Holiday Hop!

August Blog Hop!

I'm sure that you enjoyed Debbie's 
Blog Hop projects.  But then you have to agree
that the best pictures were of her Granddaughters!!  
So cute.

 These silly pumpkins are from the
Halloween Happiness single stamp set in the
Holiday Mini.  It is easy to color this stamp
with your markers, so that you can coordinate
with your card base and accessories.

Color:  Whisper White, Calypso Coral,
Old Olive, Basic Black
Epic Day This and That DSP

Other:  Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder,
Candy Dots

 My second offering pairs my favorite new catalog
set (Gorgeous Grunge) with the Halloween Bash
set on page 21 of the Holiday Mini.  The 
Gorgeous Grunge set allows you to create your 
own background or DSP look. Here is a grunge close-up.

Add a strip
of the Witches Brew Designer Washi Tape and you
are rockin Halloween.  The Witches Brew Washi
reminds me of police caution tape (maybe because
we had some up in our neighborhood this weekend!
NO, I did not commit any crimes. We actually had
a rotted power pole lean and pull lines down. Part of our
street was blocked off with tape & cones
for a day, while repairs were completed.)

Colors: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black

Other:  Ovals Framelits Collection,
Candy Dots

My final card highlights the delightful new
"Expressions Thinlits Dies" on page 36 of
the Holiday Mini.   It's hard to tell, but
 I "cut" the word thank--ful apart,
to enable it to be bent around the leaves.  Speaking of
leaves, the Autumn Accents look soooo real. They are
incredibly fun to color and use on projects. 
Just draw veins with a stylus and then sponge.

Colors:  So Saffron, Whisper White,
Pumpkin Pie, Always Artichoke

Other:  Big Shot, Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Stylus,
Stampin' Pierce Mat, Woodgrain Embossing Folder,
Simply Pressed Clay, Buttons and Blossoms 
Clay Mold, Sponges

Pole Dancing

A power pole tilted dangerously the other night.
Thank God, the guy working nearby did not get electrocuted
when the lines came down all around him. 

 In the picture above, the pole is leaning and DP&L
is attempting to secure it.

This truck has a "grab bar" on it to hold on to
the pole.  They had to leave it over night, to make
sure that the telephone pole (which was rotten
at the bottom), didn't go down, taking power lines with it.

Nothing like entertainment in the hood!
