Hey y'all. Happy Friday to you! I hope you're having a great day and that your week to this point has been fabulous. :) It's stormy and gloomy here in the DMV which kinda fits my mood. My grandmother died yesterday and though we hadn't been close in the past few years, she gave me lifetime of wonderful memories to remember her by. If you get a chance today, I hope you'll take the time to tell those you love just how precious they are to you. We never know if we'll get the chance to tell them later.
So let's have something a little more fun now. I'm loving the Toxic Treats Stamp Set and the Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP. In fact I've made 3 cards with it just this week. So nothing really over-the-top with today's card but I think it's still cute and could be used for anyone. It's actually a C&S design but could I just leave it at that? You know I couldn't. Lol!
Here's today's card-

Toxic Treats Stamp Set and Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP
Although I sponged the edges to add that illusion of depth it just wasn't doing it for me. It was ok, but I just wasn't happy with it. Recently I posted about how I sometimes add a lot of layers/elements and then have to pull a Coco Channel and remove something. Well, this time I definitely needed to add something. I think the small mat made all the difference in the world. Would love to hear what you think.
Here's the sketch I used. I should have posted this yesterday so I could enter it in the challenge but totally forgot. *Fail*-
I think I did the sketch justice, don't you?
Here's the inside-

I inked the Cauldron in Basic Grey and the bubbles in Lucky Limeade and let Tink have just a wee-bit of fun. See ...Toxic but Cute.

That's all I have for you today. I hope you liked it! I love hearing from you, so if you have thoughts or questions about today's card I hope you'll take just a minute and leave me a comment. I read all of them and they really make my day! If you'd like to +1 or Pin today's card, I've put the buttons on my blog for your convenience. Friends and Followers are always welcome too! :)
Oh and before I go, can I just say I'm so glad it's Football Season again! Woot!!!! Way to go New England on your win last night over the Saints.
I wish you an Amazing weekend filled with lots of time for Family, Friends and of course for creativity. I hope to see you back real soon for all new cards and projects.
