Just a Quick Card


I was trying to see if I could make one pretty quickly and this is what I came up with. Not sure I like the lack of details, I should have stamped the river rock card stock, edged the wasabi cs, put something in the corners... but then it would have taken another hour! So this is the trade off. All in all it is cute, I made it for the challenge of using twill. I have a box of twill scraps I picked up on sale and liked these three together for this card. That's it, busy day and no time to play!

Also, I might add this is a pretty innocuous Halloween card, I do not agree with the evil aspect of what All Hallows Eve or All Saints Day has become. It was a time to remember the Christian martyrs and also at one point was a feast commemorating the martyrs and saints. Lot's of changes over the centuries have been made for this but I like the fact that it was conceived as early as the Pentecost in Antioch. So now Christians tend to run from our now commercial Halloween but I bet a lot of them didn't know it started as a Christian Celebration. :) There ya go, brief history lesson of the day! Ewww I just re-read this, I must add that I am a Christian! I simply do not have the problems with Halloween that some people have made of it. I avoid costumes like witches and devils and such and stay with the scooby doo, spongebob sort of look. I think we can moderate ourselves :)
