I doubt anyone thought I could make a Halloween card with the code word "Hugs" - but here it is! The current AAA Cards CAS Game #199 is No Layers + Optional Twist "Hugs".

I'm madly in love with the Katzelkraft #KTZ234 "Les Nounounes", as witnessed by previous cards here and there . I first stamped this little guy in Memento "Tuxedo Black" dye ink and colored him with Copic markers. I then masked him off and overprinted blood splats from an ancient stamp set and black splatters from Tim Holtz "Haunted House". Finally I black heat-embossed both sentiments. I was disappointed with the rather fuzzy "Bugs & Kisses" but I wasn't going to start over!
