I've Got My Eyes on You!


Hello my crafty friends, hope your Sunday is going well. I'm home resting from my trip to VA with my retired teacher friends. Boy did we have a blast. 9 women, what do you think?!!! But I'm glad to be back home with my girls, I really missed my fur babies and was afraid they would forget me since I've been elderly sitting for a week and then was gone for a week in VA. But they didn't, thank goodness. lol Also tomorrow is Dwayne's death anniversary. The trip was a good diversion from dwelling on it. The grands are going to let a balloon go with a note in them to send up to Heaven for Papaw. It's going to be an emotional go of it but I will get through it like I got through the year because I can't change it, so I have to go with it. sigh

 It's my turn to post over at Cardz TV Gallery today and I've got a Halloween card for you. I went really simple with this card, which I was inspired from Pinterest. This will be a card for one of my grands or nephews. I might even make a couple more because I think some of the nephews might get a kick out of it and because it was a simple card to make. Here are the Cardz TV stamp sets I used on this card and you can find them here.





I hope you like my card for today and I hope you will keep coming back to Cardz TV Gallery each day for more inspiration using Cardz TV Stamps!  As always thank you for stopping by for a spell, your comments always bring sunshine to my day! 



Crafty hugs,

Sometimes simple is best. This came out so cute! I think I need to dig out my googly eyes. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Brenda so glad you had a good time away with the girls, and that your fur babies still love you, cute faces on those stamps. Don't like Halloween myself, but love those faces. Prayers for you dear friend, a year where you've grown stronger in the Lord, a more beautiful woman, yes hard, but it will be worth it all when we see Jesus...
hugs dear friend, Shaz in Oz. X

Your card is so cute, Brenda. It's a really fun Halloween creation. I'm glad you had a good time with your friends. I know it's good to be back with your fur babies! I'm sending prayers to you and your family as you face the anniversary of your husband's passing. God bless you all.

Welcome back Brenda, we've missed you, but I'm sure we're all in agreement you needed this time to enjoy life and learn to laugh again. I'll be sending up a little prayer for Dwayne and you tomorrow that things will become less painful over time. It's difficult to realize a year has gone by already.
The card is really fun with all those googly eyes and I love the inside of the card too! Someone will get a big kick out of this card when they receive it :) Have a great week ahead!

OMgosh what a super cute card :)
So glad that you had time to spend just relaxing and having fun :) It's always nice to get away! A sweet thing to do and a great way to deal with the grief of the day too. Hugs and prayers my friend, Tina

Hello my friend!! I'm back from vacation catching up on all of your beautiful projects I've missed while I've been gone!! I wanted to leave a comment on each one but blogger has decided I'm a spammer and I have to go through the click on "not a robot" button and the picture captcha. Ugh. So I'm sorry I can't comment on each project but they are all amazing!! I especially love the sweet picture of Savannah!! She's so beautiful!! And I am saying a prayer for you today and thinking of you. I hope you are doing okay and know that Dwayne is looking down on you with love.

Your card is so fun!! I love the eyes and the sentiments!! Totally makes me smile!! So creative!! Hugs dear friend!! Thinking of you,

Lisa

Simple but so adorable. I bet the kids will get a kick out of this card Brenda.

Glad you had a good time with your friends. Always fun to spend some time with girlfriends ... usually lots of laughs.

I know this is a tough time for you ... I'm sending you a big hug!! Sending balloons with notes for Papaw is so sweet. Bless them. Take care and lean on the family tomorrow. Love, Loll

Simple, CAS and so fun, Brenda ... all those eyes are fabulous! Sounds as though you had a wonderful time away ... what fun with eight friends! What a lovely thing for the grands to do, I'm sure Dwight will be looking down, smiling on you all ... thinking of you, my friend, and keeping you in my prayers. Hugs, Anita :)

Love the CAS style of this cutie. Brilliant idea to use the google eyes with the sentiments, and I really like the way you've displayed this one for photographing! Very happy that you had a good time with the friends on your trip, and hope the balloon release also enabled all of you to release some of your grief. Another milestone that you've made it through, and become stronger. So proud of you. TFS & Hugs. MM

I LOVE this idea, Brenda! What a fun idea with the googly eyes! Simple yet so effective! Glad you had a good trip. I'm sure your "girls" were overjoyed to see you when you got home.

Hi Brenda! Came over after seeing your very kind comment on my Time Out card on Anita's blog - thank you so much! I hope you'll join us!

I'm so glad you got to have fun with your friends! You are in my prayers my friend. This card is so cute! I love the different sets of eyes and the little face inside! Great job!
Hugs,

Guess who...yep, me, the Queen of Late! I'm thrilled that you had a splendid time with your gal-friends; I can just imagine the shenanigans, the laughter, the tears, the overall FUN you had! Hope you've come back rejuvenated from the wonderful bonding! As for your fur-babies: no way would they forget you! You're their most special person in the whole world. The balloon release for Dwayne: heart-smiling! I know he'll love it - and so will my dad because I believe the two of them share 'farm talk' on a regular basis as they're watching over us! Now, your card: googly-eyed awesome! The speech bubbles are fantastic! Yes, you'll need to make more: these will be a Halloween hit! Love that patchwork gourd! Sending hugs and prayers - as always! Your strength is such an inspiration...
Hugs and love~c

Hi Brenda!! I've missed you, my friend!! I've been traveling as well and helping in my kids' class Mon.- Fri. which has left me with NO time for crafting or blog catching up... I LOVE your Halloween card!! It's so adorable!! The inside is just as adorable. I love that face set!! As soon as I have 10 minutes to spare, I'll catch up on what I've missed so I'll talk to you soon. Hugs!!
