Three Sentiments in One

Happy Halloween! (It sure seems odd that we are moving into November tomorrow.) I don't have a Halloween card to share with you today, though. I have a Birthday card, in part because I can't think of Halloween without thinking of my maternal grandmother, whose birthday was October 31st. I never knew her (she passed away before my parents met) but I've heard my dad share so many stories about her. He says that he and his friends often teased her about having a Halloween birthday as he was growing up.

I'm also excited to tell you about a special that SumMore Fun has going on - this week only. The Raisin Boat No Loss For Words stamp set is 25% off - it's a GREAT stamp set! There are 22 sentiments in this set. I used three of them on my card front.

As you can see, there are sentiments for many different occasions plus some that are more general in nature. 

For the background of my card, I blended three colors of Ranger Distress Oxide inks randomly all over a piece of white card stock. I then gave it a little spritz of water. After it was dry, I stamped the sentiments onto the colorful paper and then used a die to cut it out.

I also stamped the word Enjoy (from the same stamp set) on the inside of my card.

Thanks for stopping  by my blog today!
