Hello friend

Does it ever happen to you that you start a project, and doesn't get to finish it day after day?? Sometimes I am able to finish a creation in a day or two.. other times; like in this case, a project takes me 4 days to finish! Sigh!!

I don't blame myself, cause taking care of a bunch of kids 24 hrs is no joke, especially in Summer holidays and the week before School starts. I am dreaming of colours, stationery, copybooks and plastic wrappers.. I've been seeing them lying all around all week! Duh!

Anyway finally I finished my card with tis cutie patootie.. isn't he darling??

He is another gorgeous design from the new Fall Belles 'n Whistles release. Look at that cute boy's expression while he is handing one of his precious treats to the scarecrow!! I can't get over that cute innocent look! Innocent, selfless love is the sweetest thing on earth!

I didn't have Halloween papers or embellies, but I used Lime rickey paper from Basic Grey to coordinate with the orange,black and blue green colour scheme I used on this card. Halloween is very new in Malta, so I made it sort of a thank you/ friendship/ Halloweeny card! :)

I used the present sketch at Midnight Madness Challenge - Week 20. It was a bit hard at first, but I was determined to give it a go :) Then I also kept in mind Simon says Challenge which this week is using real/faux Stitches. (like our Roses on Paper challenge)

Both sentiments are Studio G clear stamps,the round one is stamped on a scrap piece of card stock.I cut it round with a nestie, and then traced the outward curve on a glittered black cardstock for some bling. I used the same cardstock to mat the image and the other panels. I colored the image in Copics (sorry i forgot to take the photo of the numbers used this time!!).

The inside is kept simple, yet I think it did a lovely effect. I added some faux stitches there as well, and embellished with some flower embellies and a punched out flower.

Have a happy week (weekend is very near now), and thank you for finding the time to come here, read all this and spend some time on my little space. Thank you for all the support and love you leave me here. I can never tell you enough how much you make my day. God bless you!

Thanks for looking

Dear Rosette, your card is stunning! Love your coloring with the Copics! I think the papers match the cutie perfectly! Gorgeous work! I know this took awhile to make but it was worth the wait. :)
I can honestly relate to the slow card/project making that can take days to finish. In my case, nights. sigh. Wish we had more time to make these lovelies.

Don't stress & Have a wonderful day with your kiddies ;)

Gorgeous card, Rosette. I think it was a perfect thing to make the card as a halloweenishy friendshipcard. Good idea, cause since we're not celebrating it very much in Norway i'm not making unique halloweencards.
As always you've coloured the image so nice. And them embellies are perfect.
I'm now waiting for my new BnW-stamps to arrive. I couldn't resist buying some of them and now I'm looking forward to play with them :)
Hugs, Kristin :)

Congrats on winning at MMSC last week, Rosette! Your cards are always beautiful. And yes, I do understand the cards that take more than 4 days LOL. And those other ones that are so much quicker, right? :) It's still fun nevertheless. Thanks for giving this sketch a go, it's wasn't easy even for me. xox ~Jeni & MMSC DT

So glad you found the time to finish this card with your busy schedule because it is adorable. I have the same problem at times myself. Sometimes I will get my image colored but then it will be 2 or 3 days later before I get to put the card together. I guess you could say we create on the run sometimes! LOL! Hope you have a great weekend.

This is gorgeous and I love that you've pulled papers from a various paper pack rather than a Halloween pack!! I'm trying to do the same thing right now, but the Halloween papers keep calling me back. Congrats on the MM award for this stunner!!
