Sugar + Kraft

Oh my word, what a weekend.   After attending the family Halloween party Saturday night, preparations for and the presentation of a children’s musical program at church on Sunday (I play the piano for the children), hosting my husband’s parents Saturday and Sunday, and finishing up PrincessA’s birthday celebration yesterday, I am tuckered.  And we still have some Halloween activities tonight!  I haven’t really had time to create, and in the spare time I actually have had, I’ve been glued to the TV watching with a broken heart all the devastation caused by hurricane Sandy.  It is just incredible what has occurred, and my mind is much occupied in prayer for all those affected.

We took the day off from lessons today, so that I could attend a morning doctor’s appointment and the children could go Trick-or-Treating at Hubby’s office.  We have a neighborhood pizza party for dinner, and then more Trick-or-Treating before and after that.  I thought about dressing up in a costume today, but I think the zombie-like look on my face may be all that I need!

Anyway.  Here is a card for the CASology #17 cue card challenge (which is ‘sugar’) and also the CAS-ual Fridays #76 challenge to use Kraft:

I took a few pages of stamped images with me to the Halloween party so I could color with my Copic markers during the sporting activities, but I only walked away with 3 finished images.  This little cupcake by the Sweet Stamp Shop was one of them.  I added a little bit of Stickles and glitter to the scoop bottoms.  There are two Scor Tape glitter strips behind the tag, and I tied off the top of the tag with some PTI white ribbon and rustic cream twine.  Having its initial use here is a sentiment from my Sweet As Can Be stamp set.  I really love how the word ‘sweet’ is separate for using a different color.

Thank goodness for simple projects that fit into small spaces of time!

Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
