Here's a peek at what I have been up to this week, but just a peek!  When October arrives I can't help but start creating skulls.  They are a little Day of the Deadish and a whole lot of cute.  I really like mixing materials, and I hope to experiment more with that this year.  Check out my Etsy site where you can find a few resident skulls right now.  But the newbies haven't been listed yet.  They will be arriving soon, like in the next week.  So be sure to visit a few times.
This was one card I just had to hold on to for a while.  I LOVE this image from Tiddly Inks.
It's not just skulls that have kept me busy these days.  Nope.  I had a wee bit of surgery which gave me some extra time to play with Copics- and it gave me a BUNCH of reasons to make Thank-You cards.  And what says thank you better than Copics?  And since I had so much "down time" I decided to add to my colorful collection of markers.  They arrived and now I am busy creating some crafty storage for them. But I promise to save that for another post.  

I also have to give a huge shout out to my Mom!  She earned her OTCH during my blogging absence.  An OTCH- one of those acronyms that I have no idea what it means.  I do know it is incredibly difficult to achieve and in the sixty years our local dog training club has existed only five people have earned one.  And while a simple little card cannot possibly be adequate congratulations, I nonetheless felt inspired to drop one in the mail.  The image is a personal favorite from Smeared Ink. I love all their little Grumpies!  I also LOVE the dew drops- the clear and metallic pink plastic embellishments on the front.  They bring an element of fun.  And you can't see it in this photo, but the black strip at the top and bottom is actually glitter tape from Michael's.  I found it on a Halloween end cap and knew I had to have it.  I think I will have to buy another roll or two!

Have a great weekend!-  Renee
