Tilda with a pet spider


My blogging took a backseat this week to the kids' school stuff. I was overwhelmed with paperwork to fill out for both of them. My gosh they send home lots of papers! I think I'm caught up for now. They both seem to like school so far, but come home exhausted! Liam has cried before getting on the bus both days, but comes home happy. He told me today, he really missed me while he was in school. I thought that was so cute!

I just discovered these fabulous sketch challenges posted on the blog, Lord Have Mercy, every Tuesday. I checked out this blog, cause she is one of the new Verve Divas. Her work is so beautiful and she has great challenges to boot! This is my take on the sketch for this week, MTSC38.

I haven't inked up this little Tilda yet. I bought her last winter and it was way past Halloween, so I'm trying to start a bit early this year and get some Halloween cards done! Her pet spider is covered in fun flock, so he looks a little creepy. It's funny though, I don't mind spiders even big ones. Now my husband on the other hand is scared to death of them, I think it's pretty funny!

Thanks so much for stopping by and looking! Have a wonderful Friday!

Paper: Wild Wasabi, Only Orange, Basic Black, PTI ssw, K and Co. Halloween paper pack
