I can not believe it's been two weeks since I last stop by this here blog and visited with all of you.
I really don't have any excuse why I've been gone - just getting lackadaisical in my old age I guess. But then who can blame me - the weather is nice and cool - the leaves are starting to turn and Autumn will soon be here. I love this time of year and I have certainly been enjoying it's inviting reprieve from the scorching heat we had this summer.
I am also a little preoccupied with the class I sign up to take at our local collage. It's an Adobe Photoshop Elements Basic course. My self and one older gentleman are the only seniors in a class full of young mothers - who want to learn Photoshop Elements to enhance their scrapbooking. And those young minds are grasping this stuff a whole lot easier than I am -so I have to work hard on it here at home. Keep practicing and maybe I'll get it down pat.
I wanted to share with you some spooky Halloween ATC's. The Swap for September over at The Altered Paper blog was Halloween - which is sooooooo much fun to create for.
This is the ATC I received from my partner April Cole. Isn't it just the cutest thing. Thank you so much for being such a great partner . -I love my card. Check out April's blog here.
All the items that Mr. Mailman brought from April. So cool. -I know she didn't know this but I am addicted to candy corn; for eating and for decorating. ( Another good reason I love this time of year.)
Here is the card that I made for April. I started with a kind of orangey marble background that was free a the Plush Possum Studio blog - overlayed a rather transparent cemetery scene over it. Added my text and then cut out this cute cat (the original was a flocked cut out that I bought for my first Halloween Party way back in 1960, which I scanned into my computer and shrunk him down to fit on the card.) I then added the little pumpkins and ghost.
So what do you think? I liked it - sure hope April liked it as well.
Here is the card I made to accompany my ATC on it's trip to April's house.
Had a howling good time creating this one.
Now I need to get back to work on my Photoshop Elements homework for the week.
