Who's Your Mummy?

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! I'm happy to report we had our first sunny weekend since June! No kidding...we've had so much rain here that the ducks are building boats. I just returned from a week in the desert southwest...geez Louise...105-110 temps...but it's a dry heat (nope, it's a FRY heat). When you step out of the airport, it's like walking into a blast furnace. You just can't breathe for a minute. 

Anyway, I'm happy to say that this Halloween, DRS Designs will have a fabulous Mummy image to go with the funny mummy greeting. I will say, last year w/ just the greeting, we did have some fun coming up with our own mummies (you can see them HERE). The mummy was stamped, a little shading added and fussy cut. I thought he went well with this Ghost Family and accent bats/ bat w/ moon images. They are all stamped w/ white ink and I colored in their socks w/ fluorescent pens. Funny thing about those a recent stamp convention I saw them in a booth across from the one I was working and went over to buy them. The guy who rang them up says "oh your kids will love these, the kids having been buying these all day." Ummm. Ok.  I didn't tell him they were for me. I love neon stuff. I also shop a lot in the kids art supply section. They have the neatest toys!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend and don't forget to check out the kid's section of your local craft store. You'll see what I mean.

paper: white, black
ink: Memento tuxedo black, Brilliance moonlight white

The bits of neon green really stand out! Great card and those "kid" pens work great!

Aren't we all just kids at heart anyway?

Fun card Julie - the mummy really pops on the black layer and those crazy socks look like they'll glow in the dark (how cool would that be???)

Hi Julie!
I love fluorescent & bright colors. I always check out the kids section at the craft store. I've found some really neat stuff. I also go to make & takes. Many of the employees enjoy them as well. We all buy the materials for ourselves too.
