Funky spooky-ish card



Hello all! This post is scheduled because I'm on the road headed to a 10 hour re-accreditation training today for work. Part of my job involves inspecting large loads of agricultural products that the US exports overseas. I have to be up on the regulations of ALL other countries in the world in order to let our shipments go, so I need to get refresher training every so often because countries are always changing their regs! 

This is for Sasya's Sketch #15! Want to play along? Prizes for the best works, random winners, and guest designers are all up for grabs if you do!
Here's the sketch for this week. You have until Tuesday to create a project and link it up at Sasya's Sketches.
I don't remember the stamps I used except for the sentiment, which is from Verve's set, Seeing Stars. The large wordy BG stamp and the tree stamp are wood mounted and I can let anyone who asks know the manufacturer tomorrow. PP from Basic Grey, black leafy stem from Prima, CS from PTI.

Our Kindergardener "graduated" today. I find these ceremonies a bit silly, but I couldn't not take part, so here's a few photos of the happy boy in his new graduation t-shirt and construction paper cap! (he's the smallest kid in school by far...still wears 2T shorts!)

He's a charmer though, and was very proud of his ceremony today.


Thanks for stopping by today, hope you play along with us at Sasya's Sketches!
