I love this time of year

I LOVE this time of year! I'm always interested in a deal and when the new cattys come out I'm on the lookout for stamp sets I put off purchasing that demos are unloading. Last night I purchased 3 used stamp sets, 1 used single stamp, 1 used standard wheel, 4 partial rolls of ribbon, and a full pkg of this SWEET DP! This - Bella Bleu - and the Cottage Wall, and Cast-A-Spell Halloween DP were probably my favs in the last catty, tho' all I purchased was a paper share's worth.

I used some of my new-to-me DP and pulled out some punches for the current Got Sketch 101 sketch and Punch It! challenges. Isn't it just gorgeous?! I'm just sayin' ... I love monochromatic CAS cards! Methinks they're soothing.
Quick post tonite, as I'm hitting the hay. This card's heading to my sister and her DH for their upcoming anniversary!


(all materials SU unless otherwise noted) stamps: Great Friend; paper: Bella Bleu DP, A1's Neenah Classic Natural White, Kraft card stock; ink: Color Box Frost White, Versamark (inside I stamped a pretty butterfly but other than that, it's blank); tools: ek success' scallop diamond edger and Marvy Uchida corner rounder punches, Cuttlebug with birds and swirls embossing folder
