I couldn't wait to break out of one of my favorite 
new collections for the Halloween season
from My Mind's Eye, so thank you to Jax, 
our color story coordinator over at

I love this color story!
{ well, when don't I? }

The color combination could have taken me in
a variety of directions, but when I saw this image
in the new 6x6 pad 'Mischevous' from MME,
decision made!

This was such an easy card to make because it was
a matter of layering the polka dot paper and wrapping
it in my favorite baker's twine from The Twinery.

I love using my Distrezz-it-All from Zutter and yes,
I do use it for the smallest jobs like card-making
even though it can also distress chipboard.
SRM Designs provides the beautiful 'sticker' sentiments.

This week, our Cup of the Week winner will receive
a fabulous shopping spree from

so make sure you pop by The Cafe
and check out all the amazing designs from 
our design team and!

Before I go....

This is a VERY close up shot of the tree in
front of our home.  The colors are so close to
our challenge colors, I thought it was a good time
to share it.  The 'stormy'-looking sky is exactly
that...just 10 minutes after I snapped this photo
tonight, it poured.
My goal with such a close-up shot was to get the
tiny finch nest.  I don't have a fancy fact,
it's an eight-year old Kodak with limited capabilities,
but it gets me through each post and didn't fail me
when I wanted to capture the memory of this tiny
nest, which will be home to a new family next spring.

Hi Julie! Love love love your cute halloween card... the dp is wonderful! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your sweet comment. The song that is #1 on my blog has meant so much to me I just had to add it to the play list. I'm glad it was a blessing to you too and I'm saying a prayer for your DMIL!
