WOW!!!! What an amazing fun few days!!! Kim Teasdale and I went to Victoria on Friday to see our Fearless leader, Jessica Knutsen who is on a mini holiday in Canada with her family (Jessica was also here for the event Kim and I were hosting). We kidnapped her for the day and we went to a few stamp stores, an art store, a scrapbooking store (at each stop, my wallet came out and I bought way too many things!!!) - I had great enablers! I managed to enable Jessica and Kim a few times too.
We were having so much fun, we didn't realize how hungry we were getting. It was getting a bit late in the afternoon so we went to Red Robin. YUMMO!!! We introduced Jessica to Poutine and she loved it! It was so funny, because she thought it sounded like a "naughty" word. We had to giggle every time Jessica said it. What is Poutine you ask? It's Fries, Cheese Curds and hot Gravy. YUMMY!!!
Kim and I hosted a Stamping event on Saturday which was a blast. Jessica came up to Nanaimo for it. My BSF Corinna had to cancel last minute so we were definitely missing her on this day!!!! I can't wait to meet Corinna in the near future. We'll be having a stamping in PJ's weekend soon. (I have a lot of pics from the event - will be posting on my blog soon). We had a great group of ladies, a few who I hadn't met including Glenda Wyatt (an Amuse Instructor) and Tobi Crawford. Love these girls!!!! They both have such amazing style in their cards!!
Okay... enough talking about our fun weekend, you're here for my card right? hehehehe. I have made this card for this week's color challenge hosted by the amazingly talented Sandra MacLean at There She Goes which is Black, Orange and Green. You're wondering about all that purple right? Well... I wanted to use it. I just had to - sponges were calling my name and Kim gave me a mini lesson on how she sponges so I had to use it. Can I say purple is my new neutral? I've used the tree image from the set, Treemendous and the mummy is from Hauntingly Delightful. I've watercolored the mummy with my Tombow Markers. The DP is from Echo Park (part of their Halloween line) and the ribbons were bought at Michaels. (Sorry about the bad pic - I am house sitting at my parents and don't have my photo box with me right now).
