I'm *STILL* in the process of moving- my studio won't be completed until after the first week in September when my cabinets will be installed. I CANNNNNNNNNNNOT wait! 

I created a very simple halloween themed card using the NEW Halloween Sampler stamp set, along with many other PS stamps/dies. ***So this card looks simple, but it took me almost 4 hours to make because I have everything in boxes! I thought writing out what was in each box was helpful... and it was... but I should have made an extra box for all of my "go-to" supplies so it was easier to create projects while I wait for my studio to be completed! OY! Next time---- wait! There better not be a next time for moving! LOL! 

I used some of my very old Carta Bella All Hallow's Eve papers and stickers for this project. I like the muted halloween colors and designs. I love that this Cozy Coffee die was made into a dangerous brew! Other PS stamps/dies include: Ahoy Me Hearty and Butterfly Duet

Be sure to stop by the PS blog for details about this blog hop and giveaway! And don't forget to leave some love on the DT's blogs:) 


That's it for me today- THANK YOU so much for stopping by! Be blessed!

Oh. Man! Moving can be such a nightmare! I feel your pain. My hubby and I have moved several times over the years. It's been a while since our last one...I have a feeling he is starting to get itchy feet again. {heaven help me!} hahaha!
Love your Dagerous Brew card! So fun.
Thanks for sharing.
