OWH Sketch #165 - updated

What a crazy few weeks this has been.  A couple of projects at work kept me busy and then trying to get income taxes completed sure occupied my time..... and then of course making cards for OWH.  I sent a box to Kris that completed Mother/Father's Day, so I'm good for a little while on "holiday" deadlines.

Looking at deadlines for OWH, I decided to get a little preface for Halloween.  As I write this, snow is starting to fall here in the Indianapolis (IN) area.  The predictions are up to 8 inches, the way it is coming down, I have a feeling they may have gotten this one right....

So here is my submission for the sketch, I had wanted to put "googlie eyes" on this little guy, but for the life of me, I can't find them.  So, if I find them I'll add them and update the picture.


 
 

 
 
I hope everyone has a great week!  For those of you getting this winter storm, stay safe!
 
 ** here is the googly/wiggle eyes.... Hobby Lobby had an entire section of them with difference sizes.  Of course, I had to buy a couple of sizes... just in case I needed a different size in the future. These may be a little big, so I did buy a smaller size, but since this was the first one, I will adjust the size in the future.

How cute is that? I'm so envious of people who work so far ahead! Yes, googly eyes would be the perfect finishing touch!

Joanie, This card came out adorable and I think the googlie eyes will even add more to it. You have put a bug in my bonnet now. I think I should start with the fall holiday cards. It comes around so very fast. Hope you don't get all 8 inches of snow. We are scheduled for just 1-2 inches Monday night into Tuesday morning. I'm hoping that's the last storm of the year. Enjoy your week ahead.

It's never too early for Halloween and that bat is one of my favorites. Very cute! Good luck with the weather.

This is adorable! I am impressed that you are done with both Mom and Dad cards! I am just finishing up my mom cards! I should get started on fall cards, but I am trying to get into a summery mode! I see on some blogs that some gals make Christmas cards all year round-- I may try it! And sorry about your snow...and I am ignoring Donna's comment that we may get more snow this week in the northeast.....done with snow, I tell ya, done!

Super cute Joanie, it really makes me giggle! Terrific CAS card and the eyeball paper really makes a statement. Google Eyes are getting hard to find, but they would be cute on this.

Thanks everyone for your comments. We survived all the snow and it's gone now, with temps in the 50's on this Easter Sunday.
One of my resolutions for 2013 was to try and do a better job for OWH and get cards into my person (Kris) in a more timely manner! And of course with the price of postage going up, I have tried to look ahead and combine some of the holidays.......
