Cards and Mayhem at Casa de Krazy

Hello, hello! I hope every one's week is shaping up to be a great one. Ours is a little nutty but I would be shocked if things were normal around here. What is normal again? I doubt it is trips to the ER! Yesterday, my son's school called to let me know that he had a huge egg on his head after tipping over in his chair. The nurse said that protocol states that they call the parent before they transport by ambulance. Ummm....AMBULANCE???? I flew up there, right on the verge of tears, and he was not even crying. The egg is really bad and it turns out he does have a mild concussion but ambulance transport might have been a little much. This is after he had been sitting in the clinic with a wet paper towel over the wound for almost 30 MINUTES while they treat the kids complaining that they have a tummy ache to get out of a spelling test. Have they ever heard of triage? Worst goes first? So, that is why I wasn't here yesterday. I am sure you understand. :D

Enough of my woes. You came about a card, right? I wanted to show you another one of my entries for last week's Anni-Verve-Sary sketches. Today's card is done with AVS204. I was in the mood for a little Halloween since I found some cute new fall print paper at my Hobby Lobby. I pulled out a tried & true stamp set, SU's
Carved and Candlelit because as pumpkins go, those are just too cute. Take a look and I will tell you the rest.

This is a really cute sketch to work with and it is perfect if you want to incorporate several printed papers. I printed the sentiment so it would fit exactly inside the SU word window punch. I didn't have a good purple ribbon so I used a few paper strips instead. The tiny zig zag border underneath the black print is actually Martha Stewart's arch lattice punch that I placed to cover all but the outer edge. A lot of the new edge punches can be used this way so that they look a little different each time you use them on a card.

I think I will leave you with my supply list and a goodbye for now. Humpty Dumpty, the artist formerly known as my son is home today and we might just have a nap since we were up every 2 hours to check for concussion difficulties. Yawn! Have a great day!

  1. Kyla,
    So sorry to hear about all the mayhem! LOVE the card, but hate that the Scoglet got hurt. Hope he's better and back in the groove today.
