These are the Ghoul Times!

My boss shared this Far Side cartoon with me many years ago and it makes me laugh every time I see it! Today starts a new monthly challenge on the JFF Rubber Stamps blog and the theme is Halloween!

Freckles and a Temper

“The so-called Irish temperament is a mixture of flaming ego, hot temper, stubbornness, great personal charm and warmth, and a wit that shines through adversity.

I used Newton’s Nook Beautiful Bones stamp set and created some masks that I fussy cut from Post it tape. I colored and shaded… Continue reading Be You, the World Will Adjust!

Rolling with my Peeps

I love a good joke, especially the kind that evokes a good belly laugh. You know, the side splitting guffaw, tears running and you can’t breathe laughter? I feel euphoric after a good laugh and always want more. My sister and I would try to make each other laugh all the time when we were… Continue reading Rolling with my Peeps
