TSSC 196

Good morning, Friends! I hope you are having a super start to the weekend! Nick enjoyed his day off from school. It seemed so unnatural to have him home and Pat was out working. I kind of forgot what day it was! I wanted to sleep in this morning but couldn't. A migraine is upon me and I am trying to nip it before the soccer game a little later today. Ugh! And I wanted to stamp some, too! Yesterday I was on a roll but had to stop to go to the grocery store. Maybe today I will try to keep the mojo going. But there is college football on... We will see!!

Today's card is one that I did for Mary Jo's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge. Becky had loaned me this set, Batty For You, and I wanted to try to use it before giving it back. I think Mary Jo's sketch called out for me to use this set! Mary Jo's sketch has an extra layer than mine but I just could make another layer work. And I don't have any designer paper for Halloween. I know - shame on me! This card also works for the LNS 1-2-3 challenge. That is such a super fun challenge! Even if you aren't a part of LNS you should try this challenge out (1 stamp set, 2 embellishments, 3 colors). Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Have a super day!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Batty For You; Paper- Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Whisper White; Ink- Lucky Limeade, Basic Black; Accessories- Basic Black taffeta ribbon, Spider Web embossing folder, scallop edge border punch, glimmer brad, 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop circle punch, dimensionals 


  1. Love you card! Love the embossed web background paired with the stamp! I have this set and hardly ever use it anymore! You've inspired me to get it out again and make some of these! Great job and thanks for sharing!

  2. So cute! Love the choice of colors. Funny that you said you borrowed this set. As soon as I see this set I always get frustrated because I loaned it to someone a few years ago and never got it back and can't for the life of me remember who and it was my favorite Halloween set--but I refuse to re-buy it, lol! Great job on the sketch, thanks so much for playing along!

  3. Love this card and those colors are awesome together!! I will be featuring this card on my Halloween feature of My Crafty Picks #40 with a link back to your blog on 10-30-11. Make sure to stop by to check out all the picks and to pick up your blog badge to display on your blog for being featured!!
