Happy Labor Day!
Today's idea is to make a card using the blocking technique.
Witch Marci - La La Land Crafts
Made this card using a blocking technique. Just use the space on the card by
cutting different sized squares and lining them up to fill the card.

This is the inside insert front.

This is the inside insert when opened up.

Card Recipe:

Stamps - Witch Marci - La La Land Crafts (5018)
Broom Sentiment - CC Designs
Inside sentiment and witchy on front - Just for Fun
Paper - Cloud 9 and Cosmo Cricket Matilda
Green Glitter Paper
Orange text weight insert
Die cut with Marci - XCut Do Crafts Rectangle Parenthesis (XCU-503045)
Pumpkin Border - EK Success, Black Cat Punch Fiskars
Distressed edges with Spiced Marmalade Distress ink
Witches shoes and ghost were cut from designer papers
Colored with Copics.

I made a Halloween card, but this technique would work for any occasion.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Hope those of you that have the day off enjoy the holiday.

Hi Friends,

I have had a blog on blogger for the past five years and had many loyal followers and made many friends.

A month ago, I had an issue with Goggle about renewing my domain name.  They wanted everyone to auto renew, which was not a problem for me, but I was unable to access what they were telling you to do to do that!  I began a dialog with them on
how I could pay the $10 fee three weeks before the deadline for my blog renewal.
Long story short many emails and a lot of frustration and they finally emailed me
on August 6th that they had set the auto renew for me and all was well.  On Saturday, August 9th I woke up to no blog.  It has been two weeks since my blog just disappeared.  And I am still waiting for them to initiate a buy back of the domain name and recover my blog.  What a mess.

I finally set up this blogspot so I could blog my design team cards.  Please know I had no way to let you know what happened to me once they took my blog down.

Hopefully, 5 years of blogging will be restored one day soon, if not I will have to start from scratch.
