First Halloween Card of 2012

Here it is - my first Halloween card for 2012!  I went to Archivers last week and just couldn't resist this stamp. It's always a treat for me to visit Archivers because it's about an hour away - good thing is that it's all highway driving :) I used little green star gems from Studio G to put on the stars of the various hats and then two little spider buttons from my stash. I de-shanked (is this even a word? it is now, I guess lol) them and used glue dots to adhere them to the card.  All the papers I used came out of my scraps drawer. I found the sentiment online and thought it would go nicely with the front of the card.
All this about witches brought to mind a joke I received by email not too long ago from a really good friend ...

To those of you who are nit-pickers about the meaning of words:

There is a medical distinction between Guts and Balls. We've all heard about people having Guts or Balls, but do you really know the difference between them? In an effort to keep you informed, here are the definitions:
GUTS - is arriving home late, after a night out with the guys, being met by your wife with a broom, and having the Guts to ask, “Are You still cleaning, or are you flying somewhere?”
BALLS - is coming home late after a night out with the guys, smelling of perfume and beer, with lipstick on your collar, and slapping your wife on the butt and having the Balls to say, “You're next, Chubby.”
I hope this clears up any confusion on the definitions.
Medically speaking, there is no difference in the outcome ... Both result in instant death!

I hope you had a good chuckle, my crafty friends, and wish you a wonderful day.


  1. I love the card it is so nice and the colors are matching very well. The shop where you went is that the one where they have the stamp with the ladies in the bath drinking wine? Theone I told you: "I want that one!!!"

    And...I am happy now to know the difference between balls and guts ha ha
