Not too long ago, my good friends M and E came over for an afternoon of creative card-making. E brought some of her own supplies (including an impressive suitcase full of markers!) and I pulled out all of my own Halloween themed supplies. It didn’t take us long to come up with some ideas to start with and we were off and creating!!!

After a few hours, we took a snack break and I realized that I did not have any juice to offer my guests. Still in ‘creative-mode’, we came up with a ‘fancy water’ cocktail. We put slices of lemon, grapefruit and orange in the bottoms of each tall glass and crushed them. Then we filled the rest of the glass with ice water. I grabbed some fresh mint from the garden and M crushed it and added it to our glasses. Finally, we threw in some frozen Saskatoon berries, ice cubes and a straw. Very refreshing!

Then we got back to crafting! Even though we each used similar stamps, inks, papers, embossing powders and other accents, each one of our cards turned out to be totally different and unique.

(Note: most of the stamps used were from my collection purchased from Stampin’ Up!)

Wishing you all a safe, fun and creative Halloween tomorrow!
