It’s been a hard week…

It’s been a hard week. Just over a week ago we found out that one of my husbands brothers passed away so we’ve been dealing with that and having family in town. Then Utah had hurricane force winds that caused so much damage. Thankfully we didn’t have any damage but thousands of people are still without power. We even had to push the burial back a day as there were lots of downed trees in the cemetery.

Things are slowly getting back to normal so I’ve been back in my craft room creating again. Though my craft room is so messy right now, it’s hard to even find anything in there!! One of my daughters has offered to help me organize so hopefully this weekend it will start to look a lot better!

I made this Halloween card the other day.

I love owls and I love making Halloween cards, so this was fun.

I used the new stamp set from MFT called “Halloween Hoo” and also used their “Ghoulish Greetings” background stamp.

I chose some purple cardstock and stamped the background stamp in purple to give a tone on tone look. I then matted that in black cardstock.

For the main image, I cut a circle from white cardstock and used the MFT mini edge stencil with purple and black distress oxide inks to create the clouds. I framed the circle in black to help it stand out.

I stamped and colored the images and attached them to the circle, propping up the owls on some foam pads.

I then attached everything to a grey card base, added a sentiment strip and the card is done!

You can find the stamp set and background stamp at mftstamps.com . See you soon!
