3 Cards and a Paper Craft = 8 Challenges

I took an hour before going to get my DIL, Miss V, & Dotty the dog to take a few minutes to make some cards. They didn't turn out exactly how I had envisioned them, but I guess they are ok. I think I am just very tired. I am not used to child sitting, dog sitting and adult sitting for 15 hours a day, but am just glad that I can help. My DIL is very good, she asks for very little. Miss V is feeling a little neglected. She told her mommy this morning that she was tried of her mom getting all the attention. LOL, then when I started to write up this post, she told me I loved the computer more than I loved her. NOT LOL. And the dog wants my attention too!
Anyway I thought the cards I made fit a couple of challenges

The first card is for Lord Have Mercy The paper is from Dove Craft last year, ribbon from my stash and the image was sent to me in a swap a couple years ago.

The Next card fit 2 challenges:
1. 2 Sketches 4 Youusing their sketch
2. Everybody Art Challenge Halloween
3. Stamp Something/
It is a little plain, but my mojo just wasn't lettng me think what else to put on the card.

The next card is for:

1. Paper Take Weekly Using their sketch
2. ABC Challenge/ Fl is for flying

The Candy Box for:
1. MAWTT using their sketch and background paper must have text on it.
2. Cute Card Thursday/ Candy themed.
I asked my hubby to get me some good candy bars for this box that looked a little Christmasy when he went to the grocery store today. He came home with 3 Muskateers. Can you guess why? Of course, they are his favorites. LOL
