RetroSketches #139 and one more for 12 Kits

IMG_6843


I'm back again with another card for the new sketch at RetroSketches!

Since the leftovers were still spread all over my desk I seized the opportunity to use some more of the fantastic kit that Jessica sent to us this month at the 12 Kits of Occasions.

This week's card is based on a card previously made by Erin Taylor, I am always in awe of how she puts her cards together.  I really had a hard time not just copying her.  Here is what I came up with by colouring this little critter from Lawn Fawn Into the Woods like a chipmunk!

Head over to RetroSketches today to see what the rest of the team has created using this sketch for your inspiration! Thank you Arielle, for having me guest as the October Headliner!

I am also submitting this to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes!



I hope that you had a fun Halloween last night.  We had lots of rain and it was cold, we are expecting snow tonight! Not ready for that at all! We were amazed with the weather and poor showing the past couple of years to get 191 kids to the door!  Thought I would share one of our pumpkins because he was just too darn cute...

Brooklyn was happy to hand out candy to the kids tonight and she was sporting her costume she made and wore to school today. Gotta hand it to her, she made an original...
