Happy Halloween

Hello -

This is my second time writing this post.  I inadvertently wrote it originally on a blog team post.  Arrgh.  I deleted it hopefully quickly enough and am now starting over.

Its another laundry Monday and that gives me time to sit and create between loads and moving clothes from the washer to the dryer.  One of these days those combination washer/dryers will add a folding combination and will be the perfect household appliance.  I've seen videos of the folding machines and they look pretty cool.

Another thing that is pretty cool is when I look at a challenge and the card idea just pops and it takes but a few minutes to create.  That is how my first card went today.



I had some patterned papers on my desk reminiscent of the images in the photo at Inspired by,  I loved the sketch and black pumpkin at Fusion,and The Male Room calls for a masculine Halloween Card.  The papers and sentiment come from Stampin Up, the dies are from Simon Says Stamp. I had a bit of orange fun foam on my desk too which added some depth and texture.

   



Edited to Add: I knew there was one more challenge with plaid, thank you Barb for pointing it out. Adding to that challegne too.  Addicted to CAS.



Thanks so very much for stopping by.

I'm in love with your sweet little plaid pumpkin and how you contrasted it with the solid orange...such a lovely take on the sketch, theme, and color palette, Cat! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Fusion!

If you're interested, our current code word at ATCAS is 'plaid', and your card is perfect for it ~ https://addictedtocas.blogspot.com/2019/10/addicted-to-cas-challenge-170.html

Beautiful and I also think, Halloween cards do not always have to be scary.
