Well, yesterday was "hump day" as many people like to call it.  Luckily, I had a little bit of time last night to make a card.  While visiting some of my friends' blogs this week, I saw some challenges where I really wanted to play along, and now I'm happy to have a card to enter into these challenges.  It's nothing super fancy, but it's fun.  I have so many nieces and nephews, and not all of them are allowed to celebrate Halloween.  But for the ones who are allowed to celebrate and go trick-or-treating, I like to make up little treats to give them.  This one is for Mary Beth, my oldest niece.  She wants to be a mouse for Halloween.  She's so cute!
I made this card with a simple pattern paper, a digital Halloween image, a wooden piece that says BOO, and a big ribbon bow with a plaid fabric brad in its center.  As I said, it's a very simple card, but it's a fun one and it will do the job of allowing me to play along in some challenges.

Choux Choux Paper Arts - Halloween Challenge 2016 - I noticed that Lori likes the cute kind of spooky, and that's what I prefer as well, so that's the style I had in mind when I created this card.

I really appreciate the fact that you've stopped by today, and I'm even more grateful to have you leave a comment and possibly even become a new follower of my blog.  That would be awesome, and of course I would do the same for you by stopping by your blog to become a new follower there as well.  That's how we make blog friends, right?  I thank you all for the inspiration you give me.  I love visiting your blogs, and look forward to getting to know you all a bit better here in blog land.  Thanks so much for the visit.



  1. Sierra this is an adorable card!! Love that sweet image. :) I also wanted to say thank you for stopping past my blog, leaving a sweet comment and for putting my badge on your sidebar! Unfortunately, the only way for me to receive blog updates is to my email because I am very forgetful most days. I won't remember to check out someone's blog unless I get an email. I looked on your blog for a "Subscribe by email" option but did not see one. Could you please add one? You will get many more followers that way too as a lot of people like to follow blogs through email. Just a tip! Have a great Sunday! In the meantime, I am a new follower :)
