Halloween & Injuries

Happy Wednesday!

Yesterday while scrapbooking I had an injury - and today it has my finger throbbing in pain. It's amazing how bad you can hurt yourself when you are not paying attention. I have a tv in my scrapbook room and something on the tv distracted me. When I looked up I was trying to punch a brad through paper and it stabbed me in the thumb, going right under my nail. Yes - ouch! It was bleeding and has left me with a rather sore thumb!

For my work today, I'm still working on Halloween cards. I am on the lookout for some new halloween stamps today also. As I mentioned before I only have the one set of House Mouse, which are cute, but I'd like to have some of a variety as well and since this is the 2nd year in a row I've made Halloween cards, it will be worth the investment (generally I try not to invest too much in seasonal stamps that I can't use year-round).

So another house-mouse card today. I kept the inside pretty simple - just used my SU ticket corner punch on the pattern paper. All my halloween PP is from K & Company Halloween stack - I love it! They have really cute paper & the backside of all the papers have coordinating patterns as well - it doesn't get any better than that! Most of my cardstock is from SU (and if it's not SU, I couldn't tell you what it is - I have a variety). As usual, I colored my stamp with copics, and I used my cuttlebug with swiss dots folder to emboss the orange rectangles on the front. Once again it was a Mojo Monday sketch (from the previous week).

Hope you have a great day!
