I hope that you are smiling 🙂  Now this is my kind of card…a fun and sweet Halloween card. This is a 4 1/4″ square card and it would fit in a regular envelope but you know me…I adore my envelopes so I made one with the envelope punch board.

The inspiration for this card came the MINUTE I saw the Holiday catalog! Please do not forget to CASE the amazing ideas that the concept artists from Stampin’ Up! creates for us! Below is the picture that inspired me for today’s card! I just love it and I knew that I could “tweak it” to make it into a card.






I know that som of us have learned the hard way and have not bought the offerings as a “bundle” when they are offered. This IS available as a bundle and the way that I look at this one is… is a classic and one that you can use at other times of the year (like the tree and fence) and as bundles go – this is an affordable one!

Please know…if you have a product that is NOT in the catalog…it doesn’t mean that it is not a “keeper” (as I like to call it) and trust me, I have many, MANY stamp sets and framelits that have been retired but YEP, I still use them as I love them ~ I simply do not blog about them as it would not be fair for you not to be able to purchase them.





Below you will see a parade of pictures for you! From one sheet of this FUN orange plaid paper, you could make 9 of these cards as this piece is 4″ X 4″ and then really….scraps is the name of the game to pull together the bulk of this card.

I love this first picture as you can see how I “lifted” the circle fun but left the branches hang off the edge, it looks fun and the detail of this tree is wonderful



Stampin' Up! Clean and Simple Halloween Card, Spooky Fun Bundle









I adore how this bakers twine ties. It is so soft and subtle to work with and I thought that it was the perfect accent to the card. I used a simple glue dot to anchor it in place!

Below is your 411 photo to pin! I say…SUPER CUTE – what do you think?





Please continue to keep the areas that are being affected by the Hurricane in your thoughts. This is terrible. I simply cannot imagine the turmoil. My heart goes out to everyone, I simply cannot imagine.

Today I am putting on my Mom hat  – Middle PEEP has asked my to help him as he is in charge of a Gold Tournament today….YEP, when a PEEP asks – I go…..with them being adults – I love the fact that they still reach out to dear old Mom!

Tomorrow is Simple Saturday and it is also the card that you will receive with a $35+ order! (I know, I know – I need to update the offerings for this month….I am playing catch up but I will get to it)

Enjoy the day….
