Boo to you...

TGIF everybody! 

Now don't panic... yes you are at the A Thousand Sheets blog even though it may not look like the kind of card you expect to find here. I admit, it is a rare occurrence for me not to have a character image as the star of the show but I didn't have a lot of time for coloring yesterday so I figured this was a good time to play with a stamp set that only needed ink. I've had the Twig Wreath set from Papertrey for a couple months now and I really wanted to make it work for a Halloween card. So I grabbed a bunch of Distress Inks in all the usual  Halloween colors and went to town. This was a good start but I needed something more, that is when I had my 'a-ha!' moment... the Friendship Jar Fillers fall set. From that I could add a couple spiderwebs complete with spider and the pair of pumpkins so that I did get in just a bit of coloring. I gotta say that I'm really diggin' how this this one came together.  ;)

Ok, time for me to run. See ya back here Monday and I promise there will be plenty of coloring and crafting back on the schedule.  :)

Love the wreath... it'd be just my luck to lean closer to check out the beautiful colors and get my hair caught in the webs; then, seriously freaking out, screaming, batting my head - must get spider out of hair! ... I digress. :). Awesome card, Amy!!
