It's my Saturday post!


And, if you saw yesterday's post you will know that we recently returned from Florida and I have a few more photos to share.

We were there for Halloween ... so took a drive, there's one street near us that REALLY goes all out!

People visit from all over the place to see this Halloween display
Sophisticated light shows co-ordinated to music and all the neighbours get together
to do this, most spectacular
And now for some crafting ... I normally like to enter the Simply Less Is More challenge but their last one was "fireworks" and I really didn't have the images or the inspiration ... typical it was a two weeker too. Therefore, feeling I might enter this one more than once!!

My card
My CASE? I took my inspiration from the stamp manufacturer (MFT) and the elves bell
The front, back and inside of the card along with the front and back of the envelope

Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 300gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • White card cut to fit the inside of my card 
  • White and red 300gsm card die cut using MFT stitched rectangle dies
  • Precious Remembrance Shop (sketchy Christmas) sentiment stamped using MFT Black licorice hybrid ink
  • MFT (Bitty Bears) image stamped using MFT Black licorice hybrid ink
  • MFT (Santa's Elves) bell stamped using Delicata Golden Glitz ink
  • Faber Castell polychromos pencils used to colour blending with sansodor and a paper stump
  • Stardust stickles to bling it up a bit

  1. Simply Less Is More - challenge No. 355 - CASE SUSAN'S CARD

love that sentiment, not a company i've heard of until now, but it's gorgeous and so is your card. I also didn;t have any firework stamps, but I went with the rainbow option

This bear image is so cute Kathy and I love the way you have framed it with the red, and the gold bauble looks great hanging from the end of the sentiment. Thanks for the Halloween photos too. A fabulous light display! x
