Gimme Some Skulls *amuse-bouche*



We're still talking Halloween today. I'm not quite ready for fall but it is just a matter of time before I see Halloween decor at the stores (I've already seen lots of Back-to-School stuff which is depressing since my kids have only been out of school for a little over two weeks!). Despite my hesitation to decorate for fall, I'm really excited for the stamps being shared today on the AMN blog (a couple of my creations on there today).

Today I'm sharing part of a stamp from a larger cling stamp that can be used to make invitations or large cards. I stamped the skull in lots of colors (inspired by the Tuesday Trigger on Moxie Fab World). Kinda bright, I know, but perfect for Dia de los Muertos! I decided to make them into a banner after my five year old saw the cut out skulls laying on my desk in a curved line and suggested making a, "you know, one of those banner things if you put some string on it." Gotta love my little artist :)

I pondered for a long time over the sentiment. I wasn't sure, so I went with the old stand-by, but there is bound to be something else better. Suggestions?

I'll have some more fun tomorrow!
