Fresh Plucked...

Hi there! Ready for the weekend?

I am here to bring you another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.

Today, we're going with a circle card - these are always fun to make, right?

Here is today's sketch:

And here is my card.. its kind of gross, so be warned ;)

Ewww! Ha! Oh, I love Halloween.

The Eyeballs label text is from Wanda's Pantry. (I mean, if there is a label for eyeballs then I need to use it and make some eyeballs, right?)

The 'eyeballs' were created using the flower from Rescue Remedies. Yes, the flower that I love almost more than anything. I bet you'll never 'look' at it quite the same way again! *snort*

The circular card base and decorative label were cut using my Slice. There is a layer of acetate sewn to the front of the card and then the eyeballs are tucked inside. Like a jar. That you'd keep eyeballs in. Halloween really brings out the best in me.

The sketch challenge will remain open until Thursday, 11:59 EST. You can link up your entry on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog. Top Mice will be announced along with the new sketch next Saturday! Be sure to visit the blog and check out what the other DT members and Mischief Makers have created for the sketch challenge!

Before you take off, the Random Number Generator thingy picked comment #4 to win my blog candy. That's you, Genevieve!! Email me your address and I'll pop your issues of Paper Crafts Magazine in the mail.

Have a great day!

PS - Kayaking last night was awesome!
