Stir Up Some Fun!

Wednesday already? And September 1st? Time continues to fly by! Before you know it, fall will be here and Halloween just around the corner. It is raining here today.....which was much needed, and the temps are supposed to cool off a bit. Thank goodness, because my classroom thermostat has been reading well over 90 degrees! Too hot to concentrate and learn!

I have a Crafty Secret's card to share with you today. I used the new Halloween set called, Costume Cuties. I love this cutie pie witch. She was colored with Copics, and translucent glitter was added to her hat and cauldron. I used my circle Spellbinders to cut her out, left the die in place and airbrushed in orange, red, and yellow. The paper is by Basic Grey (DP), Papertrey Ink (cream) , and Bazzil. (green)


I added a few beads to my bat pin.........
I noticed my counter is nearing 100,000.......which should have been 200,000......the last time it hit 1o0,00, the whole counter cleared and I had to start back at zero! UGH! So it isn't really accurate.....but it's all good. So what does this mean? I think BLOG CANDY is long overdue. It has been quite some time since I've done a giveaway. Be sure to check back tomorrow!
Have a FABULOUS Wednesday!

I love the effect of the glitter on the hat and cauldron. You wouldn't think glitter and Halloween went together but it looks great.

Heat is classrooms is a big issue here (Brisbane, Australia). I often think it's not fair on kids to expect them to learn in such a hot environment. I think air conditioning might be a big issue for us when we choose our son's school.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
