Edward who?

Good Morning! I'm back today with a new card.

My husband's coworker needed a card for a friends birthday who just happens to be a huge Twilight fan. She wanted me to poke a little bit of fun at Twilight. Unfortunately, I don't have a huge collection of vampire stamps and, as a matter of fact, until a couple of weeks ago, I didn't have even one! Don't get me wrong, I love vampires, particularly of the True Blood variety and even more particularly of the Eric Northman variety. Speaking of True Blood...was anyone else disappointed in the season finale? Someone needs to tell the writers that not every character needs a major story arc. Too much going on almost to the point of ridiculous. The story has strayed so much from the books that it is almost unrecognizable. Please, oh please, Mr. Alan Ball, get it together next season!

Anyway, I where was I? Oh, yes, I didn't own even one vampire stamp. However, lo and behold, my sweet, sweet mom mailed me the new Kraftin' Kimmies Halloween set and there just so happened to be a vampire stamp in the mix. Yay, mom! It's a good one, too! It is sort of a large image, so I really didn't need to add any other accouterments to it. I colored it with Copics, but for the life of me, I can't recall which colors I used. I've really got to start writing them down. Inside, the card will say "Edward who?" I think that's sort of a subtle poke at Twilight, don't you?

That's it for today. I am hoping I'll be back tomorrow with something new, but it seems I just jinx myself when I make those claims, so I am going to refrain. See you tomorrow...maybe ;D

  8. Hi Cheryl! Heard you got to spend time with my mom at CP2 today. I love your Drac! I've stamped mine out and he is waiting to be colored. I love how you colored the inside of his cape green, it looks very vintage, like you could touch it and it would feel velvety.
