trick or treat

I am back home in Maryland. It was a difficult summer for me. I had erratic sleeping patterns, the humidity kicked my butt; I was miserable, out of sorts and lacking mojo for much of  August and September. I managed to make cards to post while I was visiting my Dad in California during October but few of them made me smile.

I think that I have finally gotten a good sleeping pattern, I have been home for 5 days and have been in bed by midnight and up by 8 each morning without an alarm.  I am feeling much more productive, and the weather is beginning to cool with far less humidity than a month ago.  I am feeling so much better.  Last night I sat down to color some cards and enjoyed the process. YEA!

Now, I know I said those crazy cat stamps kinda creeped me out...but when I saw Sandy Allnock's post combining them with the crazy dogs...well I had to get them.  They are perfect for Halloween. 

For Addicted to stamps Make your Mark

For Just Us Girls Photo Inspiration

These cards are for my crafty group...I still have a few more to make, but thought I would post these now.

I colored them with copics so I am submitting one to the Addicted to Stamps and More -Make your Mark challenge.  And another to the Just us Girls Photo Inspiration challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
