Happy Halloween Smooches...Crazy 4 Challenges #256, Unscripted Sketch #5, Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge~Smooches, Paper Smooches~Anything goes

Happy Friday...and Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada! Yayy...We're staying home this weekend, as we have cyclo-cross races here and in Calgary. Family time is next weekend. Excitement is mounting....

*Palm smack on the forehead* A couple days back, I created a card for Curtain Call's Smooches challenge,


and, since I'm on a bit of a Halloween card diet (have to justify some of my recent Halloween-themed purchases), I made a smoochy Halloween card.  Of course, making the card is one thing; getting it posted in time is another.  Missed. the. cut-off!  Yeesh....Still, my card fits a couple other challenges, so we're scooting over to those immediately, just in case my timing is wonky yet again:

Crazy 4 Challenges #256 (apparently I'm smitten with their colour combination...)


Unscripted Sketch #5 (yayyy...the US challenges are back!!)







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

Hey girlfriend! Sorry I'm so far behind in commenting...it's been a bit hectic around here lately. What an adorable little Halloween card!! Love those little cobwebs and how you've dressed up Miss Owl! Not scary at all, just delightful! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and enjoy the racing. Stay warm dear friend. Bev

Sooooo darn cute! The spider webs are awesome - especially where you have placed them! Mr. Wise Owl (who is too cute to be spooky) is sportin' some mighty impressive plumage!

Glad to hear that I'm not the only one that knocks on closed doors! I've tried keeping a list of 'cut-off dates' but never remember to check it!

You would have thought that by now I have learned never to drink something while I look at your blog post! That bird is just hilarious! I have the same stamps it and I never thought to color it was Halloween colors – that just chose whole brilliant you are, Carol! You just come up with the craziest and most awesome ideas to stretch your stamps. Great job on this card!

Oh Carol, my apologies for missing all these posts!!! I'm a bad girl but not all my fault. lol I have to explain, I follow you by email and blogger isn't playing nice and sending me my email notifications to all the bloggers I follow, which is a lot. I'm so bummed because I know I have missed a lot, but with following so many I can't remember all of them. Of course I remember you, but it takes this brain a while to know that I've missed out on your posts. I could scream when blogger does this! lol Now to catch up on all your wonderful posts. This is a super cute Halloween card!! I love that cute owl and those webs, but it is the cute sentiment that I love. Smooches back to ya! Hugs, Brenda
