Saving every penny for the past one and a half months has been really boring! Although it's for a good cause (a house), it really has taken it's toll on us lately. So on Saturday we decided to get out of town and do a little shopping. Ahhhh! We could afford to do a little bit of retail therapy, so we did our annual pilgrimage to the Yankee Candle factory in Deerfield, MA. LOVE this place! It's smells wonderful and they have a great home decor section! If you ever get the chance to go, I highly recommend it!
So this week's There She Goes challenge (TSG76) is a recipe one and the lovely Piala has challenged us to use:
A kraft base, the colors black and white, a splash of color and a dry embossing technique.
Because I'm (still) in the festive mood (you're going to have to drag me out of it kicking and screaming!) I immediately thought of a Halloween theme for my card. (Bare with me friends, there are still two more weeks before the holiday!) I can't get enough of the cute characters from the Hauntingly Delightful set - they're just soo cute!!
Using the old Eerie collection of papers from Basic Grey, I chose to go with a predominately black card, with hints of white and my splash of color was the green. I used Taylor's TESC131 sketch for my layout and embossed the vertical strip with the swirls embossing folder from Cuttlebug.
Now it's your turn! Make your creation using Piali's recipe and upload it to your blog or SCS gallery. Then leave a link to it in the InLinz do-dad at the bottom of the TSG post. You could be the winner of a $5 gift certificate to the TSG webstore! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
