Back.

After I got back from visiting Avery and her family last week, I came home to company. Our dd and sil were here from Phoenix for his niece's wedding. That left no time to craft...and yesterday, after they left (@5:00 a.m.) it was time to catch up on groceries, laundry, and then a granddaughter's swim meet. I did attempt to make a card before the swim meet, but mojo was a no go. Finally got back in the groove this morning. Although my mojo is somewhat limited for now....

I made a card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. They're "going dotty" over there. Use dps, embossing; just make it dotty.

I went starry dotty:



No matter what I did, the image decided it was not going to cooperate well. I must be out of practice. But I think you get the general idea. The 'happy' was cut using my NBUS die from MFT. I smeared glue all over it, and sprinkled green glitter. While that dried, I covered the front of the base with some Doodlebug dp, cut a white mat, and a black mat from some scraps, and used my Cameo to create a little tag. The ribbon was in my last order from Ellen Hutson, and I used some KF twine. The 'Halloween' is more NBUS - a masked off sentiment from Newton's Nook stamps. Once the 'happy' was dry, I put it all together. I like how it turned out. This will be a good one to send to the college girls. Happy dances everyone.

I'm so glad you had great family time but it does kind of chase the mojo away, doesn't it. Looks like you're getting back in the groove, though. This is a great "older" child Halloween card.

Welcome home, Bev! If only my mojo could go missing and I could still turn out a card like you have done! Love the beautiful glittered letters - soooo pretty. The black with the orange and green looks wonderful. Love your Halloween card!

Yay! Nice to see a happy creation gracing my computer monitor once again! Sure doesn't look like Mr. Mojo was sloughing off here - I'd say he was in fine form!

Love the orange ribbon and your PERFECTLY tied bow (I think I got the same color in my last order too - love the sheen!). The green sparkles look great and so does the h'ween tag! Yep, great card to send to the college girls!

Welcome home Bev...bet you missed your craft time. This card is wonderful...I love the clean and bold look! Bet you still have lots to do . Hugs

Hi Bev! Such a fun Halloween card! That green-glittered "happy" sure does the trick. Having the rest of the sentiment on the tag is a great idea. Happy very-belated WCMD!
