BOO!...City Crafter Challenge #231~Pumpkins, The Paper Players #216~Halloween, Crazy 4 Challenges #256~Orange, Purple, Green

Hello...

I'm thinking I should change my blog name to "In the Nick of Time," give that, yet again, that's what I'm doing with my card today.  Hmmm, nahh...I'll stick with what I have, because if I adopted this new name, I'd likely become even more last minute...

Today's simple little number, sporting some orange, green and purple - very stylish Halloween colours - and an oh-so-scary jack o'lantern -  is heading off to three challenges:

City Crafter Challenge #231~Pumpkins (and I just re-read the challenge rules -they were only very visible in bold blue...gahhh...The pumpkins are not supposed to be totally orange! Mine is, although he does have a black face and green stem. Oh well, I'll share anyway...no need to count me as a contender, wonderful CCCB team. *palm smack on my forehead*

Crazy 4 Challenges #256~Orange, Purple, Green

and The Paper Players #216~Halloween


Here's my simple little pumpkin...


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

I truly think I should ban you from participating in that same challenges that I enter. I want to have a chance! And your cards are just so perfect, there's no way anything else will be noticed. And your use of the diecut letters just give me an amazing idea for my Halloween goody bags for my team at work. You are so inspiring, Carol! And you're also very productive - each morning when I open my news reader app, I'm actually a little bit excited because I hope to find another card you made. It's just so great to read your blog posts – and have a good laugh – and then learn something new and simply be amazed.

Time for a few more comments before I tuck myself in for the night. These. 4:30 am wake up calls are killing me!! Little "Jack" is just so adorable perched on top of those fantastic layered tags! And just how does that "boo" for on there just so perfectly?! The pretty bling just finishes the card off boo-tifully
