Ghostly Haunts at My Desk

I think fall has arrived here in southern AZ.  It's gotten quite a bit cooler, highs in the mid 70's F and today is to be cloudy with rain later, maybe even thunder storms.  Good day to stay in and visit desks, get some cleaning done, wash the sheets, visit some desks, vacuum, visit....  You get the picture.  And if you're wondering about the visiting desks it's weekly Desker's Day!  You get the opportunity to visit desks all over the planet, well, the U.S. and Europe mostly.  This is all brought together by Queen Desker Julia at the Stamping Ground.  Please click on her What is WOYWW? page at the top of her blog for more info.

I thought I was done making Halloween cards but nope.  Today's card and the one on my desk (drying) were needed for a couple monthly swaps I take part in.

I still haven't worked on the red coffee cups and 1 plus the stencils and paint pen are still on the far left.  Just too much to do right now.  Next to those are my paper trimmer, a small pile of paper and some cards for a Be Brave challenge taking place at the FSJ head office.  You can look back a post or two for more info on that.  Pretty much center is a stack of stamps and coordinating dies that I want to play with.  Then, far right on my stack of scrap paper, is my card waiting to dry.  To the back of everything is my Red Cricut, cleaner pad and squirt bottle, and who knows what.

And today's card.  I've been enjoying the cutesy Halloween cards I've been making.  I don't do scary.  All stamps, dies, inks, and paper by FSJ.

I added some Stardust Black Gel pen to the eyes for some glimmer.  And, in case you're wondering about the name of the stamp set, it's Ghostly Haunts.  No links here for the products because that's a no no.

Ok, I'm done with my post.  Please pop over to the Stamping Ground and enjoy the tour of desks!  I'll be getting my coffee and heading over there shortly, too!

My day today has remarkable similarities to yours. Amazing?! See to a few jobs around the house, visit some desks, get some lunch, visit some desks, pop across the valley to pick up a prescription for hubby, visit...
Well done - enjoy all the fun on your desk.
Take care. God bless.

I like how you did their eyes, all nice a glowy. We've had so much thunder (and rain) lately. It is crazy. I have a kitty scared of thunder and she was hiding behind the toilet when I got up in the night. The other kitty was keeping her company. Usually my scaredy cat hides under the covers, but they get locked out of the bedroom at night. No WOYWW for me again today. I'll some more H'ween to share if I ever get that far.

Love your pumpkins Carol and the cards are great. You see women can do this...... clean the house, do the shopping, visit friends and still fit in time to blog, now a man! that's different Lol! They would do one of those jobs and it would probably take all day. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 24

Hi Carol. I have a friend that lives in Queen Creek. When she comes to visit me in Santa Fe, New Mexico in July she usually has to wear a sweatshirt! That just cracks me up! Winter is raising it's head here and I think we'll get below freezing during the evenings. The last few days we've gotten slammed with rain.

Your Halloween card is very cute. Oh, and I like your schedule -- fitting in desk visits between other tasks.

I'm finally getting around to some desks today - better late than never.
Happy belated WOYWW
Hugs, Kay (38)
