Flashback Friday- Beware of Poison!

Long time no blog eh?!  I wish I could have been doing much more here and much more creating.  Alas, it will likely be slower for me for the next few months as I am taking a super intense class at the moment.  I hope you'll still stop by even though my blogging will be more sporadic.

Today I wan't share a card with you that I made using a new set from Stampers Anonymous, the Tim Holtz Collection.  I like these sketchy stamps with the measurements and notes on them, they lend themselves to the shabby chic look no problem.   While there are a lot of them I wouldn't buy, I knew this one had to be mine the minute I saw it.  What I like about this set is that it is fun for Halloween but also a good fall set.  I don't tend to make too many fall seasoned cards, but I've already made three with this, so that has to tell you something.  :)  What I love about this card in particular is the non-traditional Halloween color of blue and the glittery enamel dots just add something special.  They make me think of what is inside that poison bottle and what it might look like bubbling out the top....(insert evil laugh) bwahahahaha!

I am entering this into the Inspired By Challenge #92,  The City Crafter's Challenge #180. and the Ribbon Carousel Blog Challenge- Halloween/Fall.  Here is the inspiration they provided.

Onto Flashback Friday?  I think so!  Here are the questions and responses from the last two weeks:

PSL10 (9/29/13)
Q-  from CM who wants to know what your favorite cookie recipe is?
A- Kimberly provided a recipe for her fave Pumpkin Squares-

Bella of the Ball (10/1/13)
Q- Besides coffee, what helps perk you up when you are in need?
A- Amy said, "Unfortunately beside coffee, snacking helps me to wake up or I tell myself that it does...LOL."

Frightful or Delightful? (10/3/13)
Q- what was your favorite Halloween costume you've ever seen or worn?
A- CM said, "Favourite Halloween costumes (so far) are those my niece and nephew word last year: she was a bat (cutest bat EVER), and he was a billy goat...complete with a wee billy goat beard. Excited to see what they'll be this year! Fab post, as always!"

Hope Floats (10/4/13)
Q- Since this card is for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, how about telling me what your cause is, cancer, MS, autism?   There were so many answers..mental illness, cancer, breast cancer, MS, autism.  I realized what I should have asked is what you do to support your cause?  Feel free to let me know now, I'd love to hear. :)

You know the drill, for today's Question of the Day, you decide what to ask?  What do you want to know about me or your fellow crafters?  Here are a few to help get your mind moving- 

  • If you could take any class (cost or time, etc. is no object) what would it be?  
  • When you need to blow some steam, how do you do it?
  • Besides papercrafting, what is your favorite form of art?
  • Who is your favorite comedian?  
  • etc, etc, etc. 
Happy Friday all!  I truly hope you enjoy your weekend!

Glad you're back, and that all is well (I was getting concerned!), even though you sound super busy. Your card is super cool; great showcase of the TH stamp and unique take on the inspiration photo. I've decided that 'all' occasions are card-making incentive: fall, Halloween, days of the week :) Any 'excuse' to create works for me! You mentioned that you're taking an 'intense' class which must be leading to something ~ perhaps a 'dream job'? My question: what would be your dream job? Have a great Sunday, and Happy "Canadian" Thanksgiving to you!!
