Ready for Autumn? Yeah, me neither. But here we go anyway!
Here are some cards I've been working on with Cosmo Crickets Haunted Line:
This one is with Cosmo Cricket's Haunted Eerie and Macabre and Haunted Rub-ons. Basically I used Macabre paper for the background. I sliced up Eerie using a French curves template for the hills. Applied the Rub-on. And added EK Success Stickers-moon, ghost and house.
And for this one I used Cosmo's Haunted Nevermore and Eerie Patterned paper, and Cosmo's Haunted Stamps. I used Nevermore patterned paper for the background, and then used the other side of Nevermore for the smaller square in the middle. I added Eerie to the bottom. I applied purple Colorbox ink the the "Trick or treat" Cosmo Stamped title. Then I added the EK Success tree, owl, and tombstones.
I think I'm getting over my bad mood. I've learned not to talk a lot when I get down, less to apologize for later. I've been spending a lot of time on the swing with J. I went to Target to try some retail therapy, but the economy has me too depressed to enjoy it. They say this will be the worst Christmas (as far as spending goes) in 15 years. I did buy J a truck and myself a soda. Staring down October is always hard for me since dh's injury and M's death. But I have a son now and I have to snap out of this. It isn't fair to go through life beating myself up for what I can't change, never had a choice about. My little boy deserves to love autumn as much as I used to, maybe someday will again.
Good news and bad news at the same time, always right? Dh made Major and has been officially selected for a new unit assignment, something he has been working for now for over a year. Unfortunately, his travel was supposed to end in Oct. Now it will cont through Nov. Not the end of the world, just a set back, a change in expectations. I can do this. This is what I do, I adjust, I adapt, I regroup, I get it done. I can do this.
Hope you are having a great weekend and enjoying the beautiful weather. Wow for that!
