OK, I know I've mentioned it sometimes takes me a few days to make one card. You wanna know the problem with this? On Day 1 I have a *great* idea for a card, or for an element of the card, & by the time I get around to actually putting it together, I've forgotten about it!!

When I had this card in my head, I had wanted to use the Drippy Goo punch for the orange strip. I haven't gotten to use that baby yet!! When I put the card together today, I automatically reached for my Web punch instead. Apparently, I'm playing favorites with my punches. Of course, I had it all glued together & finished when I slapped my forehead & thought "Doh!!!! I used the wrong punch!" Sheesh!! Well, I'm sure there are many more Halloween cards in my future, so everyone will get a chance to play!

I had a few other problems with this card as well, but I won't go into them. I do love this Fluffles image & in the end it turned out ok! His ghost costume is cut out & popped up.....the image is colored with Copics....the papers are SU's Pumpkin Pie, Green Galore, & heck, the pattern papers are so old I have no idea who makes them! LOL!! These are the last scraps I have of these......I've used just about all the Halloween papers in my possession!! The image was cut out with my Labels 4 Nestabilities. The ribbon was giving me fits as I was trying to tie the I ended up simply sticking a pumpkin brad in the middle of it, lol!

Here's a close up.....that little mouse is just too cute!!

ETA: You can now buy this image in cling form at 7 Kids College Fund.....HERE IS THE LINK!

Well tomorrow is the first day of school. I'm having serious anxiety & I don't know why. My kids are fine.....but I'm breaking out in hives. I'm sure once they're on the bus, & I'm back home in a silent house I will be just fine :) I just received my Magnolia Fall Kit today (which, if you missed out, you can preorder from 7 Kids College Fund HERE) so I'm going to play with those a bit tomorrow, plus start a little project I've wanted to do for a while, but haven't found the time to actually start! So all will be good :)

Hi Michelle,
Love this cat and all he gets in to!! Love what you have done with his sheet costume. The spider web punch is just fine and as you say you will have lots more time to use the goo one. I have neither of them and every time I try to buy them everyone is sold out :o(
Just a great happy funny card.....
Hugs, Candy

I love your cards! I am going to have to go out and track down that Martha Stewart Boarder punch! I know it's going to be a challenge, but now I am on a mission!

It's so fun to read about your d'oh moments. I have so many of those! I'm glad I'm not alone. :) This is a great card. The first thing I noticed was the web punch... so I'm glad you used it. I have no idea what the other punch actually looks like that you're talking about, so I look forward to seeing it in a creation you make. Thanks for sharing. This card is great!
