Bewitched & Belated

So you would think that someone such as myself that makes cards a lot would always be on time in sending said cards.  Well...that would be wrong! I am notoriously late in sending cards...I have no idea why.  I have the cards...sometimes the cards I make are for a specific person...so why is it that they cannot make it in an envelope and out to the mailbox?  It is truly one of life's mysteries!


So this sentiment and witch from Hambo Stamps spoke to me!  See now I can have a Halloween type card for a belated birthday sometime in October...that is that I am not so late that I am into November!  The witch is called Witch's Brew and the sentiment is called Bewitched.  I watercolored the witch and gave her concoction and her hair a great sparkle with some orange stickles (you can see it better in the detail shot).


The layout for the card comes from the SCS Sketch Challenge #354 and the color choices fit in perfectly for the Hambo Hoedown Challenge #37 which was introduced today!  Make sure to check out the Hoedown and play along so you can get the next free digi!!


Now it is time to be off getting dinner ready for the night's activities.  Having children is exhausting sometimes trying to keep up with everything...but it is a good exhausting!  Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

Your dilemma is the same as mine...bewitching! I do the same thing. I have boxes of cards, but they never make it to the mailbox on time! Sigh....
