Fab Friday #99

How can it be that we are SOOOOCLOSE to doing Fab Friday Stampin' Challenge #100???? I honestly have not been able to figure out where time has been going lately ... as in the past 10 years,lately!!! WHOOSH!!! Right by me!!

And Monday is Halloween ... Really???? Can't believe that has come back around again, either!!! So on this challenge (see sketch below), I purposely tried to create a NON-Halloween card given that it's only three days away and it would be only TOO EASY to roll with Halloween, know what I mean???

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, So Saffron, Very Vanilla
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories:  Botanical Builders Framelits, Cableknit Dynamic TIEF, Square Punch, Burlap Ribbon, Gold Cord, Mini Stapler

Spooooooooooky and fun color combo!

My weekend is chock FULL of Halloween activities. Starting today ... this is about the 20th time (or so ... perhaps, 22nd?) that my friend and I have been in charge of the Halloween Carnival at the local elementary school. Food, cake walk, costume contest, trick or treating, spook alley, professional photos ... we seem to have this baby down to a SCIENCE. Saturday, our family will be doing the Annual Weixler Apple Pressing Day, as well as having a Trunk or Treating party at our church. And Sunday, after church, we will be having all our kids hanging out with us to have dinner and carve jack-o-lanterns ... it'll be EXHAUSTING, but SUCH a great time!

I LOVE how you used the Cable Embossing Folder!! That is such a pretty card--colors, design, materials. I would love to recreate this card for my friends :).

I love the colors, the embellishments, and of course, the texture on this card! Thanks for the inspiration!
