Bob came home on Friday afternoon - six days earlier than was expected. And as is the case, we have been on the go ever since. Friday we went out to dinner. Saturday we drove to Lowe's in Sikeston MO (about two hours away) to pick up a few things we needed towards getting the house back in shape. We were on the go for twelve hours yesterday!

Today, I begin pulling everything out of the office that isn't in place, add in two cubby units in the sewing corner then put everything back -TODAY! So up before the sun to get today's and Tuesday's post up. I haven't decided what I'm doing for the 13 days of Halloween - Mixed Media post just yet. I'll be thinking about that as I pull stuff out of the office ;-)

In the mean time, here's today's card:

One of the reasons I love this blog in parallel to my Stampin' UP! blog is that I can use retired and non-su products here. Forcing me to use from my stash.  This card is a perfect example.

I used all Recollections cardstock. This is a black base 4.25x5.5". After folding, I used my Martha Stewart spiderweb border bunch. I lined the inside of the card with kind of a moon-glow yellow/orange cross to pull the same color in the mat behind the cauldron image. That image is one of the new ones in the Michael's Tower Bins for $1.50. I colored the top in a Japanese version of Wink Of Stella in a sparkly bright green. The bordering papers are cut from last year's SU Pick Your Poison Designer Series Paper. 

I didn't notice the 'stars' on the card mat until after I'd uploaded. They dusted of. But kind of cool as an initial effect :-D

Are you making Halloween cards? Passing out treats? What's your favorite Halloween treat? 
Creative Blessings!

  1. Hi Kelly! Love the card. I love Halloween too. Sometimes I send out cards. They are so fun. Sadly, I don't have trick or treaters coming by my house much anymore. It used to be such fun to see them all dressed up.
