Halloween note cards

I saw the cutest ATCs on Splitcoast by Binkyman99, Bad to the Bone. I thought this was so adorable and decided to CASE it. I didn't really want ATCs, since I wouldn't know what to do with them, so I made note cards.

I used the same stamp set, Batty for You by SU! I stamped the cat on shimmering orange card stock, punched it out with a circle punch, then punched out the bigger circle in shimmering black card stock. I used SU! designer paper and May Arts ribbon (LOVE that ribbon!). I made an ATC and put in on a 4x4 note card, made a little envelope for it and this is what I got. I gave this one to my mother in law, who is now back in the nursing home, feeling rather sad. I have seven more of these. I have a plan for them, but need to find out if seven is enough.

I was very busy this weekend. I made these note cards, finished my Christmas swap, finished a bunch of cards for submission, finished and mailed out some arch cards for a swap I was in, and have another card almost finished for a Get to Know You swap. I haven't been this productive in a long time. It was wonderful to have so many ideas and the desire to create at the same time!

What a brilliant idea to turn atc designs into notecards: ingenious!?!
Love your envelope too.

Hope your Mom is out of the doldrums soon and Congrats on your burst of creativity. :0) Mel
