Royal Blog Tour ~ Make A Monster Stamp Set

Welcome to your next stop around the castle.  While we are featuring monsters today we are not here to scare you but to entertain!  Since Halloween has come and left us sweet rewards, I have tried to align my stamping with the thoughts of the royal court jester and make some merry monsters! 
The first monster you will encounter today would like to put on a show for you…
You put your right hand in,
You put your right hand out;
You put your right hand in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey-Pokey,
And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!  Really?!
Our next monster you will find hanging from the rafters of the castle.  There is no need to fear bats and other creatures when you have this guy hanging from the ceiling.    He is here to remind you to have fun and let yourself do something unexpected.
The last card has a pair of monsters that have fallen for each other.  Even though he may be a monster, our young man has not forgotten that it is the little things that matter and brought a fresh picked flower for his girl (even though she may end up eating it!). 
I hope you have enjoyed our little friends and will be inspired to pull out some monsters just to say “hi” to someone in your life.

As your royal gift from me you have the opportunity to enter for some blog candy.  You will receive these cards as well as the Vintage Labels stamp set (clear mount).  All you need to do is email me with your name and email address.
Thanks for visiting my blog. 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your enjoy the rest of the tour!

dcbd201[1] Like always after any stamping break it took me a long time to be able to come up with anything at all that I could do with this sketch.  I liked the look of it better turned over and made a fun little Thanksgiving card.

Oh Wow

I have not stamped in FOR_EV_ER.  We really have been dealing with a lot over in the Brown household and I have not been able to keep all of my balls that I am juggling up in the air.  Unfortunately the stamping and blogging balls were the first to get dropped.  But my husband is back at work, we are all currently healthy and it is ready to try and get some other things going again.  Thanks for being faithful and coming back.  I do have some things from a while ago to show you, a lot of it is Halloween related so I will probably skip those, but don't forget to come back for the blog tour this weekend.  Luckily they encouraged us to get an early start on it otherwise I would not be able to participate.  I have had those done for a month now.  I am going to my desk as soon as the kids are down so that I can work on tomorrow’s Diva Coffee Break Designs Challenge it is a wonderful sketch so come back and check it out.  Ok now on to some stamping.

This card is one that I did for my monthly swap on the sudemoonly yahoo group.  The swap was due in the mail on Sept 30 so I am guessing that everyone has seen it by now and it is safe to post, I have not had a chance to see if everyone has or not.   The swap was a Christmas themed one.

sept ccsThis is a shadow box card, I really love the way that it turned out.  I was trying to do a little something different, I think that I found the instructions on splitcoast but it was so long ago I don't really remember.  The ribbon is white taffeta ribbon dyed with cherry cobbler ink, I really wish we had actually ribbon in this color.  I really like the touch that the glass glitter adds to the frame.   

Have a great night, and I hope I can get back to chat with you soon!
