Hi everyone!! I can't believe I am up to day seven already - I am having a ball playing with all these fun new projects from the Holiday Mini :-) I have been stamping away in my craft room as I have several events coming up, starting with a workshop tonight! I am excited to see this group - I know some of them, and they are so fun to stamp with! And, I am excited to meet some new stampin' friends - that is RIGHT up my alley, lol!!!  I wanted to share a quick card I made today with the Out On A Limb stamp set from the mini - super cute and fun! I am not a huge Halloween fan (I know, I know) BUT this set is really cute and the images appeal to me. So, let me tell you what I did!! The base of this card is Cajun Craze card stock, one of my absolute favorite colors so I love that I can use it for fall projects. I layered the base with a piece of Basic Black card stock that I embossed with my Big Shot using the Spider Web embossing folder.  I paired this with some of the fabulous Frightful Sight Designer Series Paper, which is found in the main catalog.  The images are so fun, aren't they?? I had to use those bats and spiders, so I decided they needed to "carpool" together, lol! The "moon" behind them is sponged in using a finger dauber - I got it by punching out a circle and then using the outline of that punched circle, I sponged all around it! Perfect circle every time :-) I also sponged in the grass using a mix of colors to show the fall season. The Sentiment and the bats are actually from a different stamp set called Wicked Cool, and it is found in the main catalog as well! The ribbon is Grey satin ribbon, and totally yummy! See, I told you this one was nice and simple, lol!! I love how it came out - it is a fun Halloween card and I know JUST who to send this one to :-)  If you like the products you see here, you can order them in my online store or you can contact me and I will be happy to place your order for you! Just think, you can have this adorable Out On a Limb stamp set in your hands and stamping in just a few days :-) Now I am off to prep for my workshop tonight, and work on my class stuff for tomorrow!! I just love my job :-) Have a wonderful day and I hope you take some time out to create!!
