Quotable Card

I saw this quote and loved it so much that I had to rush out and create a card using the quote. I wanted to keep it simple to draw attention to the quote itself. I wanted to use a rose stamp but not have it be the main image. So I did a second generation image of the rose over the top of the quote. I like how it turned out.

Well, that's it from the past week's stamping adventures. Now I'll need to make something new. I don't know if that is a good or bad thing about this forces me to continue to make new things to post pictures of.

How was everyone's Halloween last night? I am so proud of my boys. I enjoy watching them with all the other kids and adults. They were always polite. Always said 'thank you'. And they always watched out for the smaller children. We started at houses out near ours that is a newer subdivision and sure enough there were a fair amount of houses lit and hardly any trick or treaters. So they were generous with the candy. Then I went further into town (we live in the boonies) and hit a couple other subdivisions. One subdivision had houses that were still being built. This one (once again) had no trick or treaters. Some places said we were the only trick or treaters they'd had. Lots more candy. The last subdivision (which was literally across the street from the previous one) was packed with trick or treaters and lots of people had run out of candy. So, not so much candy here but better ambiance. Lots of lighted jack-o-lanterns and decorated houses. One was doing a 'scare tactics' with a rabbit they were killing (fake). They asked 'Are You Scared?' and of course my kids just said 'No'. They asked if they knew why they shouldn't be scared and my kids responded 'Cause we're on scare tactics'. The guy thanked them for being good sports. Takes more than a little blood and fake rabbit to scare my kids! LOL. After trick or treating we went out for pizza. Then we came home and put on a movie (Wonderdog) and all laid on the floor with blankets and pillows and candy and watched the movie. Then curled up and slept there together. It was a really nice night. Hope yours was too!
