CCC #117

Happy Tuesday!
Time for this week's CASology Cue Card.

This week's cue is:



Halloween is only two weeks away?
To create my card I embossed the sentiment in white on a little black stitched square mat.  I stamped the candy corn on white, coloured them with Copics and then fussy cut before ahered them to the sides of the mat.

Thanksgiving was wonderful this past weekend. A bit crazier than normal but lovely. My daughter was not able to get Sunday off of work and in good conscience did not want to phone in sick. Her big brother said he would stay back with her. So my husband and I headed to the cottage Saturday night without the kids so that I could give my Mom a hand with food preparations and my hubby could help my Dad with getting the cottage ready to close for the season. Sunday when Brooklyn finished work, she and Ben drove up to the cottage in just enough time to head to my brother's cottage for our Thanksgiving dinner. I think the kids had a great time together and I love how well they get along! 

Head on over to CASology today to learn what the 'cue card' means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you. I can't wait to see what you do!

I love the candy corns. My favorite Halloween candy. Your thanksgiving sounds like it was a wonderful time. And how fun when siblings like each other and get along.

Glad you had a good family time this weekend! I love these little candy corns...I almost used this set for my CQC this week! So fun to see it used this way, I would not have thought to emboss the letters in white on black, but it's perfect!

So glad to hear your Thanksgiving was wonderful, and that you had some 'family bonding' time. Your card is ultra adorable, and yes, I'll inevitably end up casing it because this little LF set is the only candy stamp I own (and only LF, at the moment). Super sweet; super cute!

I'm with Sandie, no idea what candy corns are! I've seen them pop up on a few Halloween cards and wondered what the little 'cones' were! It sounds like you've had a wonderful thanksgiving x
