Busy Crafting

Hi Everyone!

So sorry I'm late posting today; but would you forgive me if I told you it was because I was busy crafting all day! My family got "Booed" last night. If you're not familiar with that, a mystery halloween basket with goodies and treats shows up at your door and then you in turn have to make 2 baskets to distribute to people in the neighborhood who haven't been "booed" yet. There is a sign that you put on your door, so that people know you've been booed. Apparently, the key is to get that sign up quickly, because not 20 minutes after the first basket arrived, the doorbell rang and we had been booed again. So, now I had 4 baskets to put together. Of course, I couldn't put together four baskets without putting in something crafty, now could I? I decided to put together some one sheet boxes and put little halloween goodies inside of them.
All that is really beside the point, since the card I have to share with you is actually my card for yesterday's Mojo Monday. I started with a 5x5 Creamy Caramel square base and then added a layer of Groovy Guava which I stamped with the Stitched Background stamp in Caramel ink. Next, I added the piece of Old Olive which I ran through the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. I don't remember the name of the folder....I never do. It's the one that looks like that, though! I stamped the piece of blush blossom on the side with a stamp from the SU "Razzle Dazzle" set in Guava Ink. I cut the caramel circle with my petite scallop circle Nestabilities and then added a blush circle. The floral image in the middle is stamped in Old Olive ink and is also from the "Razzle Dazzle" set. I added the sentiment from "Sincere Salutations and completed the card.
So, that's all for me today. I hope that you like it, and thanks for stopping by. I can't wait to see what you all have been doing...until then, have a great evening.
