Tombstone Card & Simon Says Stamp: Bingo

Good morning!  We had a great time at the Gravenstein Apple Fair yesterday - I had my first apple fritters... oh my heavenly goodness!  hee hee   Back East, an apple fritter is like a big pastry or donut that has little pieces of apple in it.  Here, it's more like a sliced apple that has been deep fried and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.  It was delicious.  We walked around for a few hours then came home and went back over for dinner.  Jeremy had a few beers and was feeling a little tipsy - when we got home, he was making the kids laugh hysterically (he never drinks).  Trevor says "Dad, maybe you should drink more often."  We had a great day.

So on to the art!  I had a blast making this card for a challenge:

**NOTE** It has come to my attention that the true artist of this image is Judit.
I made my card into a tombstone shape, I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and Prismacolor markers.  I added a gothic cross image I found online for the background, and attached a silver gothic cross charm to it.  I dragged my tombstone edges through black ink, added some gray pearl stickers, and some word stickers.  I love how this came out!  :)  

And I also made a little ATC for the:

Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Bingo Board

I used Die Cuts (from MFT), "Free Space" (digi image/button), and Glitter.  
 Hope you're all having a great weekend!  Peace.
