In crafty withdrawal

Hey all. I just noticed that I haven't posted anything in over a week! My house seems to have picked this year to start falling apart, so I've been dealing with water leakage in the basement, gutters that aren't working up to par all of a sudden, and getting price quotes for a new sump pump. Aargh!!! It's enough to make me want to pull out my hair! Oh the joys of home ownership. :)

Anyway, here is a card I made for the current Sparks challenge from Paper Smooches:

Here is the sketch provided:

I thought that it looked like part of a crescent moon. The pre made card is from DCWV all other paper is scrap. (My scrap pile is SLOWLY shrinking!) I embossed both the ghost and the sentiment. The stamp sets are Paper Smooches Spookalicious (ghost) and Qwick Qwips (eek). For the stars I used a Craft Twinkles Writer from DecoArt. I used Clear Snap inks and inked the edges of the card and the moon, and used foam squares by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to pop the ghost up. This sketch was so easy to work with. I think I made this card in under 30 minutes - quite the record for me! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the weekend!
