Yup, it happened again! We whooshed around to another Friday! Not many left in 2015. Happy New Year! You laugh, but you wait. It's right around the corner!
Today I'm talking about friends and bringing you Halloween and more friends and Christmas and even more friends.
Let's start with Halloween since it's going to be Halloween tomorrow and then that'll be that for another year. I'm not sure if anyone else did this, but this card came about because Hammy and I were looking at the challenges, like we are wont to do, and when we got to the Less Is More challenge, which is a sketch, Hammy happened to be hanging sideways from his wheel.
So instead of seeing the LIM sketch on the left, he saw what you see on the right:
Well, I thought, what about that drawer of ancient mulberry paper we have in lots of beautiful colors? We shuffled back and forth between black, purple, and orange, and the orange won out. We are quite pleased at how kewl it looks. Making this card took me back to elementary school days when we made cards with just paper, skizzors, and glue! Imagine that!
Making old-timey cards is fun, but modern dies are the schweetest! I received that awesome half-circle inner die cut from my friend Cat Craig of Cat Luvs Paper. I admired a card she made a few months ago using the die (from Simon Says Stamp) and Cat kindly sent me a couple cuts so I could see if I really wanted to purchase the die. Is that a great bloggie friend or what! Thank you, Cat!

In the Small World Department, Cal and I found out that we were both born and raised in Iowa; in fact, we were born in the same county in Iowa! We also found out that we all lived for a while in the same area of Southern California and Barb and I both had careers as legal secretaries! Who knows what else we might have discovered if we'd had more time!
