored it using my SU markers.  This image was so quick and easy to color, I could easily see myself stampin and coloring several of these at once.

My background is embossed using my cuttlebug and my 'boo to you' embossing folder.  I sort of liked how the boo in the bottom circle of my background matched my image.

The bats were punched using my EK Success bat punch and my ribbon is from Offray.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow!
