Wishing You A FAB*BOO*LOUS Night

Welcome to Studio 5380, and thanks for stopping by.

It's Monday...again....{insert sigh here} and I'm tearing my house apart trying to get everything clean and organized before my week gets so busy.  I love a clean house, but not so much the process involved in achieving that clean house :(   So, to motivate myself, I treat myself - one hour of cleaning equals one hour of crafty time. You know, kinda like when dealing with a toddler? Pick up your toys, get a cookie...that kinda thing.  Works for me!  And since I'm writing this post on my one crafty hour before tackling the toilets (ugh)...let's get started....

I worked on this card for a couple of days, inking up different parts and letting things dry.  I created a huge inky mess, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

I  used the following products from My Favorite Things:
* Spooky House Die Set 
* Frightful Fence Die Set
* Stitched Basic Edges Die Set
* Spooky Sentiments Stamp Set

Here's a photo of the inside of my card.

I really meant to write down all the Distress Inks I used on this card, but believe it or not, I actually cleaned up and put them away before getting my blog post up.  There were a lot of inks involved in this one...messy, messy, messy.

As always, I appreciate your visit.  But, the clock is ticking and my crafty time is almost over so I better get moving. Have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon....
