Happy Half-O-Ween with the God of the Dead!

The sounds of the ages before and after float hauntingly over the fabulous Anubis!  God of the Dead until he was replaced in the Middle Kingdom by Osiris, he assumes many roles in the death process as he rules over his subjects.  Protector of the deceased and their tombs as well as associating himself with the mummifications process!   All done while holding himself regally above all of life and its subjects!  This fabulous Anubis is brilliantly given life by LeighSBDesigns especially for the half way mark to our most favorite holiday or as we call it, Half-O-Ween!  Yes, Half-O-Ween signifies only six more months until Halloween!  And we all are always ready for that!  So welcome and enjoy and participate in the LeighSBDesigns Half-O-Ween Blog Hop!

With some words from the Book of the Dead, nighttime reading for this dear fellow, he lives among the smoke and rubble of the history of the Egyptian Gods.  You can find him in all his glory at LeighSBDesigns Boutique ready to come celebrate Half-OWeen with you and your crafting goodies!

Hope to blog hop to your blog as you join in the fun with the:

It's Monochromatic Time at Ike's World Challenge

Welcome and I hope your May is going along swimmingly!  At Ike's World Challenges we are going into monochromatic or all hues of one pops of another color allowed OR Anything Goes for #108 :)   I am using the oh so lovely Angel #5 and I have colored her up and put her into a fold up card all in pinks.  Also there is a Birthday Sale going on at Ike's Art with 50% off on images taken at the register!  Shop HERE!

Using a template for the folding card from Stampington Magazine, I cut two of them out of the outside paper and the inside paper.  A tiny cloud and sun and the word "Believe" give a hint of what is on the inside.

I attached my colored image on white cardstock to the middle of the card.  Before attaching anything to front or inside I inked all edges with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

I think this will be a lovely graduation card or just a pick me up card for someone special.  Now we want to see your creations for May!  Inspire us!

Janette's Monthly Challenge at Dragons Lair Designs!

This kit makes me smile with sunshine when I am playing with it!  That's a pretty cool thing to be able to say about a kit that is sooo inexpensive PLUS Janette is giving away a Freebie addition to the kit on the Dragons Lair Inspiration Blog!!  How cool is that?  Here is my latest (I am addicted to this) play with the fabulous Citrus kit! 

I am making a digital scrapbook of our latest trip to Japan and this kit is working out so well!  I added two photos of my son as photographer and observing the customs of the temple at Ueno Park.

Why not run to the Dragons Lair Inspiration Blog HERE and grab the freebie and then run, well, you may walk if holding scissors! to the Dragons Lair Designs Etsy Store and buy the mini kit "Citrus".  Then create away!  Remember if digital play is not your thing, then these kits make wonderful elements to print out and cut to make cards...anything you want!

And here is my first fun page with this kit :)
