Well, it's Sunday and the weather forecasters have predicted that the heat and humidity will finally abate today. Yesterday wasn't nearly as bad as it was last week, but still not a good day to be outside. I walked from my Spanish class in Printers Row to my Michaels, at most a 10 minute walk, but I was fairly uncomfortable. Among other thing, I was looking for Halloween paper for my upcoming Halloween cards, but they had next to nothing! Not only do I want instant gratification, but I am worried about how long a "pre-order" would take to ship because I'm trying to have my Halloween cards done by the end of this month so I can move on to Christmas. That's why I haven't ordered any online at the moment. My next big online purchase will hopefully be a pink ATG tape gun, but those are all preorders or "not available" at the moment. I may check Joann's today, but we'll see.
On to the card. This is a super simple card, although I was happy to use one of my new embossing folders, some Halloween bling which I did pick up at Michaels, and some ribbon from last year's Thanksgiving/fall Target dollar bin ;)
