Crappy Day and Winner



I did NOT have a good day at work last Friday. Generally bad, but worse because it was something stupid that I did that could totally have been prevented.

As luck would have it, both girls were away with grandparents, so when I got home I headed straight for the dining room for some craft therapy, and I knew exactly which stamp set I was going to pull out.

I think this stamp set is hilarious. It's one of those sets where you see it and just have to have it.

All the papers in the card (with the exception of the red which came from the scrap bag) are from Moonlight, CTMH's new Halloween paper collection - you wouldn't have guessed that, huh?

I'm not a huge Halloween person, so I don't tend to gravitate towards the Halloween papers, but I really like this collection because it's so neutral and not so Halloweeny. This is what the full papers look like:



I definitely felt better after making this card, and having dinner out with Andrew. Hope that your day is WONDERFUL and not at all crappy. :)

Finally, the winner of the Shaping Up Blog Hop is aka Frank-Lee Speaking. Congrats Felicia! Please send me your address and I'll get your prize out to you, and thanks to everyone for participating!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock: CTMH - Moonlight Papers, White Daisy bulk card base
