31 Days of Halloween - Day 10 ***Three Pumpkins***

Good morning's raining here now on this cool Wednesday morning.  I am waiting on Eric to wake up now because he said he wanted to go with me to Stamp Your Art Out.  They are at 50% off everything now and so I really want to get back there again.  For some of you who mentioned and asked if this is the store that put on the Stamp Away conventions in Sharonville; yes it is the same one.  She said they will host next year's Stamp Away XXI but I don't know what will happen after that if someone else will host it and get it all together or if it will just fade away...which I certainly hope the latter of the two won't happen.  They are such sweet dear women who run the shop.  I love it!  Have taken a few classes there as well.  Very friendly atmosphere when you walk in.  It was VERY packed the other day and certain deals allowed you to get 50% off at that time, I think if you spent over a certain amount you would automatically get 50% when I hear this and then I hear 'your total is $187.00' and then I hear "is that with the 50% off?" and then a simple "yes", I am like WHAT!  I could never spend that much on this.  Well let me rephrase that...I would LOVE to be able to do that, but the fact that electricity, food, gas and shelter mean a little more to me right  But I was a green eyed monster when I would hear this.  I know jealousy and envy is a bad thing but woooo!  So that is why I am going there today.  Eric is coming with me and I will sweet talk him to death and yea... MUhahahahaha.  

I wanted to mention a couple people here my friends Maria from Germany and Claire from Scotland sent me birthday cards.  I received them both yesterday and wanted to share them with you.
This one is from Claire

This one is from Maria who also sent some tea

So thank you both ladies!  They are very much appreciated.

Ok now you're wondering where day 10 is right?  "Christy get to it already!..."  I need help, lol.  So here is my Day 10 for the 31 Days of Halloween

Day 10 of 31 Days of Halloween

The card is 5x7 , created with a yellow card stock base, patterned paper from the Cloud 9 Designs "Seasonal" paper collection.  I stamped the pumpkins with Memento ink onto orange cardstock & then stamped them again onto Neenah paper using StazOn ink and then used watercolor pencils and water. I then popped the water colored image on top of the orange cardstock image to make it 3D.  I used Dear Lizzy Neapolitan "Happy Horizon" paper for the border behind the pumpkins as well for the sentiment.

I know that you might be looking for Day 9, but I skipped over day nine for now.  I wanted to stay on the same day as everyone else.  I may put an extra project in here before the 31st.  I am really going into overdrive here on the apartment front.  We actually put a deposit down yesterday on the one I mentioned the other day.  So for my birthday on Monday Eric and I went to see this GLORIOUS place and fell in love.  Actually seeing the townhome that we would be moving into.  This place is right next to a park and where our particular townhome is we will be directly next to the park....can you say AWESOMENESS!!!! I wanted to tell you all about the floor plan and how big this is compared to where I am now.  First of all where I am now is only 954 Sq Feet, the new place is 1300 sq feet!!!!
The new place (hopefully) will have 2 floors, gigantic living room, private patio as well as a private entrance.  We choose the home on the very end and in the very front because we think it is more private and will hopefully not be very noisy.

Thanks so much for stopping by, take care and be sure to be creative today in some way, shape or form.
See you tomorrow.

Christy, so glad the apartment hunting seems to be working out for you! You did something on this tag I hadn't thought of -making the back image on the orange paper. A lot of my last posts (the last seven for the hop) use the layering technique and it bothers me to see all of that white! this is great!
