Witchie, Witchie, Screamie, Screamie

Hello.  🙂  Halloween is just around the corner and I’ve had this cute little Tiddly Inks witch colored on my table, just waiting to be put together.  Since I have a marathon of posts coming up beginning Friday, I thought I better get to it now.

Other than the big piece of plaid, the patterned strips and blocks were leftover scraps from Cosmo Cricket’s Matilda paper pad.  I got the idea for the little face on the pumpkin from one of the other patterns in the pad.  I love the little “stitched-ish” smile.

Do you see that little black ribbon tag on the sentiment?  I added that as an afterthought.  The card was all put together and I decided I wanted to add “something.”  So guess what I did?  I stitched the whole card together when I added it.   Yep.  Stitched straight through to the back.  lol.  UGH.  (And this was right after I checked tonight’s dinner in the crockpot only to find that I’d forgotten to plug it in.)  ?????  SO…I cut the back off the card, cut around the stitches and glued the front onto a new card base.  It’s a little thick (lol) but good as new.  🙂

As usual, my image is colored with markers, and then the ground and bits of shading were added with pencils. 

I’ll be back on Friday with this month’s JiFFy Challenge and then My Favorite Things previews begin Saturday!  🙂

Thanks SO much for stopping by!  (And if you’d like to make me feel better, feel free to share one of  your own stupid moments.  lol.)  Have a great day!

  1. Oh, Michelle, sorry to hear about your rough day. They both sound like something I would do! 🙂 I have sewn through my card base on accident before. Here’s a stupid moment for you: I went to the grocery store a couple weeks ago and handed the checker my coupons after she rang everything up. One coupon wouldn’t work. She checked the date and I had grabbed the wrong ad when I clipped my coupons and they were all outdated! Now that makes you feel like a rock scientist! lol

  2. Oh, geez, there’s another one for you. I got so caught up in my stupid moment that I forgot to tell you how absolutely adorable your card is! lol I love it! So cute and your coloring and stitching are just beautiful.

  3. What a cute card! Love the funny post! I’m forever doing stupid things! I think it’s a mom thing. My sister, who doesn’t have any kids, isn’t at all absentminded, forgetful, whatever you want to call it! But me?! Well, I’m just like you! I was just talking to my mom the other day about this one movie that I can’t wait to come to theaters, and we just saw a commercial for it, and I had no idea what the name of it was! Then, today we were eating lunch, and my dad happened to mention Secretariat, and it was like a lightbulb turned on! THAT was the movie I was trying to think of! DUH!!!!!
    But, I’ve left milk out all day, left a candle burning after I’ve left the house for the afternoon, lots of crazy stuff! LOL!

  4. I love your card; adorable as always and thanks for the laughs!

    Hmmm…WHICH dumb moment should I share with you?

    Um, let’s focus on those that I did during my pregnancies. All 3 pregnancies I threw my keys in the trash can – YEAH, 3 times!!! Found them all 3 times, but really? I’m sure my husband thought the babies were sucking away any brain cells I had. LOL

    THEN in my 3rd pregnancy, I locked the keys in the car with it running – oh yeah, I’m amazing.

    So….feel at home; all is well. LOL

  5. First off… LOVE the card!!!

    Now about that stupid thing…. SURE I’ve done stupid stuff but I just can NOT make you feel any better about how stupid yours was by trying to top it, that was pretty good!!!!!!! LMAO! You KNOW I love ya!!! LMAO

  6. LOVE this card!! Love all the papers and the layout and especially that adorable face you drew on the pumpkin – just perfect! BTW – I’ve totally sewed my whole card shut before too! And I fixed it exactly how you did and got a really fat heavy card! I make mistakes with my cards all the time, but as long as I can fix them, it’s all good!

  7. Cuter than cute! Love it!

  10. Cutie witchie card! Ooh…bad day. Wish I could forget this one, but one day when I was not awake yet (I am so not a morning person), I saw my husband had left his cell phone on the counter. Being the helpful person I am, I picked up the phone & called him. Duh…the cell wrang in my hand. We could all write a book with those “senior moments”!
