Bingo & Anything Goes

Now don't fall out of your chairs, it's NOT a Christmas card this time.......LOL  Since we are having fall like weather this week thought it was the time to get into fall cards even though I never send them out.  I like the cute and whimsical things of halloween and definately pass on the gorey stuff.  Never have been a fan of the scarey stuff and that probably is due to being traumatized as a child by some of the neighborhood boys...we all know boys will be boys. 

I fell in love with this stamp from Bells'n Whistles, Scarecrow & Little Wizard, such a sweet image and so cute.  The challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog this month is Bingo and I chose the row of Buttons, Charms, and Punches.  The DP is from K&Co and is probably a couple of years old. Love my stash!  Colored with Copics and gold glitter added for the rope and leg ties along with the stars on the hat.  The bow is a raffia bow tied with the button for the center and the charm added.  Wish I'd had a pumpkin charm.  I have a terrible time finding small charms to put on my cards.

Did you participate in the Digi Bells Monthly Blog Hop this month???  You still have time to win the new Elisabeth Bell digi image for the month celebrating Lynda's birthday titled **Lil Lynda's Piano Forte**.  OMG, she is just adorable so be sure to hop on over to the Digi Bells Blog and see for yourself.  You have 3 chances to win her and one is by entering a card, "Anything Goes" using any EB image, so I'm entering this card in that challenge also. 

Well folks, that's all from me today.  I've gotten 3 posts scheduled and another card almost ready to post so I'll be back real soon.  Will be hopping around to visit everyone later this afternoon.  I'm so enjoying being in my craft room this week and don't want to lose the momentum so see ya later.

Don't forget to leave me a comment so I don't miss getting around to visiting with you.
Have a fab weekend!
"Love & Hugs" Carol (Granny)
