Magnolia Goblin Sitting Martha

Hello sweet readers,

How is your weekend going? Are you feeling Fall? The northern part of our state has already had snow! I hope that means that there will be a snowy winter! I'm already hoping for snow, and the leaves haven't fallen from our trees yet! All I can say is that it is "Oatmeal and Crockpot Season!" YES!!! I've been making oatmeal in the slow cooker. I put it on before we go to sleep, and it's ready in the morning! If you want the recipe, just let me know! The last batch had a bag of frozen raspberries in the mix. DH loves raspberries. What a great way to get my sweetie to eat his oatmeal! I want to experiment with some other flavors - like peach, pina colada, and how could I include bacon? Oh, I know, I could add it just before serving so it wouldn't get all mushy! LOL Bacon and brown sugar? Hmmm... LOL

I have a fun card to share with you today. It features Magnolia's Goblin, Sitting Martha. You can find the whole set of Goblins at Magnolia-licious. I think she is just the cutest! If you look at her left foot, you can see her little green toe sticking out from the hole in her sock. I even painted her little toenail red! I wish I could be more consistent with my coloring of hair. I love how Martha's hair turned out on this card. Hair is just hit or miss with me. As they say, "Practice makes perfect!" Hopefully, I will eventually get some consistency. Here she is:

I chose to use some traditional Halloween colors - purple, orange, black. There is a hidden tag behind the mat. I added some orange rhinestones to the black grapevine wreath on which Martha sits. The purple brads are Doodlebug Sugar Coated Brads, so they sparkle. I used paper, flowers, ribbon, and embellies from my stash. I have a plastic container with all my Halloween goodies in it, so I can store and grab as needed. The wreath is by Memory Box and is called the Grapevine Wreath.
