Happy Halloween with Avocado Arts

happy halloween pumpkin
Its hard to believe that Halloween is already approaching. The little man has his costume already. What are the odds of his changing his mind before then? :)

Todays project is simple and very easy to mail. The pumpkin, from Thankful for You, was stamped onto patterned paper and pieced together. A chevron (my absolute favorite) was stamped with watermark onto the base. The twine was way too white for this card, so I went over it with some Distressing Ink. Much better!

And my sneak peek of sorts for today. We are all giving you a peek at the next set to be released by Avocado Arts. This is outside the box. Not even close to what the next set is intended for. Is that cheating? :)

A closer look at the flower. The image was stamped onto kraft cardstock and cut out. The same image was stamped onto patterned paper and the middle was cut out. Which equals a funky flower. I love when I can do things like this with stamps!

If you could continue to keep my mom in your prayers, we would all greatly appreciate it. Her surgery went well on Tuesday, very well. And it went as planned, which means much less hassle for her in recovery. We are hoping she can go home on Friday. Its hard to be so far away from “home” right now. Phone calls just don’t cut it.

thanks and thanks for stopping by!
