Boo!

Hey all!  It's Wednesday and I have a new card to share with you!  This card was a quick creation for me.  I was in a time crunch last night because it was back to school night for DD.  Can  I just tell you, I got lost a few times going to a few of her classes?  It was quite embarrassing.  I stopped to ask 3 times for directions.  Twice the students couldn't give me proper directions.  Huh?  I realized that DD was totally on her own unless she asked a teacher.  There are 22 plus trailers and numbering is not a strong point. It was great to meet her teachers though.  Even if one told me my daughter was lost during last week's tornado drill.  This was deeply troubling to me.  Apparently they were unable to find her after the drill was over.  Autistic kids don't handle  chaos very well.  She sat in the gym the entire time because that was where she was instructed to go.  Tell an Aspie something and they will follow.  She did and apparently they lost her in the mass  of students.  Boo!  Which brings me to me y card.



This card started out as my Crafty Creations card for the week.  I based it off of Jeanet's sketch found here.  She also added a twist to the challenge, use ribbon/lace  and a rubber stamp.  My stamps are from my stash  for the Paper Sundaes challenge, they are by Making Memories that I got a few years back.  I love the crow with the print background.  He has wings which applies to the  Alphabet Challenge.   Then I carried it a bit further and found that The Shabby Tea Room was asking for vintage Halloween  using this picture for inspiration.  Eek!  I can do that I thought!  I love this brocade paper and I bought some fabulous lace trim that is reminiscent of years past.  Then I read that One Stitch at a Time and The Crafty Pad  are  looking for "Spooky" cards and so I added a few stitches to the card and thought the boo is supposed to be scary or spook you right?
