With Hurricane Sandy headed our way we are cooped up inside trying to ride out the storm safely. Which means a day off of work and some extra crafting time. However the stormy weather doesn't make for good pictures of the card. I made this simple card for CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge 3. I'm loving their sketches and I'm trying keep my cards CAS which can sometimes be a challenge in and of itself. The papers are Kaisercraft and from the latest card kit from my LSS Scapper's Cove. Loving all the cute little creatures from this line but I'm running out of paper to pair the creatures with. Anyone else in the path of Hurricane Sandy, be safe!

This week at Anything But a Card we have a simple challenge that can also help with any last minute Halloween projects. The challenge is to use black in your project. The DT has created a variety of fun projects so check them out for some inspiration and then get to work sharing your creation.
Fresh Squeezed Stamps is hosting a fun challenge that they have dubbed Squeeze A Palooza. This month the challenge is to make a Halloween project using Fresh Squeezed Stamps or the free digital stamp they provided. The best part is you can win one of their fabulous stamp sets. I created several cards using the Subway series stamps with a Halloween theme. There's only a few more days to enter your card so go grab the digi or your stamps and get started.

Last week I saw a great sketch on someone's blog but couldn't remember where it was from then luckily I stumble upon CAS(E) This Sketch once again and got pretty excited. Loving these sketches and this time I am sharing my card with the sketch and am able to link it up. Sorry for the crummy photo but I took the original in the good format and when I realized this the sun was already down. Anyway check out these fun and simple sketches. It's a bit of a challenge for me to make a card CAS but it's fast which is a benefit. The stamps are from Fresh Squeezed Stamps and paper is from my Paper Made Bakery kit.

I was the lucky winner of the Happy Hexagons set from Fresh Squeezed Stamps. It was a set I was really loving so I was excited to win it.
I thought it would work great with this old Basic Grey line because they both have a really fun graphic quality. So I played around with different arrangements of hexagons on the various papers. Some of these cards could even be given to a guy which is definitely a feat for me personally.
Thanks to Fresh Squeezed Stamps for the fab set. Next up to play with the Subway Series set.

This week at Anything But a Card we are looking for your Halloween creations. This should be an easy one because Halloween lends itself to lots of fun treat holders. In fact most of the projects for ABAC around this time will be treat holders from me because I'm excited to give them to friends and family. This week I have some upcycled packaging decorated for Halloween. Can't wait to see your Halloween project over the next two weeks!

I'm using my new kit from Paper Made Bakery for the new Shopping Our Stash challenge. At SOS they are playing crafting tic-tac-toe. I choose the bottom row: yellow, sparkle, and sentiment. The cute yellow birdie, the fence and the flower are all from the Fresh Squeezed stamp set. So excited to get the rest of my stamps from them.

I love getting my Paper Made Bakery Kit each month and September was no exception. I'm going to share a few cards and a tag made with this kit.
I love Cosmo Cricket so I was thrilled to get the Twenty-Three collection to play with.
I also love Lawn Fawn and so it was great to add to my collection with the Stay Tuned set. Everything from the projects is from the kit so I can assure you when playing with the kit you'll need to add adhesive, ink, and scissors only.
