A "safe" card...

...for my little grandson. I'm in "Grammie trouble!"
I created several Halloween cards to send to each of my four grandsons, and five year old Avery called me last night to say "Gwammie that witch "thweaked" me out, I don't like it."
So he's asked for a snowman to replace it, and this was first on my card agenda for today (lol).

I incorporated these challenges: Wednesday Stamper's chocolate (I used chocolate cardstock); Craft Challenge's don't use backing paper (I used one of the new Impression Obsession background stamps instead); One Powerful Hour's orange (carrot nose); Friday's alphabet challenge is "C" for circles.

I chalk-coloured and pop dotted parts of the Inkadinkado snowman stamp, used a Nesties border and some ribbon...and voila! My "safe card" for my grandson, which will go in today's post along with a new hat and scarf and mittens. Hope I've redeemed myself!


This card, with an Impression Obsession sentiment stamp, and a Judikins background stamp, is for the SPCC Finally Friday colour challenge:

Too Sweet! Hope that the snowman is a more welcome addition to Avery's world. Also liked the stairstep card from the last post. Wonderful colors and creativity. Best Witches for a very Happy Halloween.
