Spooky Sweets


How are you today? Has it been getting cooler where you live? Here in Pittsburgh, the temperatures have been dropping a bit more at night and it is so nice sleeping. I love when it is a bit chilly in the evenings - perfect for snuggling under the covers!

This week I'm again squeezing my challenges in right at the last minute. I am playing along with this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge as well as the new CASE Study challenge for this week.

Our color story this week was another great color combination: teal, mustard, and navy. I have been itching to play with some new goodies that just arrived from Wplus9 and so I thought I'd try these non-traditional colors for Halloween.

I used the new A Pocketful and A Pocketful: Halloween sets to create this card. I am sure you can see how I was inspired by Julie Lacey's CASE Study creation - I liked the layered strips she used along the bottom and the large label focal image up top.

I used the magic wand image from A Pocketful: Halloween and combined it with the stitched pocket image from A Pocketful. I did some paper piecing to help incorporate this week's colors into my project. And I did some stamping right on patterned paper - yay me for remembering to do this!

Aren't these images cute? You should see the spiders in the set - they have the cutest eyebrows!

Thanks for stopping by - I don't think the official schedule has been announced yet, but a little secret from me to you.. you're going to want to stop back here later this week to catch a peek at new Waltzingmouse stamps!

Hope your day is fantastic!
