Squirrels are so cute

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. For me, this week, is going to be busy busy. I used my one day off to go to Craft Warehouse and Michaels, plus I made a couple of Halloween cards that I will get posted soon. Then after creating I had to clean up my mess.... never fails. I discovered that while I'm creating that I have issues with putting things away. I just can not find the spare seconds to put that ink pad, embossing powder or whatever the item might be, away. So all of my supplies starts to pile up and my working area becomes smaller and smaller. I know I am not the only crafter that suffers from this.

I'm still enjoying the Simon Says Stamp Monthly card kit for the month of October. I just love it. I'm always amazed at all the one layered cards that people create. I have yet to make a "one" layered card but this one is fairly close..... well kind of. It's a single layer mounted on Neenah Dessert Storm cardstock but then I added a strip of Simon Says Stamp Slate Cardstock underneath the squirrels to ground them. They were just kind of floating there, above my half wreath and it looked strange. I actually took pictures before adding the strip, then added it and retook the pictures. 

I utilized the solid bar stamp and used it to highlight a white embossed sentiment. Of all the cards I've seen using this stamp set I haven't seen anyone use that one stamp yet. I would like to see more examples using it though.
