A Little A-Musing Ghost...

Happy Friday - I hope that you have a great weekend ahead of you!

So, you know how we have talked about those projects that just plain frustrate us silly, 
and then those that we just love?  
Hee hee, well today's little card is one that you can't help but fall in love with.  
A couple of weeks ago, my friend Shirley came over to 'play'.  
We had seen a video on the Hero Arts blog, where they made a cute little tri-fold window card, and we just had to make one!  
She had also just signed on to be an A muse demonstrator, and had new Halloween stamps to play with.  
We were in stamping heaven!  
It always amazes us how we can make the same thing, with small variations, and such different results! 
Here is my card:

Card closed

Card semi opened

Card fully opened

Back of card
Images, cardstock, bat die cuts, sentiment - all A-Muse products.  Ink is Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Ribbon from my stash.
Edited:  This is 9" x 3", and is scored at 3" and 6".

Now, I hope that you will stop over at Shirley's blog and leave her a little bit of love!  
Her card is totally adorable!  
She used a different image, and shaded a bit differently, and it turned out so cute!!!

Hope this teensy little card gave you a smile, maybe even a giggle!

Have a great day,
Patti J.

Don't wail on the scale if you cheat when you eat....(ugh, this one was written for me)

I am jumping up and down in excitement. I want to make one of these!!! Let me know what size you started with and what size the final card was. Please!!

You two are the best at creativity! I'm jealous though for a couple of reasons - 1. Time! and 2. cappuccino! Not necessarily in that order!

Absolutely amazing! You and Shirley are so creative and so lucky to live so close to each other!

What a great fold, I've never seen this one and may just have to case. Love the papers. Off to check out Shirley's card. I have a couple of friends that we keep talking about getting together, need to make that a priority.

Dana said...

Oh my goodness... this is just too cute!! I never make these fancy folds because they always seem to start with 12x12 paper, which I never have just plain white or the colors I want for the base on hand. But I could do this!! I love it! Enjoying our gorgeous weather?
Hugs~

Patti, this is so stinkin cute! I saw this on the HA site and had it set aside for my local stamp store Monday Idea sometime, now I am inspired by what you did with it. Don't be surprized if you see it soon. TFS

This turned out cute as can be!
Love the shading in the inside.
Have to pop over and check out Shirley's.
I am having my group over tomorrow. We have been meeting weekly and having fun inspiring each other.
Have a great weekend sweetie

Adorable! I love the little piece of ribbon tied around the window. Great card Patti! :)

This card is absolutely darling. Thank you for sharing. Also, I hate your food for thought - I'd prefer something that just applied to someone besides me!

Thank you for your kind remarks. I love a*muse products! Several of my friends just signed on as demos. We were all TAC angels until recently when they closed (sigh). I was just a hobbyist, so am now just a customer. I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Shirley said...

This is awesome! One I will definitely be casing. Love that little ghost. I already have several ideas for this. I'm going to try and make it in an A2 size. Thanks for the inspiration on this! Hugs, Curt
