CAS Mix Up August Challenge~Stamping, Sprays + Your Choice (my choices: stamping = the images and sentiment; sprays = background water-droplets; choice = die-cutting and blending)


I'm on a quick three day visit to see my mom and, of course, my adorable niece and nephew...having a most fantastic time!  Heading back tomorrow...sighhhh...but returning in a couple weeks...yayyy!  Of course,  yet again falling behind on commenting, but planning to catch up during next week's visit to see my mom-in-law....

Thank you so much for spending time with me today; your visit brings me immense joy!

Hi there! Fabulous blending and a friendly Halloween card...cute images! You are so busy, you wear me out! I have a vision of you standing in the kitchen (tired legs) crafting, then whizzing in one direction to visit family, then the other direction to visit hubby's family! You certainly spread the sunshine where you go!! Take care on your travels. hugs xx

Congratulations on your GD at CTS, Carol ... and on such a fabulous card! Such fun little images and such amazing blending and splattering ... so cute! Just enjoyed a gorgeous meander through all your recent awesome cards ... what a delight ... I found all those sweet shaker cards especially delicious! Bon weekend! Hugs, Anita :)

Jeanne said...

Oh Carol, this is SO sweet and delightfully fun. I like Halloween to be cute and fun, not scary. That sign post is so neat! Oh and your little ghost and mummy make me think these could be your niece and nephew all ready to trick or treat. That spider could be aunty making sure they are safe! (People generally don't like to mess with spiders, right?) Anyway, you card is pure delight! I know you are having a wonderful time with your family! Big hugs and happy weekend! :)
