Welcome to the show!

Both cards feature High Hopes stamps from their latest release in July. They are so much fun!

Magic Happens: The medium brown bunny on the right is popped up on dimensionals as well as one ear on the bunny behind him.

Stamps: Max the Magnificent & sentiment - High Hopes
Paper: white, black, real red, real red DSP
Ink: black
Accessories: Copic markers, white gel pen, brads, ribbon, dimensionals, large oval, circle & designer label punches

Clowns are like birthdays....

The sentiment is printed from the computer. The inside says:

"... they're supposed to be cute and funny, but they're just plain scary."

I found something similar in a store bought greeting card. I'm starting to feel guilty that I made a joke about clowns with this cute little Juggles. I sure hope I haven't offended the artist of the image.

Stamps: Juggles - High Hopes
Paper: close to cocoa, chocolate chip, white, close to cocoa DSP, real red
Ink: black
Accessories: Copic markers, ribbon, brads, oval punches

I wouldn't be Miss Boo if I didn't like Halloween! Actually, I love everything that has to do with Autumn: colors of the leaves, visiting the apple orchard, craft shows, beginning of a new school year, Halloween parties, and Thanksgiving with family. So, you will be seeing a lot of Halloween and autumn cards during the next few weeks. And there will be other stuff in between, too. ;) Today, I have some witches for you!

Featured Stamper Roses

The featured stamper challenge on Splitcoast is every Sunday. The idea is to be inspired by a card in their gallery.
