Seize the Sketch #27 - Trick Or Treat

Hello friends!  =D  I had so much playing with the current sketch (#27) at our LAST (sniff) Seize The Sketch challenge, another card popped out of me.  Lo and behold, it's a Halloween card!

The retired Stampin' Up! set, Window Dressing, was staring at me from its place on the Ikea book shelf in my studio.  It never saw much ink, and I felt bad for it.


The kitty and window are from that set, the pumpkin is from Family Accessories, and the sentiment (colored with markers) is from Holiday Best.  Boom!  A Stampin' Up!-only card!


Here's the sketch again, and before you say, "What?  Her card looks nothing like the sketch!", take a peek below.


Sure, maybe I took a little creative license with the sentiment and bow, but the bare bones are still there!


My family and I just got back from a trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a quick break before school resumes.  It felt good to play in the surf (before the waves became too rough due to the offshore Hurricane Cristobal) and just let go for a while.


The sunsets are so gorgeous there, my camera just clicked away.





Me and my youngest, doing a selfie.

This makes for a very sweet and friendly Halloween card! Love the idea of the kitty in the window waiting to greet the trick or treaters. I'm sorry to see this sketch blog go. It was my favorite. Fabulous vacation photos of that magnificent sky, and you and your daughter are so cute together!
