SR146 ~ Boo From the Crew ~

Good morning!  Had a few moments last night to attend a card class and hang out with old friends!  I just LOVE those kind of evenings!  Today I plan on getting a few household chores done and **wink, wink** sneak in some crafty!  :-)

But in the meantime, I want to share a fun sketch I found at Stampin' Royalty.   A while back my friend and Close to My Heart enabler, Emily, hosted a card class featuring a cute Halloween set.  One of the phrases is "no bones about it."  With all these big dogs around, I thought that sentiment might prove to be useful!  So with some new CTMH papers and stamp set plus this sketch I went to work.  My card doesn't have anything to do with St. Bernards but I'm sure someone will like it!  So here's the sketch...

And my interpretation...

I distressed and inked the DP edges. If you look closely, you will see a torn area on the bottom.
 ** That was on purpose...  ** Instead of pennants, I opted to use a Martha Stewart punch (Drippy Goo) and a bit of measuring tape twill from my stash to come up with some fun and funky trim. I stamped the trick or treater image on paper twice and hand cut one image to add with dimensional foam. The sentiment was embossed on black card stock.

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the Clear Dollar Stamps Monthly Blog Hop. I have two posts for Exploring Cricut this week for my Cricut fans as well. Pop in Monday and Friday for those. Tuesday, Our Daily Bread Designs will reveal their weekly challenge. Come by for my interpretation and details!
Whew! Sounds like a busy week! :-)
 Thanks for stopping in and hope you have a wonderful day!
