The Witch is In

Hi all -

I know it's been awhile since I've posted something new.  It's not that I haven't been busy, that's for sure.  A couple of weeks ago, it was my birthday.  My daughter, who lives in Colorado, and her husband and my granddaughter came to surprise me for my birthday.  That was the best birthday present a mom could have.  They spent 4 days with us and as a second birthday present, they announced they will be moving back.  Her husband got a job transfer here.  Isn't that just great?  Now I won't be a part-part-time grandma anymore.  My daughter and granddaughter will be coming mid November, just in time for Thanksgiving and my son-in-law will arrive mid December.  I can't wait.  Here is a picture of Miss Bella in our front yard. 

I have also been working on alot of projects for one of the casino's I work for.  I don't know if I will be able to post those pictures.  I have to check with my boss first.  If I can, I will do so in the next few days.  I can tell you I made some really cute pumpkin decals.  You know the little pumpkins?  I just used black vinyl and cut out a flying witch, a tree and some bats.  They turned out really cute.  I also make their advertisements each month and had to make 20 table top tents.  That was a work out.  LOL

So onto my project.  As you know a couple of weeks ago I had made a sign for my girlfriend's kitchen.  I had shown some of my customers what I had made.  We have a sign in one of my casinos that reads:  The Witch is IN/OUT.  She asked me if I could duplicate that sign.  Well of course I can...LOL  So here is the sign I made.
I used the foam core and covered it with black bazzil.  I cut the witch hat out of purple card stock from Kandrew's "A Mice Halloween" and adhered a black and orange ribbon.  I then used my Tombo Mono Liquid Glue and traced around the rim of the hat and added a bit here and there.  I then glittered that.  The spider I cut out of black vinyl.  Pretty cute huh?  I cut the letters in SCAL using Matisse ITC font in orange and black vinyl.  I cut 2 pieces of chipboard,
glued them together and covered that with purple cardstock. 
I also glittered the tag.  I also colored the rhinestones purple
and orange with the Bic Markit permanent markers.  I just
love making my own embellishments to fit the project.  I
attached the tag with a "screw" brad and added purple, black 
and orange ribbon as the hanger.  So, please leave me a
comment and tell me what you think. 

I do have another project coming up and I will be a quest designer for another blog next week.  I will give you more details as the time comes closer.

As always, have a great day and god bless.
