Mummy, Mummy, Mummy...Retro sketches #186, Just Us Girls #315~Colour Week, Cupcake Inspirations #332~Bone, Ocean, Shadow, CAS(E) this Sketch #145, AAA Cards #50~CAS Halloween, Simon Says Monday Challenge~Monster Mash

Hello,

A quick post to share three cards that have a common 'theme', but before I do that:  Yayyyyyy Blue Jays!! So excited!!

My cutie-patootie mummy stamp came out to play, play and play...and I decided, in all three cases, not to make him 'scary.'  He's dressed in  rather colourful bandages, as you'll see.

Mummy #1 is for CAS(E) this Sketch #145


(Had do use some of my Halloween patterned papers...)

Mummy #2 and #3 drew their design inspiration from Retro sketches #186 (although I used a 'spooky' sign post in place of the tag...improvisation *grin*)


Mummy #2 followed the colour scheme over at Just Us Girls #315~Colour Week



With Mummy #3, I tried to get as close to the palette at Cupcake Inspirations #332~Bone, Ocean, Shadow as I could (challenging!!).



NOTE:  Honoured and Thrilled to selected as one of the Cupcake Sweeties. THANK YOU!

I'm also sharing over at AAA Cards #50~CAS Halloween



 Off to watch the Cubs and Mets....

So thrilled you dropped by; you've definitely brightened my day!
Hugs,

  6. I don't follow baseball much. I just know our Rockies came in just about dead last. LOL But...Yay for you! :) Was it the Blue Jays who were in a game where the 7th inning lasted about an hour or so with a couple of fights? I only know that because I was at a game night with a friend and they had it on their tv. That was wild. Anyway, enough talk about baseball that I don't really follow. Let's talk about your fabulous cards. I adore how you used the same image and colored it differently to help you achieve some terrific looking cards. Way to get the most bang for your stampy buck! Excellent work, my friend and best of luck in those challenges!! :) Hugs!

  32. Sorry I am so late to the party, but I think I am all caught up now. Such a treat to see all your adorable Halloween cards. Good thing Halloween is almost come and gone, or I would be tempted to order some new goodies to CASE what you have going on here.
