TBS DT: Once Upon A Midnight Dreary...

Hello hello hello! Excuse me while I peek under the sofa cushions for the rest of August, 'cause I seem to have lost it. What happened? *blinkblink*

Aaanyway... We had a couple of unnaturally cool days here in Maryland. Of course this led my thoughts down the Autumn path, and here I am with a Halloween card. Haha! Ok, I have to admit I found this paper when I made my surprise attack on Kimm at The Beary Scrap a short while ago. On my first visit to the store I wanted to take one of everything home, but settled on papers... embellishments... and tools. Oh stop! Of course I left you some - go check it out!

One line of papers I *couldn't* leave on the shelves was Cosmo Cricket's Haunted. It's delicious! As I write this, it's not in the online shop, but feel free to give Kimm a call at the store and she can set you up with it, too. :)  I tell ya, it's SO worth it!

The design team's projects this week are based on our September 1st BSC #9 sketch challenge - you'll see the sketch "officially" when you visit here on Wednesday. Here's little Tilda as she channels Edgar Allen Poe for the season. I like to think she's writing invitations to a Halloween party. Will you come?



Challenges
  • Beary Sweet Challenge #9 (starts 9/1; ends 9/14): Fabulous sketch (if I do say so myself... haha!)
  • Stampin' for the Weekend #45 (ends 9/2 ): Anything Goes!
  • Stamping Vacation (ends 9/7): Very Vintage with Anything Faded - (fading text on the tag)
  • Bunny Zoe #3 (ends 9/13): Vintage
  • Lexi's Creations #21 (ends 9/4): Embossing
  • Shabby Tea Room #25 (ends 9/5): Old Meets New - My "old" is the much-coveted but hard-to-find heavily waffle weaved paper that I love to use for printing vintage images and stuff... I found a single sheet while "destashing" and did a happy dance! The Halloween papers are new. :)
  • Creatalicious #13 (ends 9/14): Vintage
Card Recipe
So, there's *only* one more day to enter our current challenge - In Stitches. If you've included stitching in any form -machine, hand, faux- we'd love to have you enter our challenge. You could win $20 gift voucher from The Beary Scrap!

We'll have a new challenge for you on Wednesday (can you believe it's the 1st of September already?!) and there's a little surprise in store tomorrow. Be sure to check back at the design team blog and see what we have up our collective sleeve!

Cheers,
Susan
