Hope YOu Can Cling To Challenge 11

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I took Ethan (youngest grandson) back home after a 2 day visit with us. We had such a great time with him. He loves the special attention that he gets when his brothers aren't around. We love giving him the attention as well.

He helped us with the leaf raking. We had to do it 3 days in a row. And after this super storm that's supposed to come through,  I am sure the front yard will be filled again with fallen leaves. Oh well its relaxing to be out there raking -for me anyway.

Now onto my card for today. This is another I made for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers.  These are being made for the UT MD Cancer Center in Houston TX. And also because October is breast cancer awareness month.

Judy is our hostess and she titled this challenge the "monster mash". Her challenge to us is a reminder! Get 'em mashed, squooshed, photographed, x-rayed, and checked! And to that end, we will be making creations inspired by "The Monster Mash"!

I don't have any monster type stamps so I went looking through my stash. I found these cute rub-ons from Stampin-Up's "so cool" collection. They look like they are getting ready to jam with Boris and friends(lol)!!

I paired them up with designer paper from the "good morning sunshine" collection also from Stampin-Up. My sentiment is also a rub-on from the same collection.

The layout is this weeks freshly made sketch #58.

That's my card for this challenge and also the end of my post for today. So until next time......God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Fussy and Fancy Blog has an anything goes challenge.
2.  Through the Craft Room Door has an anything goes.
