Frightful & Delightful

Happy World Card Making Day To You!!!!
Every year I want to join in on all the fun....
Every year it seems I am either gone or have plans....
And this seems to be a typical "every year...sigh!!
 
My daughter is meeting me here to go to a HUGE craft fair...
over 240 venders, food, pumpkins, mums...and FUN!
Then at 4 we have  a hayride/fall party to attend in Indiana....
leaving me once again out of the festivities .....
 
 
But I did manage (at 3am this morning) to squeeze in a few things.....
The first being this delightful (I am liking that word...lol) sketch challenge
 
My card was built on Kraft card stock....
 
 
I used a Spellbinders round die to cut my moon....
the moon was "colored" with TH Distress inks
Mustard Seed~Spiced Marmalade~Squeezed Lemonade....
the black cat was cut with a NBUS (never before used stuff) Sizzix die
I have had for about 4 years, maybe more!!
He was cut on a scrap of grunge paper and I used my new TH Distress Glitter
wow...look at that sparkle...loving it!
The sentiment is also a newly purchased stamp from "Prickly Pear".....
 
I have another post today as well...thanks for visiting!!
