Cutesy Halloween!

It feels like I haven't been on in FOREVER, although in reality it's just been a couple days. The last few days have been a little rushed because I've been playing catch up since I was without my computer for a couple days. It never fails to surprise me how often I'm on the computer, and then maybe more, how much I need to use because there's quite a few things I can't do on my phone or iPad.

On top of that my favorite cousin is getting married this weekend so I have to trek out to Dallas with my family, thereby losing another few days. You know it's funny, talking to people not from Texas and from smaller states and you say 'oh it's JUST 6 hours, 5 depending on the traffic.' They look at you like your crazy for basically saying it's a quick trip to go to Dallas. Then you remind them that to go to some place like Houston and it's closer to 10 hours... Then I remember that in some places you can cross several states in just 6 hours. :) When traveling I've always found that fun, to be really close to a bunch of places.

My catch up has been to work on papers, which is more than possible on the iPad, but it's not possible to work in PowerPoint. There is Keynote, which I love, but my profs do not. Technically it does translate pretty well, but I've found it to be kind of a pain and a hassle trying to translate while moving devices. Easier to spare the headache and just do it on the computer.

The last thing I've been working on is an order for cards!!! Yay! My mom convinced me to put some of my cards on Etsy by saying that if I got a big order she'd come over and help me (btw, she didn't). So, I did some research into different Angel policies and decided to just stick with Provo Craft projects. It's a pretty great policy, up to 40,000 units a year, just don't use an image that is copyrighted by a company other than Provo Craft. I've been making invitations for friends for a while now, but it's kind of fun to say I actually got paid for the effort! 

The card that sold I have posted on this post!

So on to my card for today!

I've been so busy with other things that I just wanted to make something, not for anything or anybody in particular, just to create! :)
I pulled my inspiration from the challenge at The Paper Shelter right now, use a charm. 

For this I used:
The image is Witchy Wryn from Tiddly Inks.
She is colored with ProMarkers and Copics.
The candy corn paper is Cloud 9 Designs and all the rest is DCWV.
The web stamp is Inkadinkadoo and I heat embossed it with clear powder.
The ribbon is 3 Girl Jam.
The sentiment is My Craft Spot inked with Memento Tuxedo Black.
The spider charm is from Hobby Lobby.
