Retro + a Bugaboo Digi + Halloween

I made this card for the current Cards in Envy - A Little Bit Retro Challenge.   At 1am, when I was trying to fall asleep, I remembered I had a freebie paper pack with chip board embellishments in retro colors and design from my one magazine.  At that point my brain started working and there was no way I was sleeping until I got this card out of my system.  It's actually a very simple card.

Here's another middle of the night card using Jesse Bear from Bugaboo Digi Stamps.

I'm going to enter this in the following challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons Challenge #51 - Make it Funny
The Male Room Challenge #4 - Sports and Hobbies

And my final early morning card....  using the front of a paper pad showing all the papers in the pack....
is a Halloween card.

I did a bit of coloring and some fussy cutting before heading back to bed, where I eventually got about 3 whole hours of sleep.  

Now I have a bunch of limas to shell and freeze.  TTFN


  1. Wow! Busy Busy - it's always fun seeing what you have up your sleeve, Miss Debi. These are sweet cards - love the colors in your halloween card - and the pretty paper striping (or paper pieces cut in stripes?) in the card below this post. They are all pretty! hugs, de

  2. Maybe you can have a nap after the lima beans are shelled! Great job on the three cards. Bright and cheery Halloween, fun sentiment on that little bear card and the retro colors on the first are super!

  4. Well, at least now I know I'm not the only one who has gotten out of bed in the middle of the night with a creative idea and made a card - and you made more than one! They're all great, bur I really love your retro card - gorgeous! Hope you get caught up on your sleep :-)
