Stirring Up Treats

Hi there, I hope you’re well and having a productive week.  While cleaning my glasses the other day the end piece that connects to the temple snapped off.  Well of course they can’t be repaired so off to the Ophthalmologists for an exam and then some place to make a new pair. 

Today's card is using the new Impression Obsession Witch which I just find so cute.  I tucked in the Memory Box Graveyard and Alder Tree, punched a bat and added the cat. Then framed the design using the Spellbinders matting Basics.  Since I can't cut a straight edge these matting dies are great.

On another note the deer in my yard are busy, I was standing on a ladder picking apples and tossing them onto the grass below, when a doe and her fawn come right over and start eating the apples right under the ladder.   They would not go away so I had to get the Mister to stand guard until I was done. Below is a picture of several deer just laying in my flower beds without a care in the world.

  1. Diane I am just loving your Halloween cards so cute,

  2. Another of your stunning "scene" cards. All your Halloween cards are amazing.
    Can just picture the deer, what a terrific thing to experience. We have lots of deer around here but none tame enough to come the garden.

  13. Fab card. The Witch with her cauldron looks good. The deer look very relaxed in your borders. I used to work in an office set in the grounds of a large country property and we regularly had the Roebuck deer come up to the office windows to see what we were up to. Hugs Mrs A.

  14. What cute dies and a fabulous card! I haven't had time to make any Halloween cards yet, but I would love to before the day arrives. Gosh, I need a trip to the opthamologist, too. My glasses keep falling apart. What a pain! The deer are so lovely posed there in your garden. I've had to make allowances for the deer in my garden, planting things they don't care for and still taking the occasional hit. Their visits are fewer since we've had the dogs, though.

  15. A fantastic card, I love your striking black and white design! Wow, your photo is brilliant - how lovely to have deer in your garden!

  16. Fun scene! Wow I can't believe how the deer come right up to you and lay in your flower beds, that is just amazing.
