Happy Happy Day

With today's post, I could say HAPPY Halloween (just look at the pictures)...

or I could say, I'm HAPPY that I got to be part of the Stamp-N-Doodle Spook Night a couple of days ago...

or I could say I'm HAPPY to be away this weekend at a Papercrafting Retreat!!!

All of those would be true statements!

But, thanks to the option of scheduled posting, I'm also HAPPY that I can have a blog post today, even though I'm not anywhere near my computer.

Just in case you missed the fun at the Stamp-N-Doodle Spook Night, let me show you a card I created for that event:

It was a Sketch AND Color Challenge - use the sketch and the colors Black/Purple/Orange.

But somehow I goofed up, and missed the AND.... so the first card I made for the Spook Night event didn't meet the criteria.

I thought you might like to see it anyway, so here it is:

and here's the inside of my card:

Oh, and a closeup:

Spook night also had another project - a Witch's Shoe:

The picture doesn't do it justice. I made it with glittery black paper. Dratted photo looks bland, but it really is sparkly!

There's still time to play along in the challenge, so go over to Blog-a-Doodle for the details and play along. You have until Oct 12th to complete your projects and submit them to be eligible for the Grand Prize of a $10.00 store certificate. WOW! How cool is that!?!?!?

Just fabulous and all things spooktacular! Both cards are drool worthy! And the shoe - it couldn't be more "fitting" hhheeeeehheeee! It's darling! I'm seeing a lot of these shoes and really think I need to try one, too! Absolutely wonderful! A retreat - how wonderful! Lucky girl! Have a wonderful time as I know "you" time does't come along very often - blessings!
