Exciting Firsts

My husband says I'm weird, and I'm sure he's right, but I got to cross something off my "bucket list" yesterday...proofing galley sheets.  Basically, I got to read a novel before it hits the bookstores.  It is slated for publication in March.  It's called "No Safe Haven" by Kimberley and Kayla Woodhouse.  And I got to read it while sitting in their home built by Extreme Makeover Home Edition.  Talk about cool.


I came home to find I had been selected as a Friday Five winner by the Close to My Heart Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog...another first.  That one wasn't on my bucket list, but maybe it should have been.  This week, Heart 2 Heart is challenging us to create something spooky or something with a pumpkin.

This card uses CTMH stamp sets Little Treasures, Seasonal Thoughts and Express Postage.  The paper is from Expedition.  I am having fun with my new sewing machine, and couldn't resist adding a ruffled Creme Brulee ribbon.  I don't think you can really tell from these pictures, but I completely covered the jar image with liquid glass.  It looks very much like the spider and web (hand drawn) are inside a glass jar. 

Hope you all have a safe and spooktacular Halloween!

Until next time,
Becca

  1. Very cute! I love that you hand drew the spider and web and the liquid glass is a great, textured touch. Super ruffled ribbon as well! Thanks for playing along with us at Heart 2 Heart challenges!

  2. Congratulations on both accomplishments Becca! That's really neat! Your card is cute, I'm working on the OWH blog post for tomorrow and dropped by your blog so I could link it to OWH. Have a great day and thanks for being our "sample maker". ;)
