Tent Card!

I've had a tutorial for a tent card tucked away for ages but it was always overcome by events. Last week though I got the final push to try one when it was featured in the SCS newsletter. These are extremely easy to make and are guaranteed not to be thrown away by the receiver! tee hee...

I want to first shout out a huge thanks to Sannie in the Netherlands...I met Sannie probably 3 years ago over the internet and she sent me some lovely happy mail packages. One time there were the neatest stuffed Halloween doo-dads (for the lack of a better word!) and you'll see the bats here in this card. They are satiny and puffy so they make my tent card extra special in real life.



and a view from the side...


Copics I used...


Card Materials: all papers and stamps from The Angel Company
Stamps: Delightfully Spooky, Happy Haunting, Decorative Corners
Accessories: Miss Moxie Soar with it Collection and cardstock, CM circle cutter, thread, stuffed bats, Copics

Don't forget that this set, Delightfully Spooky, is just $10.95 this month when you make a $30 purchase...and I hope you come back on Friday to see some more super cute Halloween cards. They are different shaped cards that I have been itching to try and I guess this was the week to step out of my box and get busy.

I like to blog hop and along the way I pick up great tips not just for cardmaking, but also for cooking! Last week Ashley posted about the Delicious Food blog and off I went to visit. So far I've made the Summer Scampi and the Thai Green Chicken Curry and want to report that both were absolutely delicious. I did reduce the Parmesian Cheese by more than half for the scampi but it was so, so good and I always feel a bit better at the end of the day when I can serve my family something yummy to eat. :)
