It's Zombie Time!!

 This is a self portrait .... of me ... without my Starbucks!! :)

Hee hee!  I jest, I jest!!  My oldest daughter, Kaitlyn,  loves Zombies .... bordering on obsessed, I'd say!  She is one of the biggest fans of The Walking Dead which she's watched faithfully since show #1 along side my husband ... yep, that's where she gets it from :)  So of course I had to make her a commemorative card for her 'special cards from mommy' collection to break up the monotony of filling out college applications, fellowships and grants and juggling her classes, rehearsals and long hours.  I'm so proud of her and truly do just love her to pieces!

And bits.  And pieces.  


I was so excited to ink up my Zelda the Zombie from Kraftin Kimmie - did my best to follow their sketch of the week but couldn't find my container with the oval nesties. So I just had to wing it and even though it's not spot on and has my own twists, I love it :)  It was perfect for what I was trying to accomplish! Her favorite color is purple so I went more with a purple theme over the green I intended and I love how this turned out :)  I know Kaitlyn will, too! 

Have a Zombie-licious day!  We're staying in doors, safe from the wrath of Sandy :)

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  1. Kelly, this is so much fun and just as cute as can be! I can't really believe you look like that though before that coffee! LOL!
    Your daughter will love it!
    I'm not much of a zombie lover, but this is CUTE!

  2. Kelly, this is a great ZOMBIE card ! I´m sure your DD will love it. I like the green head :-) and all the pink.
    I´m not sure if it looks like you before you get a coffee - take a picture next time ;-)

  3. How fun is she! I had never seen that line of stamps before, so that was a a great intro to me. She is so fun, and I love how you did the layout and the fun paper etc. I feel like her without my tea in the am. I hear you....Enjoy the weekend.

  4. What a fun zombie card! Love the colors! If all zombies were as cute as her and this card, then perhaps I wouldn't have to sleep with the light on! :) Hugs and happy weekend, sweet friend!

  5. Fun card, Kelly! I, too, am a zombie w/o my coffee! My boys are always telling me about "Humans vs. Zombies" battles on their college campuses. Sounds like fun!

  6. This is a brilliant project and I love the image you've used - I have a huge collection of Kimmie's myself!

    Thanks for joining us at That Craft Place this week ♥

  7. Your fabulously personalised card will, I am sure be a huge hit with your sister. Have fun this Halloween.

  8. Super cute and an adorable image! I'm betting your daughter will be thrilled!

  9. Fun inside and out! Well done! Thanks for playing along with us for the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge!

  10. What a fun card :-) - love your use of purple and green!

  12. How fun is this card?! Bits and pieces!!!!LOVE it! If any girl zombie can be cute, you have achieved it!! I love the personal touches you added to make this extra special for your DD.

    LOL at the coffee comment! I don't know if I look like her, but I'm sure I act like her!!

    I saw a shirt a while back with a zombie on it and the caption was "I love you for your brains." Thought that was too cute, even if he was a little creepy!!

  13. I need to seriously speak with your daughter, I am a Walking Dead # 1 Fan! LOL My life is revolving around it! There is a "run for your Life" 5k Coming up where you get chased by Zombies! I think that would shave some serious minutes off my time! LOL!

    Super spooky card! Carri~Abusybee

  14. Love this zombie card, and so will Kaitlyn! The purple and green are fresh and lively, even if it is a zombie card, ha ha! Perfect sentiment inside too! Glad that Sandy is finally moving away from your corner of the world. Now we all hold our breath.

  15. This image made me chuckle. I think I look like that most days LOL.. Fantastic.

    Thanks for sharing with us in the Craftymess 'Haloween' challenge with us.
