i want my mummy...

Happy Friday...Did anyone watch The Office last night? It was awesome! ...wicka, wicka, wicka what? It was one of the best episodes yet! :) My hubby decided to watch the presidential debate tonight and I am bored so I am gonna do some stamping but thought I would first post this mummy card I made. I showed my Stamp Club girls this card. I wanted to show that you can make a cute Halloween card without Halloween stamps. I saw a few different versions of this or something similar on Splitcoast. For mine I just cut some vanilla paper into 1 inch strips and distressed the edges with my distresser. I inked the edges with creamy caramel and started laying them to look like a wrapped mummy. I used my circle punches for the eyes. It was really pretty easy.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend!! I am gonna be hanging out with the family. Shawn leaves town on Sunday for 2 weeks and it's also Tyson's 8th birthday! :)

what's in it?...
