Wow! I can't believe it's Thursday already. The day almost snuck up on me! Since it is Thursday, I have a CCEE Stampers challenge card to share with you today. Cindy has challenged us to make a circle card, and stitching has to be included. You don't have to tell me twice. :) I love circle cards, and I love sewing on them. So, I used Wednesday's, Splitcoast Stampers sketch 349, as my starting point, along with the cutest "witch" ever from the Waltzingmouse Stamps set Cicely at Halloween. Isn't she adorable? I paper pieced her with some fun Fancy Pants dp called Oct. 31. I love the turquoise with the smokey gray.

I made the spiderweb bg with an Inverted Scallop die by Spellbinders, and a white Souffle pen, and added some Baker's Twinery twine that I got as a Thank you in my Eclectic Paperie order. Thanks Daisy!! :) I also added a sweet little PTI button and some bats that were made with a Martha Stewart corner punch.

That's sure to check out what the other girls have to share today. We'd love to see your circle cards too. Head on over to the CCEE Stampers blog for all the deets.

Thanks for dropping by!
Happy Stamping!

Absolutely fabulous! I'm going to tuck this card away for future inspiration! Love how you created the spiderweb. And I just ordered Cicely a couple days ago - the mail can't get here fast enough.
